Celebrating Earth Day for our local Dental Community!
Green Hygiene is a collaborative recycling project created by Drs. Koufos & Albright, at Orthodontic Specialists.
Our practice has participated in the recycling of toothbrushes for approximately three years now. Last year, Frank Hammond Elementary, placed 7th in the nation for their recycling efforts! Our toothbrushes contributed over 200 pounds of plastic. The best part is that these toothbrushes are melted down into plastic materials to be re-purposed for park benches and slides for our schools! In return, the entire student body was given toothbrushes.
269 million toothbrushes are consumed each year.
Our local recycling depository company does NOT recycle toothbrushes!
Only 5% of toothbrushes are recycled.
If you were able to create a linear line of toothbrush consumption, front to back, the line would circle around the earth 2 times!
"A SMILE CAN TAKE YOU PLACES!"
