Insulet Establishes Eco-Friendly Disposal Program for the OmniPod(R) Insulin Management System
Date:7/8/2009

BEDFORD, Mass., July 8 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Insulet Corporation (Nasdaq: PODD), the leader in tubing-free insulin pump technology, announced today that the Company is introducing an environmentally friendly disposal program for its OmniPod(R) Insulin Management System. The Eco-Pod program will reduce the impact of used Pods on the environment, preventing hazardous waste from unnecessarily entering landfills.

"We are proud to offer our customers the first environmentally safe disposal program in the insulin pump industry. The OmniPod System makes diabetes a smaller part of life and now it will have a smaller impact on the environment."

Following procedures for bio-hazardous waste, the Pods are disassembled and metals are removed and recycled. The remaining components are then pulverized.

To participate, customers simply log on to MyOmniPod.com to pre-register. Insulet will pay for the costs associated with the disposal process, while program participants are responsible for shipping costs, which are less than $3 per month. Beginning August 1, a Pod Disposal Kit will be included with each Pod re-order. The kit includes all the tools customers need to do their part: a bag for collecting used Pods, a special pre-paid, pre-addressed bio-hazard s
