Cleaning Out the Medicine Cabinet? Think of the Environment!

Our world is a precious, God-given gift.  Thinking (and being) green when we clean out fhe medicine cabinet is one of the ways that we who live with chronic pain and illness can participate in environmentally conscious activities.  How?  By disposing of old or expired medications through recycling and/or collection programs sponsored by local governments, pharmacies, hospitals, or other venues.  This ensures that old/expired meds will be responsibly handled and isolated from precious water and land resources.You can find out about available programs in your community by contacting your local health department, pharmacy,  or hospital.  Making the effort to take expired meds to a drop-off is a wonderful way to join others in protecting our environment – and to helping us feel we’re not so isolated, too!

Blessings for the day,

Maureen
