In A Tube
There are still some tooth pastes come in metal tubes BUT be aware that all metal tubed toothpastes I have come across have a plastic cap and the tubes are lined with a plastic liner. If you are happy to go ahead one such is
Marvis Classic Strong Mint Toothpaste
Apparently ” What makes Marvis unique is the range of exotic flavours – enticing and addictive tastes that produce a whirlwind of sensations.

In A Jar
Recently started using Georganics toothpaste, and would highly recommend. Comes in a glass jar with metal lid and the seal is biodegradable. It does come with a little plastic spoon, but if you email them, they’ll send yours without one (they’re also hoping to swap to wooden spoons soon).
with thanks to Rebecca.

And thanks is to Carriad Wholefoods for letting me know about Truthpaste
natural toothpaste which also comes in a glass jar. They stock it and you can buy on line.
Both the above come in glass jars with metal lids. Chances are the lids are plastic lined but it’s an improvement.
