Every time a doctor gives us a prescription, we go ahead and buy those pills without thinking twice about the plastic bottles in which they come.
Once thrown, since these small bottles cannot be recycled, they end up in landfills and ocean dumps, impacting the #environment for years.
Here is a company that wants to fix this issue and do good for the planet.
TOM (Tikkun Olam Makers) have introduced the Prescription Paper Pill Bottle, which has the following benefits:
- No plastic. No artificial glue. No toxic dye.
- Meets the FDA requirements for water, light and child resistance.
- It is 100% compostable and biodegradable. So instead of dumping them, these bottles can be composted to enrich soil giving back to the earth.
- The design is open source so anyone and everyone can download it and use it.
There is no reason anymore, for pharmacies to not take care of the patients’ health, while also maintaining the health of the #planet.
