Bio-plastic toothbrush wins award
The TePe GOOD toothbrush, the UK’s first sustainably produced bio-plastic toothbrush, has been awarded Best Oral Health Product at the OTC and Product Retail Awards 2019.
The news was announced at an awards ceremony, hosted at the Radisson Blu, Dublin.
As the only industry awards that specifically recognise the leading manufacturers, companies and products within the OTC market, the OTC and Product Retail Awards provide a platform to celebrate product innovation, marketing, training, education and value to customer.
Awards were presented across 22 categories, ranging from Best in Women’s Health to Best Oral Health Product.
The winners were decided by a judging panel comprising leading pharmacy professionals from multiple and independent pharmacies, as well as pharmacy buying and symbol groups.
Chris Conway, TePe Marketing Manager UK and Ireland, said of receiving the award: 'It’s always rewarding for TePe to be recognised for our innovative products. A number of leading brands feature in the Oral Health Product category; to win the award in the face of this competition is a fantastic testament to the quality of the TePe GOOD toothbrush, which has been developed with dental professionals to offer consumers a more sustainable choice without compromising on product quality, design or hygiene.”
The TePe GOOD toothbrush is the first product in the innovative TePe GOOD range. The use of renewable raw materials, such as sugar cane and castor oil, enables TePe to recirculate up to 95% of the CO₂ emissions during the product’s life cycle.
As with all TePe toothbrushes, the product is manufactured at TePe’s factory in Malmö, Sweden, which has the largest solar power plant in the city. The TePe GOOD toothbrush is available from Waitrose and dental practices, retailing at £2.75. To find out more visit https://www.tepe.com/uk/about-tepe/sustainability/good/.
