How It Works

1. Measure

Medicine Box Wellness donates a percentage of every product purchase to fund the collection of 1800 lbs of low-value PP plastic waste from oceans and landfills every year.

2. Compensate

Low-value plastic is collected, processed, and reused by TakaTaka Solutions - a waste management service in Kenya that employs and empowers waste pickers to tackle plastic waste.

3. Reduce

Medicine Box Wellness will work with rePurpose Global to reduce the future use of virgin plastics in their products and build a more circular business and delivery model for their company.

Medicine Box Wellness' Sustainability Journey

Sustainable Sourcing

Preservation of nature and water is in the cultural DNA of our Lake Tahoe home. Throwaway packaging distresses us, which is why we use recyclable/compostable packaging. rePurpose Global shares our commitment to environmental stewardship. Their work re-establishes our species’ connection to nature; a connection that many individual humans have lost.

An Ongoing Journey

For Medicine Box, individual health depends on environmental health. Through our Wellness Muse affiliates and our online community, we shall initiate community networks that assign environmental “prescriptions” to our consumers. And we’ll continue listening to Nature. After all, she’s the boss.

The Plastic Neutral Shift

True to its mission of unifying nature and wellness, Medicine Box Wellness has gone Plastic Neutral. By doing this, the company is helping finance the removal of 1LB of plastic for every product they sell and supporting waste workers to fight plastic pollution in their own communities.
