Daysoft contact lens manufacturer has reduced its plastic consumption by 45% through investments implemented during the pandemic.
Approximately 82 tonnes of plastic was cut over a year across the firm’s 10 production lines as a result, and all plastic by-products generated were upcycled in the UK, the company said.
Ron Hamilton, Daysoft founder, said: ‘Growing a sustainable company is not just good for the planet, it’s good business. As a manufacturer, we are particularly conscious of our carbon footprint, and I am constantly challenging our team to find ways to reduce this further.’
He added that the company’s investments over the past couple of years meant the cost had not been passed on to Daysoft contact lens wearers.
