Reducing My Carbon Footprint &
Use of Natural Ingredients
I will use as many natural, eco-friendly products that is safe and sanitary as possible. As a Registered Dental Hygienist, I take pride in client safety. Here are some of the ways I can achieve that:
- whitening products are made with natural ingredients (see above)
- washable and reusable PPE (personal protective equipment) and barriers, instead of plastic and disposable
- toxin free, waste free toothpaste
- biodegradable toothbrush and cotton swabs
- naturally flavoured floss, eco-friendly
- custom made natural lip balms and lip scrubs

The Future is Bamboo Toothbrushes & Cotton Swabs
Canadian made! 100% biodegradable. Meaning it will decompose into soil and go back to the Earth.
Earth's lungs. Bamboo absorbs carbon dioxide and releases 35% more oxygen into the atmosphere than an equivalent of regular mixed forests.
Bamboo offers a chance to drastically protect the forests that we have left.
Zero deforestation. When it is harvested, it will grow a new shoot from its extensive root system with no need for additional planting or cultivation.
Very little waste. After harvesting, virtually every part of the plant is used to make a wide variety of products. From soil-enriching mulch to toothbrushes, straws, utensils, to even furniture! Every part of the plant can be utilized.
No fertilizer, pesticides, or herbicides needed. Bamboo requires no agricultural chemicals to thrive. Yay!
Economic development. Bamboo production and the manufacturing of bamboo products provides job opportunities in areas that desperately need social and economic stability. We currently source from China & Vietnam, where MOSO bamboo is widely available from responsible farmers.
Their certifications include P.E.T.A.’s vegan and cruelty free,BPA free,
Health Canada registered and FSC [Responsible Forestry].

Black is White Toothpaste
Without bleach, without abrasive agents. The whitening toothpaste «Black is White» removes discolouration the gentle way: activated charcoal simply adsorbs discolouration particles. Plus: «Black is White» even boosts oral health. Enzymes thus support the salivary functions; hydroxyapatite remineralizes the enamel and closes dentin channels.
• Activated charcoal: adsorption of discolouration particles
• Hydroxyapatite (nano): caries prevention, repair of micro-lesions, pearlescent and tooth sensitivity protection
• Sodium monofluorophosphate: caries prevention
• Enzymatic system: supports saliva and its functions; caries prevention
• Physical blue filter: makes teeth appear whiter
• Contains no questionable substances such as SLS, triclosan or plastic particles: very low irritation potential
• Made in Switzerland
• Non-abrasive: 76 (RDA)
