Scientists work so hard to improve human health, however the activities of the science and healthcare industries have detrimental effects on the health of our planet.
Every year, the bioscience industry alone produces 5.5 million tonnes of plastic waste – the equivalent to the combined tonnage of 67 cruise ships.
The majority of this plastic waste is incinerated, producing over 9 million tonnes of CO2 – the equivalent to driving around the world 708,000 times in a car!
It is time for the science and healthcare industry to tackle this head on, so we can protect both human and planetary health.
The climate crisis is the largest and most pervasive threat of our lifetime. Small, collective changes can have a huge impact.
RecycleLab is on a mission to disrupt the current clinical waste management industry by providing a sustainable solution for single-use plastic waste in the science and healthcare industry. We want to do our bit to help tackle the climate crisis and protect our planet.
