International Earth Day is celebrated around the world to make global citizens aware of our responsibility to care for the planet. Protecting our environment and natural resources is easy when we practice sustainability through at-home care:
-Water: Don’t let the water run while you’re brushing your teeth! Turn the water on and off only to rinse.
-Toothpaste: Roll your toothpaste tubes to squeeze all the toothpaste out before opening a new tube.
-Toothbrush: Don’t toss that toothbrush! Repurpose it around your home to clean faucets, drains, tiles, grout, tires…you get the picture!
As you can see, it’s not that hard to care for the planet while caring for your dental health. Start this Earth Day and keep it going all year long!
