Reducing Carbon Footprints

The management of plastic waste plays an important role in maintaining a healthy global environment, and Medbuy would like to recognize the contribution our Members have made to waste reduction in their facilities. 

 

By using the reusable sharps container program Sharpsmart, last year Medbuy Members diverted 314 tonnes of plastic waste from landfill or incineration. That is equivalent to 4,142,470 1-litre plastic bottles.
