We're Celebrating Hospital Savings By Donating To Charity


Our piggy bank is breaking open to pass our savings on to worthy charities.

To celebrate our fifth anniversary, we're challenging hospitals to save $50 Million. And if they do, we'll donate $50,000 to charity.

Our newest program - which we're calling 50 For 50 - is no small challenge. But neither is tackling the excess inventory problem in healthcare. And we took that on without a moment's hesitation. 

If we've said it once, we've said it... more than once. (You're welcome to click around the site for a few hours and count exactly how many times.) Hospitals in the US waste $5 Billion annually just by throwing away medical and surgical supplies that have expired. 

It doesn't have to be that way. We specifically designed our Z5 Reallocate solution to tackle this by identifying and - obviously - reallocating excess before it expires. It's helped hospital systems across the country save millions of dollars from being thrown away over the past five years. 

But now we're stepping it up. We want to see our hospital partners old and new save $50 Million in 2020. To encourage them along the way, we're donating $5,000 to a charity at every $5 Million savings milestone. 

And that's where we want to hear from you. 

If you have a 501(c)(3) that's close to your heart, please submit it at Z5Inventory.com/50for50. We'll be drawing from the list of submissions every time we're cutting a $5,000 check. 

We want to know what matters to you. Because we want you to join us in the belief that it's not enough to do good -- you have to do better.
