In six steps, people can dispose of solid or liquid medicines. Consumers place unwanted medicine into a 32oz or 17oz bottle. Next they add the powder pack into the bottle.
After adding water and shaking the bottle's contents, the unwanted medication is ready to be disposed of. The product is compliant with the Environmental Protection Agency's recommendations for drug disposal.
The company first tested its product at Hospice of southern West Virginia in Beckley. Keaton said the feedback has been phenomenal. Since initial testing, the company engaged with community collations, solid waste authorities, watersheds, law enforcement agencies and funeral homes.
Right now the product is available to purchase online. The larger kit sells for $10 and the smaller $7.
"We'd love to get our product in front of the entire United States," Keaton said.
After the audition voting round, finalists will participate in a web series during the fall. Voting will then select winners to have products sold on Wal-Mart shelves nationwide.
