THE PROBLEM

Contact lenses are literally going down the drain, pass through waste treatment plants, and entering waste water and then the ocean. 

SOLUTIONS AND ACTION

We seek a mandate that requires contact manufacturing companies to provide take-back programs. This would allow consumers to drop off or mail in their used contacts and disposable cases so they can be disposed of or recycled properly.
