Greenology Selects SmartSilver™ For Do No Harm Scrubs

Dallas-based Greenology USA LLC has selected SmartSilver™ - a nanoscale silver antimicrobial additive developed by State College, Pa.-based NanoHorizons Inc. - to provide permanent antimicrobial properties to its Do No Harm™ line of medical scrubs. The scrubs contain recycled fibers that are Oeko-Tex®-certified free from hazardous levels of more than 100 substances believed to be harmful to human health.

"In order to live up to the Do No Harm ideal of scrubs that do no harm to the planet, to patients, or to the medical personnel themselves, we needed to select our antimicrobial additive with great care," said Jim Noble, vice president, sales and marketing, Greenology. "SmartSilver met every performance and sustainability criteria we set."

"SmartSilver was developed originally for the medical market," said Dr. James Delattre, vice president, global marketing, NanoHorizons. "Now that SmartSilver additives are available for textile and apparel applications, partnering with Greenology to launch a line of antimicrobial scrubs is the perfect extension."
