Medicine Bottles for Malawi
The Malawi Project is a health-focused non-profit organization that will send your used plastic prescription pill bottles to Malawi, where pharmacies and hospitals use only torn pieces of paper to wrap the medicine in or just hand the pills out loosely.
I know I don't like throwing away empty medicine bottles, and they can't be re-used in our country, so I was happy to learn that I could help out a country in need and not add to our landfills.
There will be a box for the bottles next to the Food Shelf box. If possible, please remove the labels by putting them in boiling water. If that's not possible, we will still accept them.
By giving your old prescription bottles, you will be helping families in a third world country to keep their medicines clean, safe, and out of reach of small children.
