Reducing the carbon footprint by 80%, TePe now offers consumers the opportunity to choose a more sustainable interdental brush.
TePe now offers a line of sustainable interdental toothbrushes. In the manufacture of the brushes, the company is replacing fossil raw material with fossil-free pine oils as part of a mass balance system. This reportedly results in reducing the carbon footprint of TePe’s interdental brushes by 80%.
TePe and their raw material suppliers are certified by ISCC to guarantee full traceability of the material and its sources. The TePe range of interdental brushes is developed in collaboration with the dental profession and includes nine color-coded sizes for safe and efficient cleaning.
According to Helena Ossmer Thedius, innovation and marketing director at TePe, the company aims to reach CO₂ neutrality for all products and packaging in 2022.
All TePe’s production takes place at the manufacturing plant in Malmö, Sweden, by use of 100% renewable energy. Part of it comes from the company’s own rooftop solar power facility. TePe aims to conduct their work in accordance with the UN Sustainable Development Goals of Agenda 2030. All actions matter, therefore TePe encourages all users to dispose of products and packaging responsibly.
