Earth Day is a time of the year to reflect on how your life and eyecare practice impact the planet. Today is an important day to take time out of your busy life and consider the impact that humanity has on the environment and for taking steps to minimize these impacts.
We pulled some useful resources from our blog to help direct you to important information about creating a more eco-friendly eyecare practice. From recycling and reusing products, to dealing with eco-friendly customers, our blogs aim to give you the tools to help achieve a more sustainable eyecare practice.
If you’re curious about where to begin your journey to becoming more eco-friendly in your eye care practice, this blog is a great place to start. Read this blog to find environmentally conscious alternatives to your existing practices.
Read about how to keep up with consumer trends and how to offer eco-conscious eyecare products in your optical dispensary. This blog will also help you navigate how to inform your patients of the benefits of living or purchasing sustainably with your product descriptions.
Consumers are calling for more supply chain transparency, eco-friendly products, and dedication to green living. How can your eyecare practice meet the demands of these consumers? Read this blog to find out.
When your patients purchase frames from your optometric practice, they have to decide what they are going to do with their old frames. Rather than throwing old frames out, your practice can start collecting reusing them for less fortunate people. Not only is this a more sustainable option, but it will help improve the quality of life for less fortunate people by helping them see clearly.
Upcycling can be applied to several items in your practice. Especially for things you were already going to throw out, upcycling can save you money and be a collaborative project for your team. Learn how you can upcycle in your practice in this blog.
