Snugs PPE products are made from medical grade silicone, the sustainable material used to make Snugs is derived from silica, a naturally occurring mineral. The global silica market size was valued at USD 12.8 billion in 2020 and is expected to expand at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 5.7% from 2021 to 2028.
In contrast, single use foam ear plugs are made from petroleum-based materials, which are non-biodegradable and can take hundreds of years to decompose in landfills. Additionally, the production of foam ear plugs generates harmful emissions that contribute to climate change. The global greenhouse gas emissions from the manufacturing sector were estimated to be 14.5 billion metric tons in 2020.
Snugs Custom-Fit earplugs present a more sustainable alternative to foam ear plugs. Medical grade silicone is a renewable resource and is non-toxic and hypoallergenic, making it an ideal choice for people with sensitive skin. Moreover, medical grade silicone earplugs do not produce harmful emissions, and they can be reused thousands of times, reducing their environmental footprint.
In conclusion, medical grade silicone is a more sustainable material than foam ear plugs. Medical grade silicone is made from a renewable resource, it is non-toxic and hypoallergenic, and it does not produce harmful emissions.
