Towards Plastic-Free Healthcare in Europe
Health Care Without Harm
Healthcare Without Harm aims to mobilise the healthcare sector in Europe to become a leader in the worldwide movement for solutions to plastic pollution.
HCWH conducts research into the categories and quantities of plastics that European hospitals use and dispose of at their facilities. Using the results of this research, HCWH experts educate hospital staff on the health and environmental impacts of their plastic use and suggest actions to reduce its harmful effects. The project stimulates innovative problem solving for single-use plastics (medical and non-medical) and unsustainable disposal methods, particularly through mobilising demand for sustainable plastic and packaging alternatives within European markets.
