Regis has announced a new collaboration with 12-year-old Ned Heaton and his Turtle Tribe toothbrushes, an environmentally friendly bamboo toothbrush which is being rolled out across all of Regis’ 65 Homes.
As part of their Sustainability Plan, Regis is replacing approximately 30,000 plastic toothbrushes purchased annually with sustainable, biodegradable bamboo alternatives from The Turtle Tribe.
In a bid to encourage people to make the change away from plastic, Ned created a biodegradable bamboo alternative and Regis is thrilled to be a part of this sustainable change. Switching to bamboo toothbrushes helps save the environment, especially the oceans, and will have an enormous impact of the planet. As bamboo is a plant, it can be cultivated over and over again without harming the environment.
"I'm proud to partner with Regis Aged Care. By 2050 there's predicted to be more plastic in the ocean than fish. It's time to change. And by partnering between my generation and yours, we are that change. Thank Regis for showing leadership, and switching to bamboo toothbrushes." Ned Heaton, 2020.
In pursuing a vision of promoting and enhancing the quality of life of residents, Regis acknowledges the environmental and social impacts of their operations and are committed to actively managing and minimising our carbon footprint. Learn more about Sustainability at Regis here.
