10 SUPER SIMPLE Ways to Go Green

Easy Being Green 2We’re all about making it easy to be green, so in honor of Earth Day we’ve compiled a list of the 10 easiest ways to go green in your dental practice TODAY!

10 Easy-Peasy Tips to Go Green in Your Dental Practice:

  • Switch your subscriptions from print to digital
  • Ditch the Styrofoam and single-use disposables and bring in reusable mugs, glasses and utensils
  • Set office printers and copiers to double-sided
  • Ask the last team member that leaves at the end of each day to make sure everything with an “on/off” switch is turned off
  • Empty out that drawer of old hand instruments and donate them to a local school art program (sterilized of course!), or recycle them through Hu-Friedy’s Environdent program
  • Replace just one incandescent light bulb with a CFL or LED bulb
  • Order environmentally friendly office products, such as recycled printer paper or folders
  • Bring in a live plant! They help purify indoor air, and help you and your patients connect with nature
  • Give patients toothbrushes made from sustainable materials
  • Encourage your patients to turn off the tap when they brush, saving 90 glasses of water a day and join our Save 90 a Day campaign!

HAPPY EARTH DAY! How will you celebrate?
