In 100% of its products, Eurofarma uses secondary packages (cartridges) to guide consumers on how to direct the residues which had no direct contact with the medicinal product (package inserts and cartridges). The goal is to encourage consumers to separate the trash and send for recycling.


Eurofarma also provides boxes in its outpatient clinics, so that employees can discard medicine packages.
A pioneering partnership with Grupo Pão de Açúcar aims to encourage the proper disposal of medications by consumers, through collectors around the drugstores inside the Group facilities in São Paulo, in the cities of Araraquara, Piracicaba, São Caetano do Sul (SP) and Volta Redonda (RJ). The action collects and gives adequate allocation for primary packaging (those who had direct contact with the chemical compound), expired medications and sharpened materials, such as needles and ampoules. In five years of the project, about 20 tons of packages have been collected.

The project is part of the commitment of Pão de Açúcar in educating customers on the proper use and proper disposal of products and food, and since its deployment has raised about 1.3 tons of residues considered harmful to the environment because they had direct contact with chemicals (drugs).
