Does sustainability matter when you’re buying online? YES! London Drugs wins 2018 Canada Post eCommerce Social Impact Award

Green eCommerce Social Impact Award londondrugs.com sustainable

With the growth of eCommerce and online ordering, it’s important to know that the company filling your order is working to reduce their environmental impact.

That’s why we were excited and humbled to be recognized nationally by Canada Post for Social Impact in the eCommerce industry.

As part of our award entry, the What’s the Green Deal team prepared a 5-minute video outlining some of our recycling services, processes and successes.

Last year alone,we helped recycle 3,711 pounds of cell phones (32% increase over 2016); 42,155 pounds of fluorescent lights (9% increase over 2016); 122,780 pounds of batteries (5% increase over 2016); and 370,751 pounds of electronics (10,000 pounds more than in 2016). We also diverted 93.9% of waste from landfill.

But we wouldn’t have received this award without the hard work of our employees and the support of customers who care.
