RECYCLE ON US
SMALL ACTIONS FOR POSITIVE IMPACT
At Crest and Oral-B, we’re helping less plastic material waste go to landfill and finding innovative solutions through our Recycle On Us program.
Some oral care waste cannot be processed through traditional recycling. With your help, we can ensure these used products find new life. Join us in this effort with Crest and Oral-B Recycle On Us. We accept toothbrushes, brush heads, toothpaste tubes, mouthwash containers, floss containers and floss picks.
How can you get started? It’s easy! Request a free shipping label below, gather and put your materials in a box, and send them our way so they can be recycled and turned into useful items like park benches, clothes and more!If you are visiting from Canada, please click here.
INNOVATING FOR THE NEXT GENERATION
We continue to innovate our products, manufacturing and distribution processes—bringing the latest in sustainable oral care to you.
Our Oral-B Clic manual toothbrush gives you a remarkable cleaning performance and has a replaceable brush head that allows you to reuse 80% of the brush when you replace the brush head every 3 months.
REDUCING ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACT
We’re continuing to make changes to our manufacturing processes to help improve our water efficiency by 35% by 2030. 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 8 gallons of water a day!
Across North America, our manufacturing sites produce toothpaste and toothbrushes using 100% renewable purchased 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 communities and future generations.

We appreciate your continued action – together we can ensure people and our communities thrive, today and for generations to come.
