Product Stewardship Institute webinar
In this free webinar, you will learn from experts about the ecological impacts from improper drug disposal and proven solutions to increase public access to safe drug disposal. Speakers will review best practices for establishing a drug take-back program in your community, as well as policy solutions that can significantly increase public access to safe, convenient drug disposal in your state. In particular, the webinar will delve into Extended Producer Responsibility (EPR) policies for pharmaceuticals, which require drug companies to fund and manage take-back programs. Learn about the successful campaign carried out by the Product Stewardship Institute and Citizens Campaign for the Environment to enact a robust pharmaceutical EPR law in New York and how it can be replicated throughout the Great Lakes!
