Creation Care Tip of the Week

Check Cabinets for Expired Medicine and Properly Dispose of Them

Avoid flushing medicines and other dangerous chemicals in the toilet or washing them down the sink. Instead, find your local med disposal location and take them there. This will help keep water clean and drug-free for other people drink and animals and plants to live in and consume. ​
