RECYCLE ON US

SMALL CHANGES CREATE BIG IMPACTS.

At Crest and Oral-B, we know that small changes can have a big impact. From the toothpaste you use to the energy we consume when making toothbrushes, small acts can lead to a healthier mouth and a healthier planet.

That’s why we’re working hard to reduce waste, energy consumption, and greenhouse emissions. But we can’t do it alone. With your help, we can make an even bigger impact—here’s how.

Less waste, more planet

Less waste,
more planet.

We’ve made important changes to our toothpaste manufacturing process that has helped reduce our water usage by millions of gallons. But together, we can make an even larger impact on water consumption.

Simply turning off the faucet when brushing your teeth can save up to 2 billion gallons of water per year!

Across North America, our manufacturing sites produce toothpaste and toothbrushes using 100% Renewable Electricity—reducing greenhouse gas emissions equal to removing 10,000 cars off the road for an entire year.

And, when you buy products made in North America you help reduce transportation emissions, too—like the Crest and Oral-B products that are made right here in the USA.

Our manufacturing sites in North America are certified Zero-Manufacturing-Waste-to-Landfill. Over half of all the waste generated is immediately recycled, and the rest is converted back into energy—creating a lasting impact that benefits the planet, communities, and future generations.

Join us by participating in Recycle on Us our sustainability effort to recycle your old oral care products.

Recycle on US
beats the recycling bin.

Sponsored by Crest & Oral-B, Recycle on Us helps tackle oral care waste like used toothbrushes, brush heads, toothpaste tubes, and dental floss, some of which are never processed through traditional recycling. With your help, we can change that.

Send us your used dental care products (yes, even your old toothbrush). We will organize, sanitize, and recycle it all for you—giving recycled plastics entirely new life. That’s more school benches, new bottles, and even clothes!

Brush. Rinse. Repeat. beats the recycling bin
Bigger smiles for the next generation.

Our Clic Toothbrush uses 60% less plastic than other manual brushes, while still delivering a reliable clean with the latest bristle technology all through a sleek and sophisticated design.
