Sustainable Child-Safe Packaging. Reusable glass containers to replace disposable plastic pill bottles

Highlights

  • Plastics are becoming the largest global health crisis. Each year 1.4 billion lbs. of plastic, child-safe containers end up as environmental waste
  • Our patented, durable containers remain child-safe over many reuses and will replace single-use, disposable plastic pill bottles
  • Our patent-pending robotic wash & test system ensures that each container remains child-safe over a lifetime of reuses and refills
  • Child-safe packaging is a $19.3B market
  • We have demonstrated traction with our revenue-generating Canniloq brand 

 


The Problem

Plastics are Threatening Human Health on a Global Scale

Plastics are becoming the largest global health crisis1. Plastic products degrade into micro-particles which expand into the environment and the food chain. If we don't act now, plastics will outweigh fish in our oceans by 20502.

 

 

Child-safe containers are part of the problem. They are made of single-use, disposable plastic, and every year 1.4 billion pounds of them are discarded as environmental waste.

OUR SOLUTION

100% Circular Child-Safe Packaging

91% of child-safe containers end up as environmental waste3. The existing disposable containers are designed for low-cost and will not remain child-safe over many reuses.  

Our sustainable, child-safe packaging model is similar to returnable, milk bottles. Empty, glass, child-safe containers are returned, washed, sterilized, tested, and then refilled.

 

 

 

 

Our patented, long-life container design, and robotic wash/test system, ensure that each container will remain child-safe over a long lifetime of reuses and refills.

THE MARKET

Child-Safe Packaging is a $19.3 Billion Market

Single-use, plastic, child-safe packaging is a $19.3B global market and is projected to reach $27.1B by 20274

Businesses needing child-safe packaging include:

 

 Pharmaceutical manufacturers

 

 Dietary supplement manufacturers

 

 Household cleaner manufacturers

 

 Cannabis/CBD manufacturers


COMPETITIVE LANDSCAPE

We are unaware of any other companies currently marketing reusable, child-safe packaging or wash systems to the pharma or supplement markets.

Terracycle/Loop Inc. is the leader in closed-loop recycling of consumer packaging, and partnering with major brands like Kroger, Walgreens, Proctor & Gamble Clorox, Walmart, Target and PepsiCo. They are looking for partners to supply reusable, child-safe packaging to their large pharma customers, and have contacted us regarding samples. 

In the cannabis industry, there are several small companies offering sustainable, child-safe solutions:

We are Pioneering 100% Circular Child-Safe Packaging

Our business mission is to create and develop a new, untapped market for durable, reusable, child-safe packaging. Our patented, long-life cap and our robotic wash & test system are key to child-safe operation over many reuses.

We launched our revenue-generating Canniloq brand into the cannabis market as the first proving ground for durable, reusable child-safe containers. We confirmed that there is a high demand in the cannabis industry for sustainable child-safe packaging options but few suppliers. We are commuicating with potential large manufacturing customers, who looking for sustainable, child-safe packaging suppliers. We also used this exploratory phase to validate the reliability of our unique, high-lifecycle, child-safe design.

Now with 8,000 units sold, $200K in orders, 24 wholesale accounts, and a growing global appetite for sustainable products, the timing is right to expand our vision beyond cannabis to the pharma and supplement markets.

 

 

 


TIMELINE

12 Month Development Timeline

We estimate a 12 month timeline to develop a line of low-cost glass child-safe containers & caps, and a robotic wash system targeted for the pharma and supplement markets

Use of Proceeds

The net proceeds of $1M, will primarily be used to scale up for the pharma and dietary supplement markets:
 
1 - Develop Low Cost Glass Containers and Child Safe Caps - $200K, Timeline 6 Months
2 - Develop Semi-Automatic Reusable Container Wash Process - $50K, Timeline 3 Months
3 - Develop Robotic Reusable Container Wash Equipment - $550K, Timeline 12 Months
4 - Build Company Infrastructure - $200K, Timeline 8 Months
Total - $1M, Timeline 12 Months

 

1 - Develop Low-Cost Glass Containers and Child-Safe Caps - $200K

Existing child-safe containers used for dispensing prescription pills are designed for low cost and single use, and will not survive the high cycles of  re-cap, high temperature wash and sterilization cycles needed for a reusable product.   

Mediloq's current container and cap designs are designed to survive the high cycles of  re-cap, high temperature wash and sterilization cycles, however for the higher estimated quantities, optimization is needed in the following areas:

  • Unit cost reduction
  • Features needed for high throughput handling, washing and drying
  • Development of additional container sizes and form factors

In addition, new tooling, GMP manufacturing processes and suppliers will be needed. Development of these new, reusable child safe containers will be outsourced to an engineering services firm and managed by Mediloq personnel.  

 

2 - Develop Semi-Automatic Reusable Container Wash Process - $50K

It should take only 6 months for glass containers to be available for market launch, but the fully-automated wash system will not be available for another 6 months.  

In order to start selling the glass containers at 6 months, a semi-automated wash process can be quickly developed.  This process will use readily-available commercial wash equipment, that will need to be manually assisted. Throughput will be lower, and the process will be more expensive per container than the fully-automated system, but will eliminate a 6 month delay to container market launch.

The equipment and personnel will take in returned child-safe containers and caps, wash and sterilize the bodies and caps so that they are free of previous labels, contents and contaminants, and then dry the washed parts. The child-safe containers and caps will then be tested to ensure that the child safe features are still functioning properly.

 

3 - Develop Robotic Reusable Container Wash System - $550K

In parallel with the development of new reusable child safe containers, Mediloq will develop a robotic system for washing, sanitizing and testing returned child safe containers.

The system will take in returned child-safe containers and caps, wash and sterilize the bodies and caps so that they are free of previous labels, contents and contaminants, and then dry the washed parts. The system will then automatically test the child-safe containers and caps, to ensure that the child safe features are still functioning properly.

The system will be designed to be compatible with the new containers developed in section 1, with consideration given to easily-replaceable modules, allowing  the system  to be configured to handle a variety of container sizes and designs. 

The system will be composed mainly of off-the-shelf robotic, electo-mechanical and software control technology, similar to those used in other automation systems.

Development of the robotic, reusable child safe container refurbishing system will be outsourced to an engineering services firm and managed by Mediloq personnel.  

 

4 - Build Company Infrastructure - $200K

In addition to the product development described in sections 1 and 2, personnel, operations and facilities will be needed to market, sell, manufacture and distribute the reusable container and wash equipment product lines.

The Mediloq headquarters will be located in the US, however the specific locations for the other various parts of the operations should be determined as the business and customers evolve.
