Prescription For Change – Unused & Expired Medicine Take Back Initiative

Project Info

Project Description

Prescription for Change is an initiative started to address the fast growing & harmful stream of waste – unused & expired medication. With increasing use of medication due to current lifestyles and environmental pollution, the proper management of the waste generated is of prime importance. Currently a majority (>80%) of the citizens dispose their expired & unused medication along with dry waste. This ends up in the landfill along with other waste, resulting in soil, water and air contamination.

Through this initiative, we ensure that unused & expired medication is responsibly segregated, collected and disposed. The initiative is being implemented in Bengaluru, India, by two non-profit organisations – Environmental Synergies in Development (ENSYDE) in partnership with Hasiru Dala Innovations.
