Commitment to Sustainability

Closed Loop / Net Zero

With the support of our partners at Precision Fabrics Group, Merrow introduced the first line of Net Zero emission, closed-loop, scaled production of medical PPE and consumer products.

A revolutionary breakthrough in eco-friendly PPE and medical apparel products that offers a sustainable solution excessive waste entering into American landfills.


Our commitment to climate action and decarbonization, inspired us to introduce a closed-loop system for manufacturing of essential medical products in the United States.


This scaled production system converts soda bottles into fully sustainable fibers that then are woven into the fabrics inside every Net Zero medical apparel and PPE product. The energy used to manufacture products is powered by solar panels on the roof of the Merrow Building, which is often why our eco program is affectionately referred to as the ‘sun beams and soda bottles’ program.


While we understand that there will always be a need for disposable gowns, above all else we are proud to have incorporated an entirely closed loop system that eliminates harmful carbon emissions to our atmosphere. After use, every Net Zero product can be recycled and for every eco gown you help save to 180 lbs of waste from entering our landfills.

Closed-loop means that all Net Zero medical apparel products and PPE are made entirely from recycled materials such as bottles, caps, plastics and light weight metals like aluminum. These materials are manufactured in to durable woven that are then made into the medical apparel represented on this website. From birth until expiration our Net Zero product line drastically reduces our carbon footprint by keeping PPE and medical apparel out of landfills

Annually, it is estimated that 1.5 billion single use PPE gowns are worn and disposed of in the US alone.


This equates to 1.8 million cubic meters per year, or nearly two empire state buildings!

"We are introducing sustainability in the supply chain for healthcare products; with regional US based manufacturing producing 100% recycled and recyclable products. This requires innovation and an aspiration to create enormous environmental impact while improving the security of supply for American healthcare providers."
