    Lions Recycle for Sight receives support from Eyelines Tasmania during May

    Eyelines Tasmania encourages everyone to recycle their old glasses to help the sight affected in third world countries through the Lions Recycle for Sight program.

    As an incentive to recycle in May - Eyelines is offering a $50 on the spot trade in off a new pair of glasses.

    Lions Recycle for Sight is part of the Lions Clubs International Worldwide Eyeglass Recycling Program.
    Over the 15 years that the Australian program has existed, the program has delivered 2.5 million pairs to countries in Africa, Europe, Middle East, Indian Sub continent, East Asia, and the Far East, including China, the countries of the Pacific Rim and Southern Asia and Oceania.

    Will Downie CEO of Eyelines is keen on the company supporting such a significant project.

    "When you trade in your old glasses, we recycle them by forwarding the glasses to Queensland where they are quality tested, washed and dried, graded, sorted and packed. These recycled glasses are forwarded to Lions Clubs, church missions and humanitarian groups in third world countries to be given to people in need.''

    Last year alone, in excess of 26,000 pairs of spectacles left Tasmania for other areas of the world where there is a need such as Africa, Solomon Islands, Moldova, India, East Timor, Fiji, and other islands on the Pacific Rim.

    For some it is the first time in their lives that they have seen family members clearly.

    Optometry services and products are simply not available, too expensive or out of reach for the majority of the third world population.

    The Lions Recycle for Sight ensures supplies of various graded glasses are instantly on hand to give to adults and children who are sight affected, improving their quality of life.

    Eyelines is hoping to reach a target of 1400 glasses for the Lions Recycle for Sight Project in May.

    To support the Lions Recycle for Sight Project bring in your old frames to any Eyelines store across Tasmania.
