Accidental ingestion of medications and other harmful items is a leading cause of child poisoning deaths in the United States. According to a recent study, opioids are the leading cause of child poisoning deaths, accounting for 72% of fatal ingestions in children under the age of six. The packaging of many medications and natural remedies is designed to be attention-grabbing, which can make them attractive to children. Labels and warnings are not always effective in deterring children from accessing these items, as they cannot read or understand them. Therefore, it’s time to take action and promote responsible storage of medications and other potentially harmful items.
At Stash Monkey, we understand the importance of child safety and have developed a secure storage solution to keep medications and other potentially harmful items out of children’s hands. Our product, the Stash Monkey, is an airtight container with a locking lid that is designed to be secure enough to deter children from accessing its contents. With attention-grabbing packaging becoming more prevalent, it’s more important than ever to have a solution like the Stash Monkey that provides an extra layer of protection.
We believe that it’s time for a movement that promotes responsible medication storage and raises awareness of the dangers of accidental ingestion. The “Got Them Lock Them” movement would encourage all households to adopt locking container solutions to keep medications and other potentially harmful items secure. Just as the seatbelt and drunk driving movements have saved countless lives, a movement for responsible storage could have a similar impact.
Education is also essential in promoting responsible storage practices. Parents and caregivers should be educated on the importance of keeping medications and other harmful items out of reach of children and how to properly store them. We believe that education and accessible solutions can make a difference in reducing accidental ingestions and saving lives.
In conclusion, the statistics on accidental ingestion of medications and other harmful items are alarming, and it’s time to take action. The “Got Them Lock Them” movement can promote responsible storage practices and raise awareness of the dangers of accidental ingestion. With solutions like the Stash Monkey and education, we can work together to keep our children safe and prevent tragic accidents.
