How Much CO2e And Money Could You Be Saving?

Washing and Drying Impact

The total CO2e impact of washing and drying Medicus scrub caps is estimated at 3.3 kg CO2e per wash cycle. With an estimated 250 wash cycles per year, this results in an additional 825 kg CO2e per year.

Medicus Scrub Caps is the leading provider of reusable scrub caps to hospitals and trusts across the UK. We are committed to sustainability and reducing our carbon footprint, and we believe that our reusable scrub caps are the best way to achieve this.

Using data from the NHS, NHS Digital teams and the British medical journal, we have developed a calculator that helps hospitals and trusts to estimate their carbon emissions and spend on disposable caps. The calculator takes into account a number of factors, including the number of staff, the frequency of cap changes, and the cost of laundering.

The calculator shows that hospitals and trusts could save up to £10,000 per year by switching to reusable caps. In addition, the switch to reusable caps would reduce carbon emissions by up to 99% compared to average 8 scrub caps per surgery.

In addition to being more sustainable, reusable caps also offer a number of other benefits. They are more comfortable to wear, they last longer, and they can be personalized with names and roles. Medicus Scrub Caps offers a wide range of styles and sizes to suit all staff, including those who wear hijabs and turbans.

If you are interested in reducing your carbon footprint and improving communication in your hospital or trust, then we encourage you to use our hospital saving calculator. To find out more, please visit our website or contact us today.
