WI P2D2 (WI Prescription Pill & Drug Disposal)
Organized by: Jordyn Schara
Event Name: Keep Supporting CGI U Commitments
AMOUNT RAISED IN PREVIOUS ROUND: $450
What would you do if you discovered that your drinking water contained antibiotics, heart medications, psychiatric drugs, and hormones from birth control pills? CGI University commitment-maker Jordyn discovered that improper disposal of medicines contaminates groundwater and causes defects in wildlife and human cells. Also, if left unsecured at home, these drugs can contribute to the latest drug epidemic, prescription drug abuse. In response, Jordyn created WI P2D2 (WI Prescription Pill and Drug Disposal) at the age of 14. The award-wining program has already helped collect over 1 million pounds of drugs.
