As a nurse you see firsthand the plastic waste being generated in the Operating Room and other areas of the hospital. We share your concern about the pollution and environmental impact of plastic and are committed to rethinking and redesigning these products.
Using a cradle-to-cradle approach, we look at the function of a medical device or product used every day in the O.R. and ask how we can reduce or eliminate the plastic in this product by replacing it with materials that are more sustainable.
