Composters, hospitals and associations governing compostable practices are all discussing the considerable opportunity to use compostable/plant-based wipes in healthcare.
The benefits for healthcare to switch to our plastic-free and Australian-made wipes are that they eliminate the:
- manufacture of virgin plastic and the associated carbon emissions and pollution.
- shipping of imported wipes (75% is water) and the related carbon emissions
- supply chain risks associated with importing products.
We understand that composting wipes in a healthcare environment is unlikely due to clinical use and the high risk of contamination. Only a tiny percentage of the wipes from this environment is suitable for composting (eg those used in the low-risk office or social areas). The benefit of our product is the reduction of microplastics entering your clinical environment.
