Why we love it
Soft and free from chemicals that irritate the skin, these bandages are a godsend for sensitive skin types and for everyone in general. Free of any color dyes, this bandage is the natural color of bamboo fibers themselves. Whether you're a proud klutz or an absolute daredevil of a free climber, you'll want to take these with you. But the best part is that they're compostable in your compost bin at home.
How it does good
Upgrading the way we heal, the natural way
Did you know that 1 in 4 people have allergic reactions to common bandaids? Or that traditional methods of wound care head straight to landfill? PATCH is breaking the cycle of the existing pharma market, often associated with chemicals and adverse effects, with their sustainable bamboo strips—a natural approach to wound care. Made with 100% organic bamboo fiber, one of the fastest growing, renewable resources on the planet, their bandages provide a better solution that doesn’t cost the earth. Committed to healing the planet and everyone in it, they're working with initiatives like Young Veterans Missions to provide regions in hardship with medical resources. Plus, their biodegradeable bandages and packaging can be planted right back into the soil.
responsible sourcingPATCH does the most to minimize their impact on the environment and that commitment led them to bamboo. One of the fastest growing, renewable resources on the planet, bamboo absorbs carbon dioxide and releases 35% more oxygen into the atmosphere than an equivalent number of hardwood trees. The plant doesn’t die out after being harvested either, meaning it doesn’t contribute to deforestation. And PATCH sources and grows their bamboo in its homeland of China without the use of pesticides, chemical fertilizers, and irrigation.
low carbon footprintMaker of the world’s first and only zero waste wound care product, PATCH has done extensive testing with composting their bandages, removed all plastic tape from their supply chain, and offset corporate travel by planting trees. So far, they’ve planted over 45,300 trees that contribute to regenerative farming and agriculture.
supporting key causesPATCH pours the same amount of support into local communities as they do with the planet. Through the Young Veterans Missions team and Retail Global, they provide people in East Timor and Haiti with their sustainable bandages and other medical resources. They’re also collaborating with initiatives like Sea Shepherd to protect marine life and our oceans.
