Humana Pharmacy Moves to Sustainable Packaging for Temperature-Sensitive Shipments


Humana Inc. (NYSE: HUM), a leading health and well-being company, has announced that Humana Pharmacy customers have started receiving temperature-sensitive medications in new environmentally-friendly, cold-insulated packaging.

The packaging is made from molded biodegradable expanded polystyrene (EPS) resins, which means it is designed to decompose more than 90% over four years in most landfills. Additionally, inside each new package, customers will now find long-lasting refrigerant gel packs, which are filled with a non-toxic biodegradable gel that can be washed down the kitchen sink.

"At Humana, we recognize the undeniable link between our physical health and the health of the environment. We have a strong commitment to environmental sustainability and are investing our time and resources to help make a difference for our planet," said Michael Taday, Humana Pharmacy President of Prescription Home Delivery, Retail Pharmacy, and OTC. "Many of our Humana Pharmacy customers receive medications that require storage at a certain temperature range, and we look forward to providing our customers with this new eco-friendly packaging."

Customers recently started receiving the new packaging.
