April 22nd is Earth Day 2021

Earth Day is the time to pull together and remember that Mother Earth supports everyone’s health, survival, and livelihood.

Sophisticated-Smiles is dedicated to your health and the health of the planet and has some advice when it comes to International Earth Day.

What You Can Do to Help:

  • Reduce, Recycle and Reuse
  • Volunteer for Community Clean Ups
  • Educate Everyone
  • Conserve Water
  • Choose Sustainable
  • Think Before you Buy
  • Plant a Tree
  • Buy Energy Saving Light Bulbs

Water Conservation and Earth Day

According to Dr. Angela Cameron from Sophisticated-Smiles, you can save water by wetting your toothbrush and turning off the tap when you brush. In fact, turning off the water while you clean your teeth saves as much as four gallons per person every single day. That is over 1,000 gallons every year, which is equivalent to one hundred 4-minute showers.

Toothbrushes for the 21st Century

Speaking of brushing teeth, did you know that you can purchase biodegradable toothbrushes that help save the planet? That’s right, these days you can buy eco-friendly toothbrushes with handles made out of bio-based plastic.

Not a fan of plastic? No worries as there are several types of toothbrushes on the market made from bamboo. Bamboo is sustainable and is an excellent alternative to plastic.

Drink from the Tap

Drinking water straight from the tap is better for you, your teeth, and the planet. Tap water has a more neutral pH than bottled water. With that being said, it’s important to note that some bottled waters are just as acidic as soda.

Tap water also contains small amounts of Fluoride. Your dentist in Johnson City explains that Fluoride is beneficial for healthy and strong enamel.

This Earth Day do your part and turn off the tap, recycle, reuse and regenerate.
