Eyewear collection & recycling
Eyewear distributed on Give the Gift of Sight international missions are collected in Luxottica Group affiliated outlets around the world, through Lions Club International and community organizations. Every pair of glasses is checked, cleaned and repaired by volunteers and prepared for distribution on international missions. To date, over three million pairs of eyewear have been recycled in the three recycle centers in Mason, Ohio (Luxottica Retail North America headquarters), Agordo, Italy (Luxottica Group Manufacturing plant), and Port Washington, New York (Luxottica Wholesale North American headquarters).
