Have you ever felt bad about how much contact lens waste you throw away every year? I never know whether the little plastic packs can be recycled so I pop them in anyway but I always wonder if they’ll be too small. As for the foil tops, I do take them to the recycling centre every couple of months with my other foil, but I bet for lots of people this isn’t possible or it’s too much hassle.
Well, all that has changed now! Wonder-recycler Terracycle is now recycling contact lens waste at Boots branches or other public drop-off locations. They even recycle the actual lenses! Find out more here:
Thanks, Terracycle! ♻️
