medical devices, surgical
packaging and products
Smart Sustainable Design™ is where clinical performance meets sustainable design. Single-use surgical necessities designed to deliver high-performing solutions that address three key areas of the environmental impact of patient care: plastic production and waste, CO2e, and chemicals of concern.
Our innovative and circular product design takes an agricultural byproduct and upcycles it into a sustainable healthcare solution.
“The products that are used by healthcare in providing its key services each carry embedded energy and carbon in their production, use and disposal. Switching to more sustainable products across healthcare purchasing can also reduce a hospital’s climate impact for a better future for its patients, employees, and surrounding community.” 1
