Sustainable Oral Care Brand Elims Celebrates Earth Day by Partnering with Carbonfund.org to Further Reduce the Environmental Impact of Oral Care on the Planet

April 19, 2021

In a continued effort to reduce their carbon footprint and bring sustainability to the dental sector, oral care brand, ELIMS, will become the newest member of the Carbonfree® Small Business Partnership Program, supporting their expansive environmental impact projects that promote climate change solutions and help provide cleaner air and energy.

 “A deep-rooted desire to do better for the planet drives every decision we make at ELIMS,” said Belinda Lau, ELIMS founder and CEO. “The oral care sector is, unfortunately, one of the most wasteful industries, but it’s not an easy problem to fix. In our homes, billions of oral care products and packaging are thrown away every year in the US and in the dental office, single-use plastic products are common, and often required by safety and regulatory standards in dental settings to ensure sterile equipment. ELIMS is committed to creating safe, sustainable solutions like plant-based and recyclable oral care products and packaging, while also becoming a leader for industry-wide change. At ELIMS, our primary goal is to reduce our environmental impact as much as possible, but for the ways we can’t reduce, want to make sure we’re doing everything we can to offset our impact. That’s why we’re proud to be partnering with Carbonfund.org in order to offset our carbon footprint. We truly believe in their mission and support their efforts to increase energy efficiency, forest conservation, renewable energy availability, and climate change education.”

Currently, the oral care sector is causing an unproportionate environmental impact. Everyone on the planet needs to brush their teeth, which makes standard oral care products like toothbrushes and toothpaste tubes huge wastes of plastic that pile up in our landfills. ELIMS is solving this problem by offering sustainable solutions for healthy smiles at any age. Their north star commitment is to completely reduce waste in healthcare, making a partnership with Carbonfund.org a perfect match.
