Bausch + Lomb’s Eye Care Recycling Programs Win Sustainability Award

Sep 21, 2023

Sep 21, 2023 Bausch + Lomb Corporation (NYSE/TSX: BLCO), a leading global eye health company dedicated to helping people see better to live better, today announced its ONE by ONE and Biotrue Eye Care Recycling programs have been recognized as 2023 Sustainability Award winners by Business Intelligence Group in the “Sustainability Service of the Year” category. “Millions of people wear contact lenses and use eye care materials every day, but many don’t realize the environmental waste they generate. Our unique recycling programs provide a way for eye care materials to be properly recycled in an environmentally friendly way,” said Amy Butler, vice president, Global Environment, Health, Safety and Sustainability, Bausch + Lomb. “This recognition is a testament to our focus on sustainable business practices.” Used contact lens, eye care and lens care materials are not typically processed in standard recycling facilities due to their small size and the type of plastic used to manufacture them. As a result, they can end up in landfills or waterways and contribute to plastic pollution. Bausch + Lomb's ONE by ONE Recycling program, launched in 2016, and the Biotrue Eye Care Recycling program, launched in 2021, make it possible to properly recycle used contact lens, eye care and lens care items. As of August 2023, the programs have recycled a total of 73.8 million units, or 445,600 pounds, of used contact lenses, eye care and lens care materials, which is nearly equivalent to the weight of the Statue of Liberty. To learn more about the ONE by ONE Recycling and Biotrue Eye Care Recycling programs, visit . About the ONE by ONE Recycling Program The Bausch + Lomb ONE by ONE Recycling program is the first and only sponsored contact lens recycling program in the United States. This award-winning program collects used contact lenses, top foil and opened plastic blister packs from any brand and is available to contact lens wearers and eye care professionals. Nearly 13,100 eye care practices are registered as official recycling centers of the program. To participate, contact lens wearers can bring their used contact lenses and packaging to one of these practices, which collects the used lens materials in a custom recycling bin provided by Bausch + Lomb. Once the bin is filled, the optometry practice ships the materials to TerraCycle for proper recycling using a Bausch + Lomb pre-paid shipping label. About the Biotrue Eye Care Recycling Program The Bausch + Lomb Biotrue Eye Care Recycling program is the first and only eye care recycling program in the United States. This program allows consumers who participate to properly recycle all brands of their eye drop single dose units, lens cases and lens solution caps (lens solution bottles can be recycled through standard recycling), as well as Biotrue Hydration Boost lubricant eye drops multi-dose bottles. Once consumers collect these items, they can be mailed to TerraCycle using a pre-paid shipping label. When the waste arrives at the TerraCycle facility, it is cleaned and melted into hard plastic pellets that can be used to make new recycled products. About Business Intelligence Group The  Business Intelligence Group  was founded with the mission of recognizing true talent and superior performance in the business world. Unlike other  industry award programs , business executives—those with experience and knowledge—judge the programs.
