The Barco One sustainable brand of scrubs incorporates five recycled plastic bottles into the fabric of each garment, while the Skechers by Barco brand of scrubs incorporates seven recycled plastic bottles into the fabric of each garment.
In 2016, Barco launched the Barco One sustainable brand of scrubs featuring anti-static and temperature-regulating properties, and Barco's Quick-Shed technology, which releases animal hair quickly from the surface of the fabric, said the company in a press release.
Research shows that every day, more than one million plastic bottles are sold per minute around the world. Worse yet, studies also show that approximately 91 per cent of plastic is still not recycled and ends up in the ocean instead.
"Healthcare professionals have shown a growing preference for brands that make a difference and are aligned with their values, with sustainability being at the top of the list," said Ron Wagenseil, president and CEO of Barco Uniforms. "Barco's commitment to improving its sustainable practices is a natural extension of our mission to lead with purposeful innovation. It's clear that our customers agree, as both Barco One and Skechers by Barco have shown dynamic and sustained sales growth year-over-year."
