Are OVRY™ Products a more environmentally-friendly alternative than similar drugstore products?
Yes! OVRY™ Strips are better for the environment than all pregnancy and ovulation tests sold in drugstores. OVRY™ tests are a fraction of the size and do not have the large plastic single-use handles found on nearly all other traditional tests. All OVRY™ products use sustainably sourced and recyclable packaging wherever possible. The paper boxes, instructions, and small plastic cup included for repeat-use, are all recyclable and the desiccant packets can be reused. To reduce any risk of contamination, regulatory standards in North America require us to package each test strip individually. However, our much smaller and more discreet tests help reduce the amount of plastic that ends up in landfills. Lastly, most competing brands have their tests manufactured overseas therefore increasing the carbon footprint of each test. Since OVRY™ tests are manufactured in Canada, each test travels a much shorter distance to arrive at its customer, therefore reducing its carbon footprint.
