What one unique aspect of your business will make you succeed over the next year?
Currently there is no know process to remove Pharmaceuticals-OTC Medications-Vitamins from the water supply. Once in the water it is not regulated by any Government agency State or Federal. Currently the amount is increasing every year. Only 7% of the population uses drop off sites because of inconvenience (recent study by EPA). Our product (a bottle that fits in your medicine cabinet) holds 60 pills or liquids and safely, once placed inside neutralizes them and renders them un-useable. Cities are grappling with how to get ahead of this problem and we can place a bottle in every home in a city for less than $1.00. We are a Social Enterprise Company.
