Our mission is to eliminate single-use plastic in medicine.

194B+

plastic medicine bottles are produced every year.1

Water Mobile

90%

of them end up in our oceans, landfills and air supply, eventually breaking down into microplastics.2

Scientists estimate that we ingest anywhere from dozens to more than 100,000 microplastic particles each day.3

That adds up to about 1 credit card size of plastic every week.
