Inventor Comes Up With Toothpaste Pod That Makes Tubes Thing Of Past

June 7, 2016: 12:00 AM EST
Irish-American inventor Wayne Solan has developed the Poppits, a soluble toothpaste pod. Designed to melt in the mouth in five seconds, Solan’s invention eliminates the need for toothpaste tubes. Each year, 1 billion toothpaste tubes end up in landfills. Currently on community-funding site Kickstarter, Poppits requires $50,000 to manufacture the first batch.
