Make Every Day Earth Day

Earth Day began in 1970 as an event to raise awareness of our environment. What began as a single day in April is now recognized around the world to bring attention and education to global environmental issues. Conserving our natural resources, reducing water and air pollution, and developing green technologies are all ways in which we can improve the environment around us.

Reduce, Recycle, and Reuse

One of the easiest ways to participate in Earth Day is by simply reducing the amount of refuse that ends up in landfills. Many communities have recycling programs for paper, plastic, and metal refuse. By keeping recyclable items out of landfills, we reduce the need for new disposal space and the amount of energy needed for burning refuse. Recycling products also helps conserve the resources that are used in making new products.

You can save money by reducing your consumption of many everyday products. Single disposable water bottles can be recycled but they are costly. By using filtered faucet water, you can conserve your financial resources. Disposable paper towels can also be wasteful. Consider reusable cleaning rags for the majority of your chores.

Reusing items saves both the environment and your finances. A large number of products can be re-purposed to create a new item. Old furniture can be remade into a new piece. Old clothing can be used for craft items. If you are not able to find ways to reuse your old items, donate them to a charity. Remember to continue your positive environmental steps on a daily basis.

Other things you can do to improve the environment

Everyone, young or old, can find ways to participate in improving the environment. Some ideas include:

  • Planting trees
  • Picking up litter
  • Reducing energy consumption
  • Walking, bicycling, or carpooling to work or school
  • Disposing of hazardous waste properly
  • Using rain barrels to conserve water for plants

Earth Day is designed to appreciate and celebrate the health of the earth. Keeping the earth healthy is important, but keeping your mouth healthy is important, too. Healthy teeth and gums contribute to your overall health and well-being, so remember to call our team at Towne Centre Family Dental and the Implant & Smile Makeover Studio to schedule an appointment. Have a happy and healthy Earth Day, from the doctor!

I am very pleased with Town Center Family Dental in Hillsborough NJ. I have been a patient of the practice for over four years. The dental treatment and services are state of the art and performed with the utmost professionalism and efficiency. I have had some interim dental issues between my six-month scheduled cleanings. These issues have been addressed immediately. I have never had to wait to get an appointment or the matter not taken care of in a timely manner. The insurance/billing office is equally efficient looking into out-of-pocket cost and communicating that to the patient. Staff here are very professional, knowledgeable, and efficient. They are a comprehensive dental practice.

I absolutely recommend Towne Centre Family Dental and the Implant & Smile Makeover Studio for every dental procedure, from cleanings to implants! Dr. Al, Merlinda, and the entire staff are always so kind, professional, and beyond talented! Melissa, the financial manager, has also been great to work with and always available to answer any questions I’ve had. In the past, I never enjoyed visiting the dentist but can honestly say that has changed since coming to this practice. They are the best!

Very pleased with latest visit with Dr. Mark and my dental work. Was amazed at the job done and level of ability and compassion for the patient. The entire staff is pleasant courteous and eager to inform the patient of each step of any dental processes. Also amazed of the ability to manufacture dental caps on site. Each visit continues to be good. Cleanings are productive and I like being advised on how to do better. Been a few years now and am still pleased with the service and professional work. Again the staff is amazing.. courteous and efficient. Dr’s are fantastic. Today met Dr Chris and Lucy. Thank for explaining what needed to be done and being efficient and courteous. Great work.
