In the last couple of years, PPE disposal has become a hot-button issue.
A comprehensive data analysis from Science Direct showed that we now create 1.6 million tonnes of PPE waste on a daily basis and it will likely undo years of work in removing plastic from our oceans. There’s enough plastic in our oceans without the addition of disposable PPE which has seen a permanent rise in sales.
In the UK alone we use 7.7 billion plastic bottles A YEAR.
All this plastic needs to go somewhere and that shouldn’t be our wonderful ocean.
The cradle-to-grave certification is part of The Carbon Neutral Protocol 2022, which we have opted for with Ecovive. Certified products are carbon neutral past the point of delivery and to the end of the product’s life. The carbon offset has been calculated from:
Once calculated with the savings that are made through the manufacturing process, we are left with an amount of carbon to offset to certify the product carbon neutral. We have achieved this via ‘Climate Impact Partners’ who are ‘ICROA’ accredited (International Carbon Reduction & Offset Alliance).
We have invested in the Acre Amazonian Rainforest Conservation REDD+ to offset the carbon that is produced for this range and certify ‘carbon Neutral Product’.
In a world where climate change destroys communities and natural habitats, let’s work together on a solution.
