#Goals: Drug Takeback Day Will Help Protect Environment, Pets, and Kids

April 29, 2016Posted by Linda Hernandez

If you’re not familiar with Drug Takeback Day, it’s a movement run by the Department of Justice to collect unused prescription drugs in a safe way, keeping them out of the hands of teenagers who could potentially become “addicted” or use them as a gateway drug. When you toss these drugs in the trash, your pets and small children can get to them, too, which is also a terrifying prospect. What may be most surprising, though, is how disposing of these drugs can be harmful to the environment.

Check out our video to find out how the day designed to help prevent drug overdoses in children has become a tool for so much more.
