L&T news

In partnership with eye care professionals, contact lens wearers, and Plastic Bank®, CooperVision has announced that its plastic neutrality initiative has reached a significant milestone: the effort has prevented the equivalent of more than 100 million plastic bottles from entering the oceans says the company. Of these, over 23 million have been offset by eye care professionals and contact lens wearers in the UK & Ireland. CooperVision funds Plastic Bank’s collection, processing and reuse of general ocean-bound plastic waste that is equal to the weight of the plastic contained in participating products across 27 countries throughout the Americas, Europe, and Asia-Pacific. “We couldn’t be more thankful to everyone who has helped this programme become an absolute success— the eye care professionals and wearers across the planet who share CooperVision’s sustainability commitment. Each plastic neutral contact lens that is prescribed and worn makes a difference,” said Aldo Zucaro, Senior Director, Corporate Responsibility, CooperCompanies. “Together, we’re making our oceans, our communities—and our future—better. We already have our sights set on the next 100 million.”
