President’s Message

The last year revealed the acute vulnerability of our healthcare system and its reliance on disposable PPE. Hospitals with washable PPE programs did not suffer serious shortages — soiled PPE is washed overnight and delivered back to the hospital the next morning for use again. Many healthcare organizations made the switch to washable PPE last year and now reap the benefits of improved quality, comfort, and sustainability credits, as well as the significant reduction in waste costs.

 The challenge ahead is to maintain client satisfaction with washable PPE and other textile products. Some clients who converted to reusables are under pressure to switch back to single-use, disposable PPE. If you or your clients are encountering such pressure, check out the ARTA library and resources that offer data and information on why washable textile products are superior to disposable items — Because the Future Is NOT Disposable!
