Each year between 1.8-3.36 billion contacts are flushed down the drain. You might not think that something so small could be a problem, but those contacts become microplastics that contaminate our water. Don’t contribute to plastic pollution, always dispose of your contacts properly.

You can recycle your contacts through recycling programs.
