Clean Health - Brushing is Not Enough

The dangers of skipping Flossing

If you plan to spend your later years eating more than yogurt and applesauce, invest in some floss. No matter how thoroughly or long you brush your teeth, you're missing a good portion of their total surface. That's like washing one armpit after a workout. But the dangers of skipping floss go beyond hygiene: The bacteria that linger can increase your risk of heart disease. I use Reach Ultraclean floss, which stretches to glide between teeth.

Clean Earth: Calculate Your Footprint

Becoming Carbon Neutral 

By aiming to become carbon neutral you make your business stand out from the crowd, manage the risk of being left behind in an area set to become common practice, and position your business to profit from carbon trading.

Before you can decide on the most effective way to become carbon neutral you need to measure accurately the greenhouse emissions caused directly by your own operations and indirectly by your suppliers and the use of your products. An assessment is best done with the help of an experienced carbon consultant and specialized assessor.

For information on calculating your carbon footprint visit the website of Greenhouse Gas Protocol (www.ghgprotocol.org) and initiative of the World Business Council for Sustainable Development.
