10 products carry eco group's seal of approval

Several products have achieved the Eco-Dentistry Association's (EDA) newly created EDA Accepted Seal for products and services that meet specific environmental criteria, the organization announced.

The product lines announced at the ADA annual session last month include:

    energy conservation
  • RAMVAC waterless vacuum, for water conservation
  • CustomAir LubeFree compressor, for pollution prevention and energy conservation

Hu-Friedy

  • Enzymax Earth ultrasonic solution, for pollution prevention
  • Team Vista water line cleaner, for pollution prevention
  • Environdent instrument recycling, for waste reduction

"The most common question we're asked at the EDA is: 'What products should I buy?' " Those products featuring the EDA Accepted Seal are immediately recognizable to the burgeoning market of dental professionals who are going green," remarked EDA Director Susan Beck in a press release.

Once a product or service is confirmed as EDA Accepted, the manufacturer will receive an electronic version of the EDA Accepted Seal, which may be used on any marketing, advertising, and packaging materials, such as catalogs, websites, and product packaging. The manufacturer can then promote the product or service's eco-friendly benefits with the added credential of the EDA Accepted Seal.
