Green healthcare is a project that stands for a smaller environmental footprint from the healthcare sector. We hope to achieve this by helping hospitals to use less (plastic) single-use items. Naturally, we also support other methods to reduce carbon footprints, like changing the food served to patients.
At least 30% of the waste produced by Dutch hospitals exists of single-use, disposable products. Research shows that it is safe to replace many of these items with reusable versions. This way, it is possible to reduce the amount of waste, and with that the amount of pollution, caused by the healthcare sector.
Are you interested in making your hospital or office more sustainable? Feel free to contact us.
Together we can make healthcare green!
The list of single-use products is a long one. A few examples:
Gloves and facemasks
Covers for lamps, tubes and cables
Cellulose absorbing pads
For many of there products, there is a safe and more sustainable reusable alternative.
