Bow Lane Go Eco Friendly

14th January 2020 by

Here at Bow Lane Dental in Central London, we have made some sustainable changes to make sure we stay as Eco-friendly as possible. 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. We’ve put lots of practices in place to make sure we are doing our bit to save the planet. 

Drop-in and recycle

Box Recycling

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. Meet the Terracycle UK Zero Waste Box. You don’t even have to be a Bow Lane patient to pop in and drop them off! You can recycle anything from empty toothpaste tubes and toothbrushes, to Invisalign aligners and Tepe UK inter-dental brushes. Find out more here.

Plant-based cups

Eco-friendly plant-based cups

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!

Environmentally friendly suction tubes

Eco-friendly suction tubes

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.

Taking care of business

Recycled toilet paper

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.

Award-winners

Eco-friendly awards from clean city.

We’ve been recognized 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 won the Chairman’s Cup for the Clean city awards in February 2020!
