Remedy’s Sustainable Choice

REMEDY’S SUSTAINABLE CHOICE

Previously we shared our 5 core beliefs that Remedy was founded on. One of these is that Sustainability is Our Responsibility. This really has two meanings for us at Remedy. The first is that we are really wanting to empower each and everyone we encounter with sustainable HEALTH. Meaning that instead of quick fixes that may make you feel better in the moment, we want to educate and help you commit to choices that sustain your health over the long-term. The second part of this core belief is our commitment to environmentally sustainable practices for our EARTH

More than anytime before we are acutely feeling the burden to protect our earth and re-examine how each choice we make through the day impacts our environment. We hope you feel the same way. We have gone out of our way to make sure that you can feel good about your CHOICE to shop at Remedy. Here are a few of the ways we are committing to move the pharmacy experience to a greener one:

  1. Biodegradable prescription vials: Our vials completely degrade in 3 years. Here is a little known fact - even if you recycle your prescription vials, they will end up in a landfill. Long after you and I are gone, your vials will still be sitting in that landfill. Remedy vials on the other hand, are made from a special plastic, that while still meeting all of the FDA and USP regulations for prescription packaging, will be completely degraded into organic matter within 3 years! 

  2. Curated brands with similar ethos: We have spent A LOT of time selecting the products you will find at Remedy. We have taken great pains to make sure that when possible we are selecting brands that have similar commitments to environmentally friendly practices, such as:

    • Organic ingredients, free of pesticides and harmful chemicals

    • Packaging with recycled materials

    • Sustainably sourced botanicals such as regional wild-crafting techniques or confirmed sustainable farming practices

  3. Shopping Local. To be fair this isn’t something that Remedy is really doing, but it’s something you are doing! Shopping local is great for so many reasons and one is that is reduces the environmental impact of the products you buy by reducing the overall carbon footprint of transporting these goods. When you buy goods that are sourced locally, less fuel and carbon is produced to get those products to you. Also when stores buy in bulk versus individuals buying online, it saves packaging and transport burden. At Remedy we love to stock local and regional brands, like Uqora, COOLA, Josh Rosebrook and more! We are still on the search to bring you more local favorites! 

There is always room for improvement and we are committed to continually look for new ways and new products to reduce our environmental impact. Thank you for your support and your decision to support brands that are trying to make a difference. We are in this together!
