Today’s photo shows one of my favorite Cool Globes in Uptown Charlotte. It is called Recycling and is specific to contact lenses. I like this globe because of the beautiful painting and I like the message. Following is an excerpt from the plaque on the globe.
Contact lenses are small enough to be considered a microplastic in terms of pollution .. adding to the hundreds of thousands of tons of microplastic floating in our oceans .. recycling .. through sites like Terracycle.
