One of the frustrations with our plastic containers is that, for the most part, can’t be used over again. We use a lot of natural resources (namely oil) not to actually make a product but to make something that a product is stored in. We then toss that container away and it ends up in a landfill.
And that brings us to plastic pill bottles. Most of us have a prescription to something, and when we are done, we throw the bottles away. The thing is, those bottles are, unlike plastic bags and plastic water bottles, quite durable and can be used many times over.
