Tepe reduces the carbon footprint of special brushes by 80%
TePe says it has taken the next step towards a more sustainable range by reducing the carbon footprint from its special brushes by about 80%.
A spokesperson explained: “Helping consumers make informed choices without having to compromise on quality or functionality is key in TePe’s journey towards a more sustainable range.
“Taking care of your mouth throughout life will benefit your overall health and well-being. TePe’s special range of products and solutions is developed to meet specific individual needs and make everyday life easier, suitable for example when having braces or implants. Close collaboration with dental professionals ensures efficient, easy to use products with a high level of quality.”
Helena Ossmer Thedius, TePe’s Marketing and Innovation Director, takes up the thread: “TePe introduced the sustainable interdental brush earlier this year. We are now taking the next step towards our aim of carbon neutral products in 2022 by significantly reducing the carbon footprint from our special brushes.”
By replacing fossil raw material with fossil-free pine oils in a mass balance system, the carbon footprint of these special brushes is reduced by about 80%. TePe and their raw material suppliers are certified by ISCC to guarantee full traceability for the material used, and its sources.
All production takes place at the manufacturing plant in Malmö, Sweden, using 100% renewable energy. Part of it comes from the company’s own rooftop solar power facility. TePe aims to conduct its work in accordance with the UN Sustainable Development Goals of Agenda 2030.
Helena Ossmer Thedius added: “All actions matter, therefore we encourage all users to dispose of products and packaging responsibly.”
