With the intention of leading the change towards replacing fossil-based raw materials with those derived from renewable resources, Orsing has now proudly advanced its environmental commitment by switching the entire production of its most popular item, the Hygoformic, to 100% polyethylene (PE) entirely made from sugar cane (Green PE).
The average dental clinic uses and discards hundreds of essential consumables such as saliva ejectors every day. By using bio-based PE as the raw material, the carbon dioxide level in the atmosphere can be decreased, which is a significant factor for our planet and future generations.
“As a dental manufacturer, we strive to find new, innovative ways to switch to renewable and recyclable materials for our products and packaging while maintaining product safety. Our decision to end all use of fossil-based plastics in the Hygoformic will decrease the output of carbon dioxide into the atmosphere by 385 t,” said Henric Karsk, CEO of DirectaDentalGroup.
Orsing is eager to help dental clinics to communicate their environmental choices to their patients. All clinics that purchase Orsing’s environmentally friendly products are automatically certified “Orsing—good environmental choice”. They receive a certificate in their local language to display in the dental office and can apply to be listed as green-certified clinics on Orsing’s website.
Like all Orsing’s Green PE-based consumables, the Hygoformic Bio is packed in home-compostable and biodegradable bioplastic and shipped in Forest Stewardship Council-certified cartons.
