London Drugs is one of the stores I frequent most often because they carry a lot of green products that other stores don’t. And the prices are often a lot better than an organic store. But it’s not just about the shopping – did you know that there are tons of things you can bring back to London Drugs for recycling and safe disposal?
It’s true! Check out their Green Deal sustainability story to see what they accept for recycling, where it goes and what’s done with it. I love that they are so transparent about what they’re doing. For Earth Month, they are stepping it up to encourage you to bring back the pack and do your part!
Here’s the shortlist on what you can bring back to London Drugs:
- Small Appliances
- Packaging from our products including Styrofoam
- Plastic Bags
- Insurance Plastic Folders
- Alkaline Batteries
- Cell Phones
- Rechargeable Batteries
- Compact Fluorescent Bulbs & Fluorescent Light Tubes (up to 48”)
- Disposable Cameras
- Ink jet Cartridges
- Laser Cartridges
- Metal Film Canisters
- Unused & Expired Medications (bring back to the pharmacy)
Take a photo that proves you brought back the pack to London Drugs and share it on Twitter, Facebook, or Instagram with the hashtag #LDgreen2016 – and you’ll be entered to WIN A $100 GIFTCARD!!!
Contest is open to Canadian residents in BC, Alberta, Saskatchewan, and Manitoba (where London Drugs retail locations exist). Deadline for entry is April 30, 2016 at 11:59PM MST. Winner will have 48 hours upon notification to contact me with mailing address for prize redemption, at which point an alternate winner will be chosen.
How cool is this??? Seriously! Bring back anything on that list, snap a photo and share it and you’re entered!
As you can see, I brought back a bunch of inkjet cartridges. Even though there may not be a specific drop box for all of these items, the staff are very helpful and will ensure your stuff gets put in the right place to get recycled.
While you’re bringing your stuff back, why not take advantage of the Earth Month deals as well (sale until Wednesday, April 27, 2016)? I’m stocking up on Cascades recycled paper products like bathroom tissue and facial tissues, Plum Good Organics rice cakes, and Neal Brothers Organic Cheese Puffs (guilty pleasure of mine!!).
What will you bring back to London Drugs this Earth Month?
