8 Billion People, 1 place we all call home. Happy Earth Day and Earth Month everybody! This movement started back in 1970 with the ambitious mission to “diversify, educate and activate the environmental movement worldwide.”
We believe that being an environmentally conscious company that supports a sustainable community requires a “give and take” approach. That’s why we offer our take-back program to help our customers reduce landfill waste. Just send us any of your used oral care products (even non-Goodwell products!), and we will recycle them through TerraCycle.
We’d also like to share that we have partnered with EcoCart to provide a carbon negative order option for our online customers. Since Goodwell Co is already a certified Climate Neutral Company, an order with EcoCart takes your order beyond neutral and into carbon negative (which is ironically a huge Positive!). Not only will you reduce your (and our) carbon footprint with each purchase, but you also get to choose where the adjusted amounts are donated with each transaction, and what impact it will make. We love the full transparency in supporting our sustainability initiatives, while you exercise your purchasing power.
We can stop #climatechange if we all need to do our part. We’re proud that we’ve committed to be Climate Neutral with the help of @beclimateneutral. This spring, we’ll measure all of our 2020 emissions, offset our entire footprint by investing in #climatechange solutions, and come up with a plan to reduce our emissions moving forward.

And in case you missed it, here are 4 Fast Facts on how plastic toothbrushes impact the planet:
- Every piece of polypropylene plastic ever created still exists somewhere. Most toothbrushes are made of polypropylene plastic, or from fossil fuels.
- 1 billion plastic toothbrushes are thrown away every year – enough to stretch around Earth 4 times!
- Many plastic toothbrushes end up in the ocean, where they’re often mistaken for food by marine life.
- Toxins are released when plastic toothbrushes break down in saltwater. These toxins are then consumed by oceanic life, either directly or indirectly.
We create responsibly-made products and are always working towards incorporating more natural, renewable and recyclable materials. We’re dedicated to sustainable processes and practices that enhance and empower the human ritual of personal care through innovation, technology and impact.
Happy Earth Day, Month, and Year!
- Goodwell Co.
