Sustainability in Eyecare

“Sustainability” has become somewhat of a hot topic in the last few years, but don’t let the fact that it has been overused detract from the value of the idea it represents. Sustainability is critical, especially in the healthcare setting.

We advocate “green” living by doing business in a space using reclaimed and recycled materials within our office. Our display cabinets, storage cabinets, countertops and trim work were built using locally reclaimed materials. Our carpet is made with 100% recycled plastic and rubber. We used no VOC Miller paint on our walls. And, we have eliminated the use of paper for our medical records and patient intake forms.

One of our Initiatives

The Bausch + Lomb ONE by ONE Recycling Program allows used contact lenses and packaging to be recycled properly, with the goal of reducing landfill waste associated with contact lenses. It is the first sponsored contact lens recycling program from Bausch + Lomb and TerraCycle, a global leader in recycling hard-to-recycle waste.

You may drop off your waste at our office or print a free shipping label at BauschRecycles.com. After placing your waste in a sealed cardboard box, you can drop it off at a UPS location or schedule a pickup to ship from home. Please reach out to us to learn more about this program and how we can recycle your used contact lenses.

You can recycle waste associated with contact lenses, including:

  1. Contact lenses
  2. Top foil
  3. Opened plastic blister packs
