www.friouk.com/pocketsharpsThis handy little item is new from the folk at Frio. Small enough to get you through a few days or maybe a week or two, depending on your usage, it’s ideal for holidays and travelling and is designed for the safe disposal of insulin pen needles. The mini sharps bin is small enough to fit in a pocket or handbag and has a hole that you put the needle in while still attached to the pen, you twist it off, and the needle drops into the bin, so no handling needed. The mini sharps bin can be locked before being disposed of safely. £7.99 for a pack of three.
