New Household Mailing Campaign with the Deterra Direct Mail Pouch

Learn how this education & prevention program empowers everyone to destroy drugs and save lives

By: Nancy Devine, Chief Operating Officer at Verde Environmental Technologies, Inc.

Organizations and communities trying to address opioid misuse are facing an uphill battle – many are short on time, resources, and staff even as demand for prevention and recovery services increases.

It’s not easy to do more with less, but there are solutions to help make the most of your time and budget while expanding the reach of critical prevention efforts.

We’re excited to announce the launch of our new and improved Household Mailing Campaign with the NEW Deterra® Direct Mail Pouch (DMP), an education and prevention program designed to get evidence-based resources directly into the right hands.

Through a household mailing campaign, Deterra Direct Mail Pouches are mailed directly to households you choose via the United States Postal Service (USPS). The Deterra Direct Mail Pouch (DMP) is an at-home drug deactivation and disposal pouch designed to make household mailings even easier and more cost-effective. The DMP features the same active ingredients and award-winning, plant-based packaging as other Deterra products, but it’s specially designed for efficient mailing.

The DMP is USPS-approved for automated flat rate postage, so it can be delivered to all 50 states for less than the cost of a first-class postage stamp plus the cost of the pouch.

Each pouch is accompanied by a 11″x6.75″ custom postcard with plentiful space for your organization’s messaging, prevention tips, hotline numbers and more.

The best part? We do the work for you. Our team takes care of all the details so you can quickly and easily implement a household mailing campaign with minimal staff time.

A household mailing campaign helps raise awareness about the importance of proper drug disposal and empowers everyone to safely dispose of unwanted drugs as soon as they are no longer needed.
