Saving Lives: And also the Environment!

By Dalit Boutboul | Marketing and Communications

Haverim L'Refuah is proud to be awarded the prestigious ISRAEL EARTH PRIZE by Toyota Israel.

The competition was designed to expose groundbreaking solutions and ideas for addressing environmental challenges and climate crisis issues, and to encourage the continued development of green entrepreneurship in Israel out of Toyota's deep commitment to promoting a green and sustainable future in Israel and a better, cleaner world.

Beyond saving many lives, the Haverim L'Refuah organization saves the environment from pollution caused by discarding medicines as waste and ensures that medicines unsuitable for use are disposed of in an environmentally-friendly manner only.

Quote from someone on behalf of Union / the judges: "We are proud of our unique ISRAEL EARTH PRIZE project that shines a spotlight on groundbreaking environmental and sustainability initiatives in Israel and we thank the hundreds of entrepreneurs for their candidacy. Haverim L'Refuah is an exemplary organization that tirelessly works to save lives while also protecting the environment through the use of innovative technologies and creative solutions. We believe that projects like these will inspire many others to act for a better future."

At Haverim L'Refuah, we are committed to maintaining a clean and healthy environment, mainly the ground and water in the State of Israel.

We take our commitment to sustainability seriously, and have integrated an efficient and eco-friendly process to our process:

Every package of medicine donated to our organization goes through rigorous testing. Valid medicine is computerized and then shelved in our pharmacy, for imminent distribution to a person in need. However 80% of the medicines received are not valid. Their paper inserts and cardboard packaging are recycled, and the out-of-date medicines are sent to environmentally-friendly disposal.

With thought to minimizing our environmental footprint, all medicines delivered via our Mobile Pharmacy and ‘Bikes4Meds’ motorbikes are delivered in reusable containers.
