Our values

Packaging Sustainability

To demonstrate its commitment to packaging sustainability, Care Pharmaceuticals signed the Australian Packaging Covenant in 2017. As a member of the Australian Packaging Covenant Organisation (APCO), Care is committed to further reducing our environmental footprint by reviewing new and existing packaging against the APCO Sustainable Packaging Guidelines. Care is in the process of developing a Packaging Sustainability Strategy that includes targets such as reducing packaging weight where possible, exploring opportunities for increased recovery of packaging, and increasing use of recycled and renewable materials.

To minimise waste that goes to Landfill, Care encourages its consumers to dispose of packaging thoughtfully. Any packaging made from cardboard or paper (such as FESS nasal spray boxes, Hydralyte ice block boxes and product information leaflets) can be placed in your nearest recycling bin.

Products that come in an aerosol can, such as FESS Nasal & Sinus Mist, can be recycled through most recycling systems (check with your local Council if you are unsure). Empty plastic containers such as Hydralyte effervescent tubes and the Hydralyte mixing cup contained in the Hydralyte 10s Sachets product, can also be disposed of in the plastic recycling bin.
