Cleaner Oceans and Seas

Here are just a few statistics that support limiting the use of plastics:

fish

According to the UN’s Clean Seas program, litter harms over 600 marine species, including many that are endangered.

waste

It is estimated that there are more than 46,000 pieces of plastic in each square mile of the earth’s oceans.

petroleum

Petroleum production has contributed to a raise in greenhouse gases, as well as ocean temperature, levels, and acidification.

plastic

It takes an average of 450 years for a plastic bottle to breakdown; and the plastic dust that remains will likely never decompose.

XYMOGEN is committed to reducing the amount of plastics used throughout our business, particularly in the packaging of our products. With MedPax alone, we expect to use 3-5 fewer plastic bottles for each patient order. We are doing this for a number of reasons.

  • To limit ocean litter and protecting millions of marine animals.
  • To reduce the use of non-renewable resources.
  • To lessen the amount of non-biodegradable trash on the planet.
  • To curb the absorption of toxins released from broken-down plastic.
