Environment

We take our commitment to the environment very seriously.  It’s technically challenging to achieve the best environmental standards, whilst adhering to strict medical standards for safety and performance. From reducing the size of our product packaging, to changing the types of plastic we use, we are always looking at ways to improve.

Packaging

In 2017 we assessed our product packaging and how we could reduce the amount of materials used.  We implemented a redesign resulting in a reduction of over 50% in materials required for our monthly kit boxes. We also reduced the size of our Stoma Stopper monthly dressing packs by 30%. This not only reduces the material used, but also leads to more efficient freight packaging and a reduction in our overall carbon footprint.

Materials

Aquaflush has never used DEHP materials in our manufacturing process. This was an ethical decision taken at the expense of commercial profit.  PVC that contains DEHP has a significant environmental impact, in addition to potentially harmful effects on neonates, children and adults exposed to it.

Our measures

These are just a few of the things we are currently working towards or have already implemented:

  • All Aquaflush cones are now made from silicone rather than PVC
  • We’ve reduced the number of plastic valves in our Compact monthly kits from 15 to just 2
  • All our tubing is non-toxic – in fact, it is so safe it is classified safe for infant chewing toys in the EU
  • In our Lite and Actif systems, we have reduced the length of the cone tubes by 40%
  • We are currently investigating more environmentally friendly solutions for the plastic bags used in our kits
  • As a company, we try to encourage the reduction in waste materials & reuse/recycle where possible
