Please, tell us a little about Kitt Medical
My name is Zak and I have lived with a severe allergy to nuts for my entire life. Anyone can develop an allergy to anything at any time in their lives – in fact, 20% of serious anaphylaxis incidents in UK schools occur in children with no prior history of allergies. And looking directly at schools, there’s an estimated 1-2 children with allergies in every classroom across the UK. I’ve grown up around the horror stories of allergy deaths in the news, and have personally experienced forgetting my adrenaline pens, suffering allergy anxiety, and exclusion too often. That’s why I created our now award-winning ‘Anaphylaxis Kitt’ service, providing schools and organisations with a wall-mounted emergency anaphylaxis kit
It also comes with a dependable supply of adrenaline pens, unlimited access to online CPD-accredited anaphylaxis training, and more – all in one convenient yearly subscription. It’s just like a defibrillator but for allergies.
Why is sustainability important to Kitt Medical?
As a mission-driven founder, I find it my responsibility to leave this place better than I found it – and that of course includes the air we breathe, the ground we walk on, the water we drink, and so on. I definitely have eco-anxiety so I will try and do anything I can do to be more sustainable in my life and business.
Why did Kitt Medical decide to collaborate with Play It Green?
I saw a fellow start-up talking about Play it Green and Richard on LinkedIn and decided it was time we did our bit as a company. I loved how simple it was to make a positive impact, and how wonderfully friendly and passionate the founder, Richard is.
What does the future hold for Kitt Medical?
Our end goal is for our Anaphylaxis Kitts to be every defibrillator’s next-door neighbour. We want to create a new standard for allergy care so that anywhere you go, emergency medications and training to treat severe allergic reactions are accessible.

“Joining Play It Green was a no-brainer. They make it easy for us to learn about sustainability and provide the tools to help us lower Kitt Medical’s footprint. Planting trees and giving to a good cause not only does good, it feels good. We are excited to be part of a community of like-minded businesses wanting to do better”.
Richard Dickson, Founder, Play It Green
“My eldest son, Joe, is badly allergic to Brazil nuts and we have had a couple of bad scares, so when I heard what Zak was doing at Kitt Medical, I was interested to speak with him. Zak and I share a lot of values, so I was happy in so many ways when he chose to join the Play It Green community. We also work with schools so there will be plenty of life-saving collaborations to be made!“
