From an Industry-Wide Challenge
Each day the healthcare industry generates 6,600 tons of waste - 85% non-infectious, of which 20-25% is plastic. Patient safety is of the utmost importance in the industry, and corners cannot be cut in order to maintain the highest of sterilization and product safety standards.
What can change is the outcome of non-recoverable, clean flexible packaging waste that would normally be sent to landfill.
Inspired to change the outcome of this material, Terri Shank, a third generation, co-owner of Beacon Converters, Inc. a sterilization packaging manufacturer located in the Northeast, formed iRenditions.
