About Our Products
Why buy from Eco Ninjas ?
We are passionate about the improvements which sustainable name and role theatre hats can provide. We have spent the past 3 years exploring alternative ways to personalise theatre hats and we have conducted research, case studies and a microbiology study so we can provide as much evidence as possible to help NHS and private hospitals to implement sustainable alternatives.
We have been working with experts at Birmingham University, Innovate UK, and TWI at Cambridge on our new range of detachable theatre badge hats which are a fantastic alternative to bespoke embroidered caps.
Our manufacturing partners are Northumbria Healthcare Manufacturing and Innovation Hub, a wholly owned subsidiary of the NHS trust. The Northumbria manufacturing hub manufacture all our hats and they are ISO 9001:2015, 14001:2015 and 45001:2018 certified which demonstrates their commitment to quality management, environmental management and occupational health and safety.
All our products including the name badges are manufactured in the UK.
We don’t just sell our products into hospitals; we spend time in theatres with staff listening to their feedback and working towards continually improving our products also.
Bulk orders & personalisation
Our embroidered hat orders start from 50 hats. As they are personalised/bespoke, we need to be set up on your system as a new suppler and a PO raised. The embroidery thread colour is white on dark coloured hats and navy blue on lighter colour hats.
Our fabric is polycotton, just like scrubs which is lightweight (4oz) and we have 13 colours to choose from.
We make all our hats to order by hand, from cutting the fabric to embroidering the hat and then sewing to make the complete and final product. Orders will take 2-3 weeks to complete. We can also embroider company logos.

To ensure maximum comfort for our customers, we have internal lining on the inside of all our hats to stop the ‘fuzz’ of the embroidery irritating the forehead and to prevent the internal aspect of the press studs from contacting the skin.
Latex-free products and garments are advised in healthcare due to the prevalence of latex allergies among both patients and healthcare workers. Latex is a natural rubber material derived from the sap of the rubber tree, and it is commonly used in medical gloves, catheters, bandages, and other medical products.
Some individuals develop allergic reactions to latex, which can range from mild skin irritation to severe and potentially life-threatening anaphylaxis. Healthcare workers who frequently use latex gloves are at a higher risk of developing latex allergies due to repeated exposure. To prevent allergic reactions and ensure the safety of patients and healthcare workers, many healthcare facilities have transitioned to latex-free products. This helps to minimize the risk of allergic reactions and ensures that individuals with latex allergies can receive medical care without encountering potentially harmful substances.
The composition of our elastic is 77% Polyester and 23% Elastine. Latex free elastic is equally durable to rubber elastic and will maintain its stretch retention. Latex free elastic in all our products is a necessity and also ties in with our environmental aim in reducing the carbon footprint as fewer carcinogens are used in the manufacturing process.
