Like an increasing number of organizations and individuals, we are concerned with the impact of climate change on our communities and the ecosystem we share.
There are several factors we need to consider in understanding the impact of the PULL THRU™ Cleaning Brush products and their packaging, on the environment.
The embodied carbon of the PULL THRU Cleaning Brush product through its life cycle is an important consideration for environmental impact.
Plastics compared with other materials have a lower carbon footprint across the lifecycle from raw material extraction, through processing, disposal and transportation.
For example, the low weight of the PULL THRU Cleaning Brush product has the effect of reducing transportation emissions, and the combustibility of the plastics materials used in its manufacture helps fuel the incineration process after disposal. Factors such as these contribute to a lower carbon footprint than most other types of cleaning brush.
We provide a bulk pack solution that reduces the amount of product packaging significantly.
Packaging, especially single use bags, contributes to a product's carbon footprint, waste and pollution.
Our Manufacturing Advantage
The manufacturing base in New Zealand operates on electric energy only, which provides a particular environmental benefit as more than 75% of the country's electricity supply comes from renewable resources (a proportion that is forecast to grow to 98% by 2030).
Our CEO, Rod Galantai has had a strong personal interest in environment related matters for many years. He works to balance the obvious benefits to patients from the use of plastics for medical devices, with an ongoing desire to reduce our carbon footprint.
We also recently joined the Australasian Best Practice Network to gain insights from other business on more quickly improving our processes, which inevitably reduces waste.
