What have we done?
In all 43 practices, we have recycling bins for contact lenses, hearing aids, and glasses. We work with teracycle, who are an innovative recycling company. Clients are encouraged to bring in their old contact lenses, blister packs, and the foil on the blister pack. This ensures all materials are properly recycled.
We also proudly work with the Lion’s Club charity, who take old glasses and hearing aids, and they donate them directly to eye clinics in Papua New Guinea, Sri Lanka, Ghana, Nigeria, and Nepal. In our central support building we have recycling bins and we have made small changes to make big differences.
All of our practices offer sustainable eyewear brands, such as sea2see and the ECO Conscious range from Eyespace. Sea2see offer frames that are made of 100% certified recycled marine plastic.
