Environment

Homeopathy is a sustainable form of medicine with a minimal negative impact on the environment in terms of pollution, carbon emissions and energy use. For example:
 

  • Potentised remedies need very small amounts of material for their initial production, so they have a minimal impact on global ecology.
  • While homeopathic pharmacists need plants and animals for making some remedies, these need to be as unpolluted as possible, so they have a vested interest in reducing pollution.
  • A huge number of doses of a remedy can be produced from the initial material and therefore homeopathy is both a cheap and efficient user of resources.
  • Potentised remedies have a very long shelf-life in conditions requiring no specialist equipment, again making them a cheap and efficient use of resources.
  • Potentised remedies cannot be stored in plastic containers, but have to use glass containers, which can be recycled.
  • A very low level of technology is required to produce remedies, so homeopathy has a small carbon footprint.
  • Production of potentised remedies produces almost exclusively biodegradable waste in the form of alcohol and organic matter, so it causes minimal levels of pollution.
    • Because potentised remedies can be de-activated by heat and sunlight, homeopathy creates no risks to the environment.
