It goes without saying that the primary effort a company makes is to earn a profit from the product it sells. Naturally, any production process generates resource consumption and pollution, and even the products themselves, at the end of their life cycle, become waste.
There are companies that have no qualms about these issues, and simply seek profit. There are companies that adapt to the trends and demands of the population, and implement more or less effective measures. Then there are companies that do everything possible to mitigate the environmental impact of their production, often anticipating measures that will only come years later. These are companies that have sustainability in their DNA, that made environmentally and people-conscious choices even before these things had a name.
Choosing one of these companies as a supplier means improving the quality of life for everyone: hospital patients, nursing home guests, nurses, doctors, administrators, the general population of the surrounding area and of the area around the manufacturer.
