With so many different factors impacting the environment on a daily basis, it’s becoming more apparent that we need to take more action to look after our planet.
Here at Bow Lane Dental we have made some sustainable changes, and we will keep on looking for more ways to help keep our dental practice as Eco-friendly as possible.
One of our latest changes in the practice has been to ditch plastic cups. We’ve now opted for a plant-based cup that are lightweight, strong and have a low carbon footprint. The sustainable cups are fully recyclable and can also be composted in just 120 days! You can read more about them here.
We also offer recyclable coffee cups in our reception waiting area, and use recycled coffee pods too!
Our Dentist Stewart Beggs discovered another amazing find – environmentally friendly suction tubes. These suction tubes are developed to save and reduce the use of fossil resources and greenhouse gas emissions.
Want to recycle your old toothbrushes, toothpaste tubes or boxes of floss? We are proud to have a recycling box specifically for recycling your oral hygiene products. You don’t even have to be a Bow Lane patient to pop in and drop them off! Find out more here.
We’ve swapped our toilet roll for an Eco-friendly, recycled version. The toilet paper is made WITHOUT trees and 50% of profits go to help build toilets for people who need them.
The company do not use any inks or scents. According to their website, more people in the world have mobile phones than toilets. Think about that next time you’re texting on the loo! You can find out more about the brand by clickinghere.
We’ve been recognised for our recycling efforts numerous times, and have been awarded Platinum status for the Clean City Award for two consecutive years. As well as this, we have been shortlisted for the Chairman’s Cup for the Clean city awards this year, and we’ll find out if we’ve won in February!
We are now in the process of becoming a Carbon Neutral practice, so keep an eye out for updates on our carbon neutral status. Take a look below at our latest recycling report from December 2019.
