The Classic Prescription Bottle Just Got a Compostable Redesign

Key Points

  • “Those orange medication bottles you’re familiar with are generally made out of plastic—polypropylene or #5 plastic, specifically. While technically recyclable, it’s actually very rare that it gets recycled.”
  • “To solve the problem, designers at Saatchi & Saatchi Wellness, a branding agency that focuses on the health sector, partnered with Israeli social design collective Tikkun Olam Makers (TOM) to design an alternative: a compostable, biodegradable pill bottle made out of paper.”
  • “The package template is open source, and the designers hope that other companies download it and use it for free.”
