Can you recycle your Daily Contact Lenses?

Can you recycle your Daily Contact Lenses?

Simply put, YES YOU CAN!

We’ve had a tonne of comments on social media about our daily lenses. Sadly, a few of them have been scathing about our contribution to plastic waste. 

Let’s take Hopi out of the equation for a second. The proliferation of plastic products in the last several decades has been extraordinary. Quite simply, humans are addicted to this nearly indestructible material. We are producing over 300 million tons of plastic every year, 50% of which is for single-use purposes – utilized for just a few moments, but on the planet for at least several hundred years. More than 8 million tons of plastic is dumped into our oceans every year.

So we just wanted to outline our stance on the matter and how, as a small business, we’re committed to the best possible standards around sustainability.

Our brown shipping boxes ARE 100% recyclable

Our blue Hopi boxes ARE 100% recyclable

Your plastic blister packs are made from one of the safest plastics, polypropylene which is increasingly being accepted by recycling programmes (please check before doing this)

Even your contact lenses can be recycled with the above mentioned items

However, one thing we’re still working on is the foil lens seals on the blister packs. These tops are not commonly recycled. So please do remove these from the blister packs before recycling. Rest assured, we are looking at ways we can ensure these too can be recycled.

Take care!

    Cool website!

    My name’s Eric, and I just found your site – – while surfing the net. You showed up at the top of the search results, so I checked you out. Looks like what you’re doing is pretty cool.

    But if you don’t mind me asking – after someone like me stumbles across, what usually happens?

    Is your site generating leads for your business?

    I’m guessing some, but I also bet you’d like more… studies show that 7 out 10 who land on a site wind up leaving without a trace.

    Not good.

    Here’s a thought – what if there was an easy way for every visitor to “raise their hand” to get a phone call from you INSTANTLY… the second they hit your site and said, “call me now.”

    You can –

    Talk With Web Visitor is a software widget that’s works on your site, ready to capture any visitor’s Name, Email address and Phone Number. It lets you know IMMEDIATELY – so that you can talk to that lead while they’re literally looking over your site.

    CLICK HERE to try out a Live Demo with Talk With Web Visitor now to see exactly how it works.

    Time is money when it comes to connecting with leads – the difference between contacting someone within 5 minutes versus 30 minutes later can be huge – like 100 times better!

    That’s why we built out our new SMS Text With Lead feature… because once you’ve captured the visitor’s phone number, you can automatically start a text message (SMS) conversation.

    Think about the possibilities – even if you don’t close a deal then and there, you can follow up with text messages for new offers, content links, even just “how you doing?” notes to build a relationship.

    Wouldn’t that be cool?
