The Kelly Eyecare team have always been keen to explore how to minimise our impact on the environment, whilst enhancing our service to our customers. It is not always easy trying to marry the two, but over the last 12 months we have made some exciting progress, which we are really proud of and wanted to share with you.
We have implemented a number of internal initiatives to help reduce our carbon footprint and impact on the planet.
Contact lens recycling facilities available across our branches
We have installed TerraCycle boxes in our Ringwood and Parkstone sites, where you can put your used contact lenses, pods, foil tops and empty solution bottles to be recycled.
Recycle your old glasses when your new pair arrive
We now offer a facility for people to recycle their old glasses. These glasses are reused in eye camps in Africa, India and Eastern Europe, or for scrap materials to make more spectacles and raise funds for eye-related charities and projects all around the world.
Pop in for a lens cleaner refill
Our customers can now refill their complimentary lens cleaning spray bottles in any branch using the refill stations.
Bring along your reusable prescription wallet at your next visit
Our prescription wallets are reusable and we actively encourage patients to return them at their next visit, to help cut down on paper use.
We work with plenty of eco-conscious brands
We stock lots of sustainable brands, including Wolf Eyewear who produce frames from recycled fishing nets and plastic rescued from oceans, and Morel who will repair your glasses for free and provides biodegradable demo glasses.
These initiatives are not the end of our journey to improve our environmental impact, but individual steps to a more sustainable world. If you have any ideas on other initiatives we can explore, we’d love to hear from you.
