Is your closet, like mine, overrun by empty prescription pill bottles that you hate to throw away? ChronicBabe would like to take them off your hands for an art project. They need orange or yellow prescription bottles, not bottles from vitamins or supplements. If you want to leave the labels on, you can cross out any personal information. Otherwise, you can peel the labels off and a Babe will put new labels on them.
If you send 10 or more bottles, you’ll get a $5 Amazon gift certificate. You can make the gift go further by using a padded envelope to mail the bottles. It’s less expensive than a box and should be light enough to drop in a mailbox.
Many homeless shelters will accept vitamin and other pill bottles. They are filled with shampoo and soap and given out to people who need them. Call some local shelters to find a donation spot. Some other suggestions ways to keep the plethora of bottles out of the landfill include storing:
- Paperclips or change
- Household odds and ends (nuts, bolts, etc.)
- Salt, sugar, pepper, etc. for camping
- Bulk spices
- Pills to keep with you, like antacids or OTC painkillers
- Earplugs when traveling
