Proper Medication Disposal

I know I just posted about Bill Nye's new show, Stuff Happens, on Planet Green, but I just can't say enough about it. It is super informative. As I've said many times before, I may have a blog on going green but I'm learning like everyone else and his show has taught me a lot I didn't know.

For instance, I didn't know that you shouldn't flush medication because it creates mutant bacteria that contaminates the waterway. Instead, I've read elsewhere, you should crush the pills and break capsules to keep children and/or pets from getting ahold of them in the trash. Who knew? Well, maybe you did, but I didn't and I'm sorry to say I've flushed my share of pills in the past...prescription only of course.

Anyway, if you haven't watched this show yet, please keep an eye out. Feel free to share your favorite tips from the show or elsewhere.

Bill Nye has never, ever, had a bad show!

The cool thing about ol' Billy is that his shows actually teach fun facts, which is what I'm all about.

But I agree, Bill Nye's show is rad, because Bill himself is rad.
