It’s no question that Mom knows best!  That’s why a new wave of moms is choosing to go green, and why more moms are choosing Marc Allen Orthodontics!

“Eco-moms” are growing group of mothers who are committed to learning more about environmental issues and implementing green-friendly lifestyle changes for themselves and their family.  Since women make most of a household’s purchasing decisions, these moms are advocating for more green products and services in every aspect of daily life.

Famous Eco-moms include Jessica Alba and Gwyneth Paltrow.  But it’s not just celebrity moms who are getting in on the action!  Starting with the tiniest of changes, eco-friendly initiatives can make a measurable difference for the environment, your health, and your wallet.

Simple first steps to becoming greener include eating locally grown fresh food, using cleaning supplies with no toxins in them, and using energy-smart appliances.  Getting kids involved in making these changes is a great way to instill environmentally friendly habits early on.

You can even make your mouth greener!  Well, not literally, of course.  Marc Allen Orthodontics has always been dedicated to making a difference in the environment, which is why Dr. Allen is North Carolina’s very first orthodontist certified by The ECO-Dentistry Association.  Eco-dentistry focuses on making dentistry practices more green by reducing water and chemical waste, saving energy and money, and most importantly using eco-friendly products on his patients.
