Choose Plastic Neutral with Medicine Box Wellness
100% Organic Solutions To Life’s Daily Difficulties
“Nature is one of Medicine Box’s Seven Pillars of Wellness - perhaps the most important one of all. We rely on nature to heal us, so it’s up to us humans to return the favor. rePurpose Global’s mission and activity worldwide is an important acknowledgment of humanity’s interdependence with nature and that WE are all stewards of the earth”
How It Works
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.
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.
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
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.
