Protecting the Planet & Your Colleagues
Free Mask Recycling for all our Customers
The environment has always been at the core of who we are and what we do, so it should come as no surprise that our Personal Protective Equipment has a host of environmental options:
We supply a wildly successful reusable mask that replaces the Type IIR water resistant masks. Made in the UK from UK grown renewable sources our reusable masks have the lowest Carbon impact of any mask available in the UK. Where disposable masks are the only option to maintain anti-viral integrity we supply recyclable masks and can arrange for their safe and responsible disposal.
We supply a range of non-chlorinated sanitisers and cleaning products that are made in the UK and are often certificated as vegan and organic while still providing effective and reliable anti-viral cleaning. Our hand sanitisers are also entirely made in the UK and none of them contain persistent organic pollutants.
As with all our supplies the profit from these supplies help protect vulnerable groups in the UK.
