Sustainability: The optical industry response
Author: Simon Jones
The optical industry has been slower than many in mobilising its response to the issue of sustainability and climate change. But that's changing. Sustainable production, carbon footprint reduction, environmentally friendly materials are now all part of the landscape.
In this episode, we talk to three different optical businesses to get a broader view of the challenges they're facing and the solutions being introduced.
Millmead Optical Group talks about how it approaches sustainability across three different parts of its business, optometrist Simon Berry tells us how he considers ethical suppliers and Sea2see explains how it began to create eyewear from recycled marine plastic.
