It’s never a bad idea to slowly replace common household items with eco-friendly alternatives, so that we’re creating less waste that’s hard to degrade for nature. PATCH is a pack of bandages made from bamboo, that’s much more sustainable than its regular counterpart and works just as well to repair minor cuts & abrasions.
What’s wrong with regular bandaids?
Most common band-aids are made from plastic. The adhesive sheet of a band-aid is usually made from either PVC, polyethylene, or polyurethane, which don’t break down and need to be incinerated so it doesn’t end up in nature.
Also, there are various chemicals used in regular bandages, that might be harmful for your skin if you are allergic to them.
Therefore it’s a simple switch to a low-impact bandaid alternative, such as PATCH.
The PATCH bandages are made from all natural bamboo and contain no plastic or irritating chemicals. Therefore, you can be sure they are suitable for sensitive skin and friendly for the environment. The PATCH bandages break down fully in garden soil in a few weeks time, unlike regular bandaids.
The adhesive on PATCH is mineral-based and gently attaches to your skin without irritation or pain.
Additionally, the PATCH bandaids are vegan-friendly and ethically produced, so it’s one less product in your house to worry about.
