The healthcare industry, especially in pharmaceuticals, generates a significant amount of global CO2 emissions. An example of the industry’s impact is through the billions of single-use, amber vials that stock the shelves of every pharmacy across the United States.
Parcel Health, a women-founded sustainable medication packaging startup located in Pittsburgh, PA, has set its eye on minimizing pharmaceutical packaging waste, starting with its first product, a pill bottle replacement called the Phill Box™. The system, which is best suited for oral solid doses, is designed to be functional while also being recyclable, compostable, water-resistant, and an easy-to-use alternative to traditional packaging.
Parcel Health has a short and robust supply chain contained within the U.S. that starts with sustainable paper, a manufacturing partner, and an assembly and fulfillment center in Pittsburgh.
