We are Taking Small Steps to Make Earth A Better Place
Forever Aligned Club, along with its partner charity, The Good Steward, would like to help reduce the amount of plastics deposited in landfills which eventually end up in the ocean PLUS give you a charitable donation at the same time.
Send us your used retainers, Invisalign trays, or other clear aligners, and receive a charitable donation in the process. The Good Steward will recycle them by grinding them down and use them for non-dental uses instead of dumping them in landfills or our blue oceans!
Did You Know?
It is estimated that around eight million metric tons of our plastic waste enter the oceans from land each year. Most of our waste consists of everyday items such as bottles, wrappers, straws or bags. Yet the vast majority of debris found floating far offshore is much smaller: it’s broken-down fragments smaller than your pinky fingernail, termed microplastic.
Microplastic accounts for 93,000 and 236,000 metric tons of the plastic waste entering the ocean from land in a single year. That’s equivalent to the mass of more than 1,300 blue whales!
This poses a huge threat to our ecosystem and our beloved ocean animals. Ocean plastics pose a threat and the risk to sea life is determined by the amount of debris an animal encounters, as well as the size and shape of the debris.
Let’s do the Earth some good as well as your wallet! Recycle your used and broken braces, aligners and retainers and receive a charitable donation.
*Recycled plastic will eventually make their way into some fun new “Shift Happens” products. When you purchase these products, the proceeds will go back to The Good Steward Charity as well.*
