Please see the bottom for a 2022 update
Here is our story:
came into existence after I was unable to find a good source for medical
supplies that weren’t destructive to our communities and planet (via the
materials that made them up, their manufacturing processes, or both). As a
physician, I was increasingly appalled at the plastic and paper waste generated
after even one medical exam. This was basically toxic waste, and was headed
directly for landfill or ocean gyre. Because human beings do not live in a
vacuum, I wanted to see healthcare extend beyond the patient’s body/mind and
into his/her environment. I wanted to “go green,” and when I couldn’t find a
reliable source for green medical and office supplies, I created one.
goal of ecoMedSupply is to create a quick and easy resource for green-minded
healthcare professionals. Our online catalog is full of many
eco-friendly products that you probably use every day. When you visit
ecoMedSupply you will find all the greenest products that are available and we
will continuously add new products as they become available.
Some changes here at ecoMedSupply! I will be taking a step back to let my new associate of the past year, Bernie Drouillard, take over the business. I will continue to help and advise him, as needed. Bernie has lots of energy and enthusiasm and shares the core mission of ecoMedSupply.
Progress in greening healthcare has been slow over the 11 years since I started ecoMedSupply and I am thankful for the efforts you all have made to reduce the use of plastic, virgin wood paper and chemicals. I will continue to help Bernie search for new and better products and hopefully expand the number of providers taking positive steps toward a better world.
I wish a happy, healthy and safe year to all!
