Impact

At GoldaTech, one of our primary goals is to help mitigate the environmental impact of PPE manufacturing by partnering with industry leaders and disruptors to implement and sustain a circular economy in PPE manufacturing. All materials and manufacturing are sourced and performed within the USA, for the USA. This mitigates the dependence on overseas manufacturers, helps stimulate local economies and reduces the carbon footprint of our gowns.

 

Our Reusable Gowns

GoldaTech is proud to support and promote our wide offering of reusable gowns.

Our materials for reusable gowns are sourced within the USA and maintain a high level of barrier protection for up to 50 laundering cycles, thus extending the lifespan of one gown considerably. Implementing a reusable gown program within the healthcare industry not only is proven to be more cost effective, but have a kinder impact on the environment than the current disposable products. Once the GoldaTech reusable gown has fulfilled its number of wash cycles, we collect, sterilize and process the gown. The materials are then repurposed into other industries through our strategic partners, thus diverting the gowns from landfills.

 

Our Single Use Gowns

Our single use gowns are made from clean, recycled, post-industrial materials, helping divert tons of industrial waste from landfills. GoldaTech is in the process of partnering with domestic non-wovens recycling facilities to develop a circular economy in which ‘used’ gowns would be sterilized and processed, as per traditional medical waste disposal guidelines, and then melted back down to their original polymer forms. The materials are then repurposed into other non-wovens industries, thus helping to divert a significant amount of plastic waste from being deposited in landfills each year.
