Keep an EYE on the environment so that our children SEE a better future.
An estimated 3.7 million people wear contact lenses…
Recycling contact lenses used to be challenging, and 20% of wearers admitted they disposed of their lenses by flushing them down the toilet or the sink. Could you be doing more? Are you one of these 20%?
This new contact lens recycling scheme aims to reduce plastic waste in landfill and the oceans by providing a simple and practical alternative. Bring all of your contact lenses and packets to Park Vision and we will do it all for you. The recycled contact lenses, blister and foil packaging will be turned into products such as outdoor furniture.
Seven in 10 Britons say they are confused about the types of household items they can recycle, according to recent research by Johnson & Johnson Vision. When it comes to contact lenses, 39% of wearers say they believe they can recycle them or are not sure. We have raised £13.70 so far and every £100 raised will go to a Nottinghamshire charity of our choice. Suggestions accepted!
“Seventy-seven per cent of British contact lens wearers said they would recycle their contact lenses if they could and we share their interest in reducing the amount of plastics in the environment,” said Sandra Rasche, of Johnson & Johnson Medical. “We are committed to doing our part to combat climate change, protect our planet’s natural resources and reduce waste.”
All you have to do is drop into Park Vision Monday – Saturday and hand over your contact lenses and packets… we do the rest. It’s as simple as that and we are saving the planet and raising money for charity together! Help us all keep an EYE on the environment so that our children SEE the difference.
