Now you have more time to spend on things that actually help grow your business, while also saving money and conserving natural resources.

Oh, and by the way, your clients and staff will love them!


Great Reasons To Switch To EcoPro

There are so many awesome reasons to switch to EcoPro besides patient comfort, staff convenience, and a clean, modern appearance.  Additional things to consider include:

For Cloth Pillowcases

Laundering cloth pillowcases wastes time, money, water and electricity. Here are some factors to consider if you currently use cloth pillowcases in your business:

Healthcare spends millions of dollars laundering cloth pillowcases annually.  As an example, 1 full time physical therapist's laundry can cost a business over $1000 year.  These costs are seen in related healthcare fields where cloth pillow cases are changed between clients.

Healthcare wastes millions of gallons of water laundering cloth pillow cases annually.   As an example, 1 full time physical therapist's laundry wastes over 5200 gallons of water annually on pillow cases alone.


Clinic staff, owners or managers, can spend 100 hours each year on just a single physical therapist's laundry.  Amazingly, it requires 65 hours per PT to launder pillow cases annually.

Healthcare wastes millions of KwH of electricity annually just doing pillow case laundry.  As an example, it can take over 700 KwH of electricity to launder a single physical therapist's pillowcases each year.

For Paper Pillow Covers

Paper pillow covers generate thousands of tons of paper waste annually while also destroying forests and wasting money. Here are 2 things to consider if you currently use paper pillow covers in your practice:

By far, the most expensive and wasteful option for healthcare are Paper pillow covers!  As an example, 1 physical therapist's paper pillow covers can cost over $3000 per year.

Paper pillow covers = Forests.   As an example, 1 full time physical therapist will use the equivalent of 2 trees per year.


2 Full-Time PT's using 4 EcoPro Pillow Covers = $239.80/5 years (expected lifespan)

All calculations based on seeing 15 patients per day using 2 pillows per patient.  Numbers may vary by clinic, business model and practitioner so actual savings will vary!

Quickstart Guide:

  1. Insert a standard (16-20oz) pillow into the pillow cover and zip it closed.
  2. Leave the optional hanging loop out if hanging when not in use, or tuck it inside.
  3. Place the pillow on your treatment table.
  4. Spray and wipe off the pillow cover with disinfectant between clients and while cleaning your table.
  5. Allow pillow surface to dry per your cleaning products directions.
Helpful hints:
  • To improve airflow if necessary, leave the zipper closure open approximately 2" to allow for additional air movement.
  • For clients with extreme kyphosis, options include folding pillow covers in half, tilting up the head piece of the table, stacking multiple "thinner" pillows or EcoPro MINI pillows.
  • To indicate whether a pillow cover has been cleaned, turn "dirty" pillows perpendicular to the table.
  • Use 16-20 ounce foam pillows for improved stacking and foldability.

“At OPPT, we love our new pillow covers! Not only do we have less laundry, we do not have to spend time changing pillowcases either. The EcoPro pillow covers make our clinic look so much neater.”
