Happy Earth Day!
Today is all about giving back to our amazing world and establishing ways to protect it for the future. Originating in the 1970’s from U.S. Senator and Wisconsin Governor Gaylord Nelson, the team at Madison No Fear Dentistry understands the impact just one Wisconsinite can have on our world.
Much like Governor Nelson did in the 70’s, the team has collectively decided to find eco-friendly initiatives that support and bring our community together.
Throughout the years we have taken our green initiatives to the next level and have become one of the states first green dental practices by providing sustainable and environmentally friendly options across all aspects of our office.
Eco-friendly pens made out of recycled materials and bamboo components.
Patient bags that are designed to be reused time and time again.
100% recycled paper bags for in office purchases and gifts
Water and Coffee cups that are biodegradable.
Dental suction tips made from paper instead of the medical plastics that harm our planet.
As you can see, we prefer to use paper material as much as possible in place of plastic, reducing our total waste and increasing recyclable products that come in and out of our doors.
We are also proud to say that our office is solar powered. By using natural resources, we are able to reduce our carbon footprint while still providing the highest quality dental care in the area.
We’ve also partnered with terracycle, which is a program that allows both patients and non-patients to bring in used dental products so that they can be recycled instead of put into our landfills.
While we focus on doing all that we can to support our environment we also understand it will take a lot more than just the things we do to keep our earth clean. That’s why we like to support local associations that provide great efforts to clean up our city and help make a difference. To name a few we donate to Sustain Dane as well as the Clean Lakes Alliance, both of which work to keep our city a clean place to live in.
Alongside providing a great experience for patients, we put a great amount of focus on running a business with a healthy planet in mind. Thank you for reading and happy Earth Day!
