Same great DenTek quality but kinder for the planet!

 

At DenTek we are always striving to make our production processes as environmentally friendly as possible. Our best-selling Triple Clean and next-generation Cross Flosser floss picks features a handle made from bio-based plastics (produced using a renewable raw material made from Sugar Cane plants) instead of fossil fuels which contribute to global warming.  This natural, sustainable material reduces carbon emissions by up to 80% more when compared to the creation of ordinary plastic.

Our new range of eco-friendly products represent the greenest dental products we have ever produced without compromising on the high quality DenTek is so well known for. Our new floss picks are as strong as conventional plastic and the resin is GMO-free (genetically modified organisms), meaning it doesn’t upset any food supplies or sensitive ecosystems after disposal.

Our most eco-friendly product ever!

While most interdental care products are currently made from hard-to-recycle plastics, we’ve created DenTek® Earth Friendly Interdental Brushes with handles made from Birch Wood which are sustainable, environmentally friendly and very hard-wearing. Each box even comes with a recyclable sugar cane cap to keep the brush clean at no extra cost to the environment.

We use Birch Wood for our handles because it is known for its positive environmental credentials and premium quality. This sustainable material is climate positive, which means it actually removes carbon dioxide from the atmosphere.  

Also, because the Birch Wood handles of these products absorb less moisture than bamboo alternative interdental brushes, they are less likely to split from the bristles in a bathroom environment – and therefore need to be replaced less frequently.
