As per reports, Procter & Gamble (PG) Oral Care is working to incorporate healthy oral care habits while reducing the impact on the planet through its new environmental sustainability commitments. The platform, “Healthy Smiles. Healthy Lives. Healthy Planet.” in association with its oral care brands, Oral-B and Crest. Oral-B’s Clic manual toothbrush is a replacement of brush heads, resulting in 60% less plastic used over two years in comparison to a regular toothbrush changed every 3 months.
Both Oral-B and Crest are working to educate and make 2 billion people aware of healthy oral habits by 2030 while reducing their environmental footprint and allowing responsible consumption along the way. As per the World Health Organization estimates, oral diseases affect 3.58 billion people, with cavities being the most prevalent issue.
“We are on a mission to help more people around the world understand the connection of their oral care routine to their overall health and how small changes can make a big impact,” “As we encourage everyone to brush twice daily for two minutes, we’ll continue to introduce products that make people want to build those healthy habits.” stated Alexandra Vegas, Senior Vice President Global Oral Care, P&G.
During Covid times when people were unable to visit their dentist, the brands helped protect oral health through educational articles, videos, and live streaming sessions. In the U.S., the brands have donated millions in product and dental care through their partnerships with Dental Lifeline Network, Feeding America, and America’s Tooth Fairy.
The companies are also working to encourage and enable responsible consumption by making their packaging 100% recyclable, including the transition to recyclable toothpaste tubes in Europe, the U.S., and Canada by 2025. Today P&G Oral Care factories send zero manufacturing waste to landfills globally, and all U.S. and European sites purchase 100% renewable electricity. The company has improved energy efficiency across its global Oral Care production sites by nearly 20% since 2010.
