We are working with patients to try and switch use from Metered Dose Inhalers to Dry Powder Inhalers, where this is appropriate. Metered Dose Inhalers have a far greater impact on the environment than a Dry Powder Inhaler, as the image below illustrates.

You can find out more about green (Dry Powder) Inhalers - here.


For more information on the different types of inhalers and their environmental impact - have a look at our inhaler carbon footprint comparison tool
