Help your dental practice go greener in various ways during April. April is considered Earth Month to focus on sustainability and how to help make a difference. Celebrating Earth Day and Earth Month can take many forms like community clean up, planting trees, beach cleanup, riding your bike to work, and more! Below are a few ideas you and your team could begin to implement at your practice.
Many practices have already made the transition to paperless records and reminders. However, if your practice hasn’t yet, you may want to consider starting. You can not only save trees, but also money!
Add recycling bins
Adding recycling bins around your practice and breakroom and reducing the size of garbage bins can help encourage more recycling of items. This can be an easy addition for both your team and patients!
Upgrade your patient lip balm
If your office provides lip balms for patients to take with them, consider upgrading to an all-natural lip balm with a recyclable tube. You can be assured that you are providing your patients with high-quality items while being environmentally friendly!
Consider bamboo toothbrushes
If you provide patients with toothbrushes after their appointments, consider adding a bamboo option to the choices. Bamboo brushes are sustainably sourced, biodegradable, antibacterial, and chemical-free. Your team can be assured they are great to offer patients and great for the planet.
These are just a few ways your office can begin to celebrate Earth Month and go greener throughout the year. To learn more about personalizing your eco-friendly options, visit TessOralHealth.com or call 1-800-762-1765.
