SAVE ELECTRICITY:
It takes over 700 KwH of electricity per therapist, per year to launder pillowcases.

SAVE TIME:
Support staff spends 65 hours each year doing one therapists pillowcase laundry.

SAVE MONEY:
It costs well over $1000 per therapist, per year to launder pillowcases.

Paper Pillow Covers

Using paper pillow covers doesn't just fill up your trash can really quickly.  They are also extremely wasteful and harmful to your bottom line. Here are the facts if currently use paper pillow covers in your clinic:

SAVE MONEY:
Paper pillow covers cost over $3000 per therapist, per year.

SAVE TREES:
By eliminating Paper pillow covers, you save 2 trees per therapist, per year.

ECOPRO ANNUAL COST: $47.96

2 F/T PT's using 4 Pillow covers = $239.80/5 years (expected lifespan)

 

**The math:  All calculations are based on the premise that 2 Full time PT's would typically each see 15 patients per day and utilize 2 pillow cases per patient visit.  This may vary buy clinic and business models of course!

How To Use The EcoPro Pillow Cover:

  1. Insert a standard size pillow through the open end of the pillow cover.
  2. While closing the zipper, you will notice an optional hanging loop.
  3. You may leave this loop out, or simply tuck it inside depending on your needs.
  4. Your EcoPro pillow cover is now ready to use.
  5. Between patients, just spray and wipe both sides of the pillow cover when cleaning your treatment tables.
  6. Allow to dry. That's it!

Helpful hints:

  1. To improve airflow even more, leave the zipper closure open approximately 1-2
  2. For extremely kyphotic patients, try folding pillow covers in half, tilting up the head piece on your treatment table or stacking thinner pillows.
  3. To indicate a pillow cover has been cleaned, try turning the pillow perpendicular to the table.
  4. Use pillows with fills less than 20 oz for improved stacking
