This Good Friday is quite the contemplative one, blending the best of tree-hugging and cross-hugging in one wonderful day off of work for most of us.
So when I got a notice in my email box from Hu-Friedy in celebration of Earth Day today, I immediately made the phone call to get our practice started up on the Environdent program. Heaven knows our junk drawer is hard to open, with all the broken cavitron scaler inserts, bladeless curettes, explorers with gnarled tips, bald probes and scratched-up mouth mirrors. It’s a vast nubby world in there, but the hoarder in me just wouldn’t let any of it go, just in case American Pickers made a visit to our office.
Now that I’m signed up, Hu-Friedy’s going to send a bunch of boxes so that I can make our junk drawer look more nice and neat, like the one in their line drawing below. <!>
This is how the Environdent program works:
And HA! I’m going to get a pretty good deal for all that hoarding. For every 12 instruments that we send them to be recycled, we’ll earn one free Hu-Friedy instrument of our choice. When you look at our drawer, that means we’ll be able to get enough explorers to last about ten years.
You too? Well then give them a call next week (they were nice and let everyone go home early so don’t call today) and get your office set up on the Environdent program. For over 15 years Hu-Friedy has been recycling over three tons of surgical steel every year. Request your free Environdent kit at 1-800-HU-FRIEDY (1-800-483-7433), and feel good this Earth Day for keeping stuff out of the landfills, for justifying your obsessions, or for simply being a tightwad.
Didja Know? Hu-Friedy was founded by Austrian immigrant Hugo Friedman in 1908, whose grandson still owns the company today. So Happy Passover to everyone as well!
