Every year in Canada, more than 250 million prescriptions are dispensed in various packaging that generates a substantial amount of waste. With increasing customer concern about the environment and the expectation of concrete actions to be taken by businesses, EcoloPharm can help pharmacists who want to reduce their environmental footprint and combat the plastic waste epidemic.
Nearly 3,500 pharmacies across Canada are EcoloPharm partners and using our eco-friendly solutions.

EcoloPharm is a partner of choice for hospitals, retirement homes and LTCF’s that want to minimize their environmental impact.
At a time when mounting studies show a very strong link between the health of the environment and that of patients, it is essential for health institutions to take concrete action to reduce waste and limit the overall use of natural resources.
The distribution of medication causes an enormous amount of plastic waste in hospitals and LTCF’s each year. The health sector in Quebec produces approximately 98,000 tons of waste per year that includes 17,000 tons of biomedical waste requiring special disposal procedures with an annual cost of $14.2 million.
Budget cuts in the healthcare system might initially present an obstacle for administration wishing to prioritize and implement environmental practices and policies. However, several organizations have embarked in the adoption of environmentally sound practices resulting in a significant reduction in waste materials and a sharp increase in the rate of recyclability.
Veterinarians play the role of guardians between human and animal health and veterinary clinics have a vital role in protecting community health.
Veterinary clinics share a strong interest in using eco-friendly products for single-use or limited-life purposes and several eco-responsible practices provide substantial savings that can be considered "ecological rebates."
EcoloPharm packaging solutions reduce environmental impact at the source and furthermore enable businesses to save time, space and money.
The legalization of marijuana and the exponential growth of production in the development of the cannabis industry has raised many key issues related to overpackaging. The plastic waste from cannabis products is projected to reach 6,000 tons by 2020 and is foreseen to increase by tenfold in the coming years.
The regulations for the overpackaging of cannabis products seem redundant and damaging to the environment. While efforts have focused primarily on protecting the public and eliminating the black market, there are environmentally friendly alternatives that can easily meet the growing needs of the cannabis industry.
EcoloPharm has ecodesigned containers that are environmentally friendly and meet all Health Canada standards for the distribution of cannabis products.
