PureLife Dental is “watching its Ps” when it comes to its triumvirate of operating commitments.  PureLife empowers dental practitioners to make a positive difference in the health of their patients, staff, and environmental impact, so that achieving better health can be a realistic part of every purchase decision they make.

The firm’s “Patients, Planet, Profits” Pledge ensures that PureLife Dental’s customers benefit from the company’s goal to provide the highest quality and most environmentally healthy products at the best available prices.  From complete waste solutions to everyday dental supplies, PureLife Dental believes that healthy patients, a healthy planet, and healthy profits can all be achieved, with no tradeoffs required.

Through Carbonfund.org, PureLife Dental offsets 100% of the company’s annual operational emissions, as well as all of the shipping emissions for every product they sell, from the manufacturing line to the customer’s door.  Since 2008, PureLife Dental has neutralized over 16.5 million pounds of carbon emissions by supporting Carbonfund.org’s reforestation projects around the world.  Those carbon emissions reductions are comparable to the quantity of carbon dioxide sequestered by over 192,000 tree seedlings planted and grown over a ten-year period. As a result, PureLife Dental customers are reducing their own environmental impact with every order placed through PureLife.

“When we launched PureLife, the first thing we did was to see how we could reduce the impact of shipping products all over the country,” said Cassie Walker, VP of Marketing and Sustainability. “This was important, because dentists could buy their supplies from anyone, but if they buy them from us there’s a reduced eco impact, automatically.”

“We chose Carbonfund.org for our offset program because they had credibility – their projects are third-party validated and additional – as well as the expertise to help us calculate our emissions until we developed that capability in-house,” said Walker. “They’ve continued to help us refine our program and figure out approachable ways to talk about it with our customers.”

In addition to their carbon neutral operations, PureLife’s Feel Good Collection include products that have an environmental advantage over their traditional counterparts. Whether they contain recycled content or non-toxic chemistries, or they come in reduced or recycled content packaging, these products allow dental practitioners to make a difference without sacrificing anything. 

PureLife Dental’s commitment to “Patients, Planet, Profits” underscores its sustainability leadership in the dental supply industry, and Carbonfund.org is honored to partner with PureLife to help achieve these goals.

It’s a lot easier to follow your mantra and lead by example when helping businesses transform their IT services and their operational sustainability.  This is exactly what Carbonfree® Business Partner Mantra Computing is accomplishing. 

Mantra Computing provides business in the Boston and Providence areas with business technology consulting and support services, using a high-tech, high-touch approach to business technology services, and working closely with business owners and managers to understand their businesses and financial needs.  Mantra’s TotalCare Managed Services, various hosted solutions and on-call support solutions help clients stay productive and ahead of their competition. 

In order to lead the way, Mantra Computing has instituted a variety of sustainability initiatives for their own business, many of which they then recommend to their clients. 

For the past five years, Mantra Computing has neutralized its own annual operational emissions through the Carbonfree® Business Partnership program by supporting clean energy technology and carbon reduction projects around the world. 

“One of Mantra Computing's tenets is a responsibility to its surrounding community,” explains Garrett Brown, President of Mantra Computing.  “We also believe that we have a responsibility to do something about global warming, which is why we’ve chosen to partner with Carbonfund.org.” 

In addition, Mantra Computing assists clients with technological solutions to conserve energy by implementing automated processes to power down idle equipment during non-business hours.  Mantra uses remote support and remote access technology tools to minimize unnecessary travel for service support, and they help clients recycle old electronic equipment responsibly through partnership with ACT Secured Recycling.  Leading by example and maintaining a commitment to operational sustainability is part of the proven formula for success at Mantra Computing.
