The Product Stewardship Institute (PSI) is a national non-profit organization that brings together key stakeholders with conflicting interests to jointly develop product stewardship solutions that reduce the health, environmental, and social impacts of consumer products. Leveraging its membership base of 47 state governments, over 200 local governments, and partnerships with more than 75 companies, organizations, universities, and non-U.S. governments, PSI pursues initiatives to ensure that all those involved in the lifecycle of a product share responsibility for reducing its impact, with producers bearing primary financial and managerial responsibility. PSI works on over 15 product categories including batteries, electronics, fluorescent lighting, gas cylinders, mattresses, paint, packaging, pharmaceuticals, and thermostats. PSI advances both voluntary programs and legislation to promote effective industry-led initiatives that support sustainable materials management. PSI focuses on post consumer initiatives that seek to reduce impacts across the full product lifecycle, including the extraction of virgin materials, manufacturing, transportation, use, and end of life.
The Product Stewardship Institute is an equal opportunity provider and employer.

Thank you for your interest in the Drug Take-Back Network. We’d like to stay in touch!
Join a list serve that provides a forum for a national dialogue on the emerging issue of pharmaceuticals and personal care products (PPCPs) in the environment. List serve members organize, discuss, and track ideas, projects, grants, and other PPCP-related issues. Participants are primarily from various government agencies, and others are welcome to join. Sign up at http://lists.dep.state.fl.us/cgi-bin/mailman/listinfo/pharmwaste.
PSI is also conducting a national dialogue that seeks to reach consensus on the need for widespread drug take-back programs, as well as reducing the quantity of pharmaceuticals that become waste. Please also contact Scott Cassel for information on how to get involved in the dialogue process.
