A Sustainable Future of Prescription Medication

Philip Anderson Payne 

How can we eliminate single-use plastics in prescription medication?

Envisioned through the non-dominant perspective of the user, this thesis examines prescription medication packaging & distribution and searches for more sustainable and accessible solutions. It questions how we currently take medication, where we get it from, and the necessity of a physical pharmacy.

It focuses on generations Y & Z, what their priorities and needs are, and what they would want from their pharmacy service. This study aims to help users prepare for a possible future by providing potential directions to a world without single-use plastics.
