The Evolution of Sharpsafe®

In 1979, Sharpsafe® introduced the world’s first purpose designed sharps container into the market and have continued introducing pioneering products into the healthcare industry.

In 2021, we significantly reduced the amount of single-use plastic used in our manufacturing by introducing 100% recycled materials into all our accessories and product features.

Now, in 2022 Sharpsafe® are proud to be introducing another world’s first into the market with our 5th generation Sharpsafe® containers.

The 5th generation of Sharpsafe combines high-performance sharps waste management with our eco-conscious manufacturing. By switching our manufacturing over to our low carbon recycled materials, we have reduced our carbon footprint by 80% in comparison to the use of virgin materials and are helping to support healthcare facilities to achieve their carbon net zero targets.
