Every year over 725 million contact lenses are thrown away contributing to the environmental damage caused by plastic in our seas and oceans. One contact lens company has decided to make a difference and is offering to take away used contact lenses, blister and foil packaging and recycle them into something “new and shiny”!
The programme is available for any type or make of disposable soft contact lens and is free and easy to join.
The programme is run by a world leader in contact lenses, Johnson & Johnson. Any contact lens wearer who wants to make a difference to the planet should consider taking part and enrolment is simple, just visit acuvue.co.uk/recycle.
