Ansell Healthcare Products has improved its glove packaging with a newer, greener design that reduces packaging waste. Ansell’s increased-count exam pack contains more exam gloves per box – and per case. The new dispensing box still fits into customers’ existing wall brackets, yet provides 50 to 100 percent more gloves, depending on the specific glove selected.
The new box design also substantially reduces packaging waste. For example, Carolina’s HealthCare System (CHS), which oversees 25 hospitals, will reduce waste by 80,000 lbs. per year with the new packaging. This is equivalent to 20 average-size U.S. cars. Also, by containing more gloves in a single box it also reduces the need for storage space.
The new packaging initiative is part of Ansell’s corporate-wide mission to “Start Clean – Run Clean – Leave Clean.”
