“We have undertaken an initiative to reduce waste created by protective gloves (required as part of our PPE), which were traditionally incinerated. We have identified a washing process for used gloves whereby they could be washed and re-used rather than going for incineration as hazardous waste. Over 6000 items have now been washed and returned to service saving over .5 Tonne of material that would have been incinerated.
This has the associated benefits to the environment, the raw material that hasn’t been used in the making of new gloves with the associated energy usage, waste that is generated during the manufacturing process and the carbon footprint in moving around the raw materials and new gloves for distribution.”
