CooperVision® has taken the next step in our continuing sustainability journey by making clariti® 1 day the first net plastic neutral contact lenses in the US.1 That is big news for patients who want the convenience of a 1-day lens and the chance to make a positive impact on the environment.
How clariti® 1 day is doing one day better
For our patients who want more than just a high-performing contact lens but one that also supports their sustainability values, we offer net plastic neutral clariti 1 day. For every box of clariti® 1 day2 distributed in the United States since January 2021, CooperVision® —the maker of clariti 1 day—partners with Plastic Bank® to collect and convert an equal amount of ocean-bound plastic through their global network.1
An annual supply of clariti 1 day contact lenses can help make a big impact. In the first three months of 2021 alone, clariti 1 day patients helped remove the equivalent of more than 5.5 million plastic bottles from the environment.
But this story goes beyond sustainability. Through CooperVision’s partnership with Plastic Bank, plastic waste collectors in coastal communities receive a premium for the materials they collect to help them provide for basic family necessities. So you’re also making a positive social impact just by wearing clariti 1 day.
Add to that the fact that clariti 1 day is a 1-day contact lens made of the healthiest contact lens material3 available and an everyday value4—you can wear a 1-day contact lens without a big investment.
