Lowering Environmental Impact

The Vernacare system uses 60% less water than some alternative systems.

Vernacare's medical pulp products are manufactured using over-issued clean newspaper and a wax resin to ensure products hold water for a minimum of four hours.

No bleach colouring is added, ensuring products are as environmentally friendly as possible. The products are disposed of in the market-leading Vortex pulp disposal unit, using cold water and significantly less energy than traditional bedpan washers. The biodegradable pulp slurry is then safely washed down the drain.
