Reducing our environmental impact has been high on our list of priorities since we opened our first practice in 2012. We have written a Green Policy which outlines our many eco friendly initiatives. You can view and download our Green Policy via the link at the bottom of this page.

We have received a Gold Award this year, the highest possible accolade, from the Greener Primary Care Scheme and we have liased with the Greener Primary Care team to suggest actions that can be added into next year’s framework. We were named their Team of the Month in May 2023, with a tree being planted in the NHS forest on our behalf.

We were named as a finalist in the Green Practice of the Year category at the very first Optometry Wales Awards in November 2023. We also came second place in the Sustainable Practice Award at the national Optician Awards in 2022.

Also in 2022, we wrote an open letter to all of our suppliers to ask that they reduce their use of single use plastic. Optician Magazine publised a small article about this as part of their Sustanability issue.

In 2018, we launched New to Me, which is our range of planet friendly, pre owned but good as new frames at bargain prices. Each one has been cleaned and reconditioned, ready to be loved by someone new.
