We are all responsible for the wellbeing of our planet. One in three contact lens wearers are completely unaware of the environmental impact of their contact lenses.1
We all have a part to play and with almost 800 million plastic contact lenses being used in the UK each year2, we have the opportunity to make a difference by teaching our patients about the damage done by contact lenses and educating them on the alternative solutions available.
Demonstrate a commitment to helping to reduce the environmental harm single-use and other plastics cause to our ocean by contributing a voluntary donation to a charity that is set up to do just that – Ocean Generation.
By donating to Ocean Generation, you will be supporting them to continue their critical work to provide education around Ocean threats, develop practical behaviour change solutions, and seek to influence policy change.
Small changes can make a big difference to benefit the world around us. Play your part today.
