22 Apr Medication “Take-Back” Program from Live Oak Pharmacy
Visit Live Oak Pharmacy on Earth Day, April 22nd – 5% of all proceeds benefit Austin Earth Day.
Thursday April 22nd marks the 40th Anniversary of Earth Day and Live Oak Pharmacy is proud to offer 4 ways to join us in giving back to our community.
Medication “Take-Back” Program
Tossing medications and supplements in the trash or down the drain pollutes our waterways and contaminates landfills. We’re thrilled to partner with the National Community Pharmacists Association to announce Austin’s first continuous Medication “Take-Back” program! When you stop into Live Oak Pharmacy, bring in your expired or unused prescriptions (we are unable to accept controlled substances), over-the-counter medications or supplements to our pharmacy, we’ll provide you with a Medication “Take-Back” form or click here to download one and we’ll make sure they’re disposed of in an eco-friendly way that’s good for the environment. And that’s great for us all.
Austin Earth Day
Retail therapy is great . . . It’s even better when it benefits a great cause! Live Oak Pharmacy is one of more than 75 Austin businesses who are donating 5% of all sales and services to Austin Earth Day. For a full list of all the participating businesses click here.
Each and every time you bring a reusable bag to Live Oak Pharmacy we’ll donate 10 cents to Vitamin Angels. Vitamin Angels is a non-profit organization that helps to reduces child mortality worldwide by connecting essential nutrients, especially vitamin A, with infants and children under five. Essential nutrients enable young immune systems to fight infectious diseases, helping children attain good health and the opportunity to lead meaningful and productive lives. So bring in your reusable bag each time you shop at Live Oak Pharmacy.
Umlauf Garden Party
Wrap up the day of good deeds with Austin’s very own Umlauf Sculpture Garden & Museum’s 12th Annual Garden Party. Twice voted Austin’s Best Outdoor Fundraiser, the Garden Party celebrates the art of sculpture and the work of 20th century American sculptor, Charles Umlauf. Proceeds from the party are dedicated to the preservation of the Umlauf Sculpture Garden & Museum and help underwrite the museum’s award-winning education programs. This Earth Day friendly event features over 20 of Austin’s fine restaurants serving delectable samplings of their cuisine, paired with complementing wines generously provided by Twin Liquors. Live Oak Pharmacy is honored to be an in-kind donor for this year’s Garden Party! Tickets are still available and can be purchased online by clicking here.
