April 22nd is World Earth Day

World Earth Day is April 22. Since 1970, 193 counties have joined the cause. Here are a few simple tips to participate this year.

  1. Turn off lights when you leave a room.
  2. Use reusable coffee mugs and water bottles.
  3. Reduce your meat consumption.
  4. Recycle household plastics, paper and glass.
  5. Stop using single-use plastic bottles, straws and bags.
  6. Use environmentally-friendly, non-toxic cleaning products.
  7. Change your paper bills to online.
  8. Buy local, organic food.
  9. Fix leaky faucets and shower heads.
  10. Take the stairs instead of elevators.

We are also taking initiative in the office to reduce our carbon footprint. Here are a few examples:

  1. We sterilize our instruments in reusable metal containers instead of using single use bags.
  2. We recycle scrap metal.
  3. We have an amalgam separator. This ensures that when we remove old fillings, the amalgam can be disposed of property and not introduced into the environment.
  4. We recycle office paper, cardboard and plastics.

Enjoy your Earth Day (and Easter!).
