As part of Plastic Free July, HCWH Europe organised a webinar to show how waste audits support a reduction of plastic use in healthcare and presented the tools needed to make a change in your own healthcare facility. A recording of the session and the featured presentations are available below.
The healthcare sector consumes huge quantities of single-use plastic items and is reliant on unsustainable supply chains that are easily disrupted, as demonstrated at the peak of the COVID-19 pandemic, when supplies were scarce in many areas.
Reducing single-use plastic offers many co-benefits for environment and health. In many cases, safe and reusable or reprocessable alternatives to single-use plastics used in healthcare already exist, but it can be challenging to know where to start. . .
