Overview

TePe develops and manufactures a wide range of oral hygiene products, most of which are made from plastic. Plastic is a highly debated material, but there are also positive aspects of plastic. When it comes to health care, plastic is an essential material due to its unique characteristics and from a hygiene point of view. We will guide you through the journey from raw material to the final product and discuss how we work with sustainability and reducing our carbon footprint while producing high-quality oral hygiene products.  All of us can and need to contribute to reducing greenhouse gases and making conscious consumer choices is a big part of this. Besides helping you choose oral hygiene products with sustainability in mind, we will share tips on what you can do in your daily life and actions to take in the dental office for a more sustainable way of living and working.
