Swapping Out Swarf

Our recycling program gives lens manufacturing waste (or swarf) a second life by sending it to a company that uses it to make useful items like phone cases, seating, automotive parts, and much more.

Our mission is to become the most sustainable lens company in the world

  • On average we recycle 12 pounds of plastic waste every day, which adds up to 4,000 lbs a year.

  • 4,000 pounds a year is a small percentage of the waste produced by the eyewear industry every year.

Responsibility Starts Here

The eyewear industry, like many other industries, creates an incredible amount of landfill waste. We’re looking to help change that by always seeking out new ways to increase sustainability.

Recycling is only one part of our sustainable practices. Learn more about what else we do:
