Reusable PPE cost comparison

Cost: disposable/single-use PPE

Each gown can be used one time. So, for 10,000 uses we will need 10,000 disposable PPE gowns.

  • Need: 10,000 disposable PPE gowns
  • Each gown costs $2.15
  • 10,000 gowns x $2.15 = $21,500
  • $21,500/10,000 uses = $2.15/use

$2.15/use*

Cost: Reusa reusable PPE

Reusa reusable PPE gowns can be washed 100 times each. So, for 10,000 uses we will need only 100 gowns.

  • Need: 100 reusable PPE gowns
  • Each gown costs $38.00
  • 100 gowns x $38.00 = $3,800
  • Cost to wash 1 gown 1 time = $0.50
  • Cost of washes: 100 x 100 x $0.50 = $5,000
  • Cost of gowns and washes: $8,800
  • $8,800/10,000 uses = $0.88/use

$0.88/use*

Reusa reusable PPE: The better value

Reusable PPE is clearly more cost effective than disposable PPE. And, we haven’t figured all the savings in yet. After their usable life as a Level 2 or 3 gown, our gowns can be used in a Level 1 capacity.

This further extends the already clear benefit of Reusa reusable PPE gowns over traditional single-use Level 2 and 3 gowns.
