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

  • I just know it's right - but I just never thought of it!
  • I too take many tablets on a daily basis. as does my brother in law. Too much waste. why couldn't they stick to putting them in bottles like they used to. so much more recyclable.
  • I use that many tablets and have always hated the blister packs. Surely there‚Äôs a more eco friendly way.
