PPE Waste

Reduce Waste with Reusable Respiratory PPE

As more and more leadership teams seek sustainability, most managers are looking for new ways to reduce waste.

When it comes to purchasing industrial PPE, safety managers are mostly concerned with factors such as cost, effectiveness, and fit testing. For construction sites and manufacturing facilities that frequently or occasionally make use of disposable respirator masks, convenience is also a concern. However, that convenience comes at a cost. Disposable respirators have a high burn rate. This expense can take a large chunk out of your annual personal protective equipment budget. Disposable respirators and gloves also contribute a significant amount of plastic waste to the environment each year.

1 HEPA Filter + Hygiene Kit

Monthly Expense $320 - $500 at $4 or $5 per mask Monthly Replenishment Kits start at $105.89*


Reducing industrial PPE waste is a cost-saving measure that will also help support your company’s commitment to corporate social responsibility and sustainability. According to Harvard Business Review,  reducing plastic waste is a simple way for companies across all industries to reduce operational costs, comply with any existing - and future - local, state, and national environmental regulations that aim to minimize plastic waste, and increase customer loyalty. Any efforts your company makes to reduce environmental waste is a great PR move - as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic, consumers and companies alike are increasingly interested in sustainability.

The easiest way for manufacturers and construction companies to reduce industrial PPE waste is by replacing single use respirators with highly protective reusable, eco-friendly powered and supplied air respirators. Switching from disposable respirators to PAPRs also helps reduce your spending on PPE.
