EcoAid products will be used in Vaccination Hubs across the country as part of the urgent fight to protect Australians from the COVID-19 global pandemic.
As featured on Channel 9 News, Prime Minister Scott Morrison and Premier Gladys Berejiklian visited the Royal Prince Alfred Hospital to witness the trials taking place ahead of the Pfizer vaccination roll-out commencing today. The team at EcoAid are delighted to see our fully biodegradable, compostable and plastic free kidney dishes showcased on the desk as frontline workers administer the very first vaccinations against COVID-19 for the country.
The EcoAid Sugarcane Series of medical hollowware including the featured medical-grade kidney dish above, are made from sugarcane fibre, a readily renewable resource which is produced using a low-pollution method.
EcoAid has been supplying NSW Health since 2006. During the onslaught of the pandemic in April last year, EcoAid provided 5 million pieces of personal protective equipment to NSW Health over three months when the State’s international supply chain was cut off. EcoAid remains committed to supporting State Health Departments across the country to reduce plastic waste while fighting the COVID-19 global pandemic and we look forward to seeing the return of safety and economic resilience as a result of Australia’s vaccination roll-out plan.
