Colgate reduces plastic waste with Replaceable-head Toothbrush -Colgate KEEP
Colgate-Palmolive showcased its prowess with the launch of Colgate Keep – a metal handle toothbrush with replaceable plastic heads, to tackle the problem of plastic waste contributing to landfills .
Colgate KEEP toothbrush has a reusable metal stand-up handle with a soft-bristled
disposable head with a tongue scraper. This removal of plastic from the entire handle leads
to a 80% reduction in plastic. In addition, Colgate KEEP Toothbrush has an outer cardboard
packaging made with 60% recycled cardboard.
Commenting on the launch of Colgate KEEP toothbrush, Arvind Chintamani, Vice
President Marketing, Colgate-Palmolive (India) Ltd. said, “Colgate has a commitment to
eliminate one-third of our new plastics and achieve 100% recyclable, reusable or
compostable plastic packaging by 2025 – and the launch of Colgate KEEP is a big step in
that direction. This beautifully designed toothbrush will help people build more sustainable
habits, while keeping their mouths clean and healthy and their smiles beautiful!”
