EDA creates Eco-Dentistry badge

By DrBicuspid.com staff writers

February 6, 2012 -- The Eco-Dentistry Association (EDA) is offering a new way to reward consumers for visiting an eco-friendly dentist and making eco-friendly oral health choices: the Eco-Dentistry Badge.

The Eco-Dentistry Badge, created in collaboration with the company Practically Green, allows users to track their eco-friendly oral health behavior, earning points for each initiative, according the organization.

The customized badge encourages consumers to do the following:

  • Use a toothbrush made from recycled or renewable materials, and properly recycle it when it's time for a new one.
  • Turn off the water while brushing.
  • Seek oral care products free from chemicals, toxins, and alcohol.
  • Visit an eco-friendly dentist or participate in the EDA's Green My Dentist campaign by sending a letter to their dentist encouraging them to "go green."

Completing these actions allows users the opportunity to earn 65 points in the Health category of Practically Green's badges. Consumers are able to share their progress in earning badges through their own social media networks, and Practically Green will let consumers know of others in their community who have also earned the Eco-Dentistry Badge.
