A manufacturing change allows the company to produce the same high quality interdental brushes with less environmental impact.
A manufacturing change to eliminate fossil-based materials is allowing TePe to produce its interdental brushes while reducing the carbon footprint by 80%.
The shift involves replacing raw materials derived from fossil-based sources with fossil-free pine oils during the production of the interdental brushes, to reportedly reduce the carbon footprint without negatively impacting the quality of the brushes.
Both TePe and the company's raw material suppliers are certified by ISCC to provide full traceability of all the materials used to produce the brushes. The company's goal is to reach carbon neutrality for all of its products and packaging by 2022. TePe's Malmö, Sweden production facility is powered by 100% renewable energy including rooftop solar panels.
