Provide recycling for medication blister packs

Why is this important?

Hundreds of thousands of medication blister packs currently go to landfill - they are mixed materials (plastic and foil) and therefore not recyclable with household recycling. Walkers did it with crisp packets, now it's the turn of the pharmaceutical giants to take responsibility.

Reasons for signing

  • Single use of any material isn't compatible with all the rhetoric about 'caring for the planet'. Time to find a sustainable alternative for blister packs.
  • A great start, but I would also like to see a return to REUSABLE bottles for pills!
  • Single use plastic is an abomination
