Did you know that some greener inhalers are over 20 times better for the planet than other kinds of inhalers? By switching to a greener inhaler, you can reduce your carbon footprint! Inquire with your healthcare provider if a greener option is suitable for you at your next visit. You can always switch back if it doesn’t work for you.
Proper disposal of old inhalers is also crucial. You can safely dispose of your used inhaler at your local pharmacy. To find a pharmacy near you, use the NHS pharmacy finder.
