Waste To Wealth: An Initiative For A Healthier Environment #WorldEnvironmentDay

By Dr. Nikita Toshi +2 more

As India’s leading consumer healthcare super app (providing online pharmacy, OTC, teleconsultation and diagnostics services)1 we have evolved from being just a medicine providing platform to a wellness partner by building a sustainable healthcare ecosystem. The ‘Waste to Wealth’ initiative is based on the belief of taking it easy on our environment. After all, every day should be an environment day. In doing so, we strive to help and protect it and make our society a greener and better place to live in. 

Tons of medicine cartons are being generated as waste, which is usually sent to scrap dealers. Through this initiative, we recycle the waste that is generated into something useful. This ensures that we don’t just reduce waste but also get two extra products – dunnage, to fill the gaps in the boxes and bubble wrap, which provides cushioning to packed medicines. Therefore, it eliminates the need for new and fresh plastic bubble wraps. We believe in utilising the product to its optimum potential. 

As a result of this initiative, we have managed to reduce the waste that is given to the scrap vendors. By recycling waste, we are turning this waste into wealth for the environment and us. The shredded cartons are then used for packaging goods, thus reducing our carbon footprint. In addition to this, we have also started using e-vehicles for our operations to help reduce emissions and levels of pollution.

This initiative only brings us closer to our vision of simplifying healthcare and impacting lives. It’s time to make a difference and disrupt the world for a sustainable tomorrow. So, our environment can also ‘Take It Easy’, while selflessly making it easier for us. 

Here’s to a healthier environment,
Team PharmEasy
