Saturday, April 22 is Earth Day. In advance, the Centre for Ocular Research & Education (CORE) has developed four new infographics to encourage responsible contact lens recycling.
In a bylined article published earlier this month in the UK, CORE Lead Clinical Scientist Alison Ng and Director Lyndon Jones acknowledge that “most major contact lens manufacturers have demonstrated an ongoing commitment to sustainable practices” by preventing waste as well as encouraging reuse, recycling, recovery and responsible disposal. Helping contact lens wearers better understand how they can enjoy the multiple benefits of contact lenses while being active participants in sustainable behaviors is also important, which gave rise to the infographics.
CORE encourages practices to share these environmental messages on social and digital accounts on Earth Day and beyond.
