How Our Mission Drives Everything We Do

At Elims, our mission is simple: to help people’s health and create a solution to solve plastic waste in all of healthcare. We just happened to start with oral care.

 

Why oral care? Because everyone on the planet has to brush their teeth! This means the impact of oral care products affects every single human on earth. Did you know that over 1 billion toothbrushes are thrown away in the US every year? Well, according to the National Geographic, a toothbrush or toothpaste tube may be small but has an extreme effect on our environment. That is not good news. And no one should feel like they need to compromise their health for the planet.

 

We know we are the ones to do something about this massive issue. We only bring out products that we actually know about and are sure that work, on top of being sustainable. Our founding team comes from a combined 45 years of building life saving medical devices and direct experience in dentistry, so we know we have what it takes to create products that benefit health. We also spent 6 months at the world’s largest business accelerator for clean and sustainable technologies called the Cleantech Open where we learned how to make our impact matter. 

 

That’s us! Plain and simple, and we are here to do what’s right for human and planet earth’s health (hint: no green washing). 

 

So talk to us! How can we do more to rebuild the future of sustainable oral care? Answer in the comments section below.
