Eye Columbus is proud to partner with Preserve Products and their Preserve Gimme 5 Program. Bring your empty contact lens packs (foil completely removed please) to one of our locations, and we'll do the recycling for you. How it works; We'll send your empty contact lens packs to Preserve Products, there the packs will be cleaned, and recycled into their environmentally friendly products.
- "Finally, a recycling solution for your yogurt cups, hummus tubs and other #5 plastic containers! If you’re serious about recycling, you know that most communities don’t accept these common containers for recycling. There’s not enough money in it for them to make it work. And those communities that do accept #5s are generally forced (by poor economics) into bundling them with other plastics to form a mixed plastic bale. This mixed plastic bale is of low value and is often shipped overseas to an unknown end of life.
- Preserve and our partners created the Gimme 5 program to offer a simple way to save these plastics and make sure they have a second life. Now you can enjoy all of those great products that come packaged in #5 plastic, save them up, clean them out and drop them at one of these retail locations. Just look for the Preserve Gimme 5 bin.
- By recycling your #5s through the Gimme 5 program, you are:
- • Saving plastic from being sent to landfills
- • Keeping it local by recycling it here in the USA
- • Powering Preserve by helping us transform your recyclables into new Preserve toothbrushes and razors"
