Here at Sloop Dental Co., we are dedicated to not only providing the best care for our patients, but for our community and environment too. As part of this, we’ve decided to join the composting movement through KC Can Compost.
In addition to composting everything in our office, employees will be provided with their own 5-gallon bins to take home.
About KC Can Compost
KC Can Compost is a nonprofit committed to the transformation of Kansas City’s social and environmental landscapes. They believe composting benefits so many aspects of our community:
- Divert waste, help the environment: By composting, we have an impact on greenhouse gas emissions, landfill capacity, soil health and food nutrients, water quality, and help to create natural fertilizer
- Create jobs and boost the local economy: KC Can Compost trains and hires formerly homeless men and women
- Environmental justice is social justice: KC Can Compost is committed to creating a healthy, sustainable, and just Kansas City by exposing the injustices that exist in low income and communities of color
Do You Part: Compost Your Bamboo Toothbrushes
Did you know your bamboo toothbrush (the one you receive at every cleaning) is compostable? Bring your used toothbrush to our office and compost with us!
We’re so excited to take this next step in being an environmentally friendly office and we hope you’ll join us too!
