Bridging the gap between our surplus and the scarcity of others.

MedEarth’s mission is to promote the protection and enhancement of our natural environment through a solid waste reduction program, by repurposing and redistributing medical supplies and equipment discarded by the health care industry.

Lara Garfinkel and Laura Taitz founded MedEarth in 2013, based on the inspiration provided by MedWish ( and it’s founder Dr Lee Ponsky. Laura and Lara realised that there was a gap in the medical waste landscape of Australia and that by forming MedEarth they could promote the protection and enhancement of our¬†environment whilst helping to save the lives .
