Bella the Bride to be Unveiled at MD&M East 2016 by Beacon Converters and DuPont Protection Solutions

New York, NY | 06. 13. 2016

Beacon Converters, Inc. and DuPont Protection Solutions are pleased to announce that Bella the Bride’s completed wedding gown, which is made of discarded DuPont™ Tyvek® for medical packaging, will be unveiled at the Medical Design & Manufacturing (MD&M) East Expo and Conference in New York City, June 14-16, 2016. Bella is a sculpture commissioned by Beacon Converters to bring attention to the recyclability of medical packaging waste. The name Bella was chosen to honor the wife of William Francis Daly, the founder of Beacon Converters.

The train of the gown is covered with more than 400 flowers, which also are made from discarded Tyvek®, a high-density polyethylene (HDPE) material that is a sterile barrier protection used for medical devices and supplies. The flowers on the train, as well as those used for the bouquet, were handcrafted by hundreds of healthcare industry professionals from hospitals, manufacturers and educational institutions across the United States. The gown will be showcased in a special display near the registration area in the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center.
