How do pharmacies try to work to make themselves more green?

    One major way that pharmacies can go green is by finding environmentally responsible ways to dispose of unused or unusable medications. Leesburg Pharmacy of Virginia offers to buy back unused medications, and incinerates them so that the burning produces usable energy. They also recycle bottles and prescription vials. Since many pharmacies are full drug stores, they can make a difference by implementing a recycling program in their stores like that of Good Day Pharmacies in Colorado. And since a pharmacy is a building like any other, it can be made to run more efficiently with floors and furniture made of recycled parts, efficient heating systems and innovative lighting. The Ladd Family Pharmacy in Idaho has implemented these strategies to go green.
