Mercury Rising In Fish

Avoid Fish Or Not?

That seems to be the question. Eating fish and seafood in general is becoming a health risk. Yes, we need to clean up our planet and deal with pollution, food packaging and overpopulation but before we get there, you need to know the dangers. For example foods like tuna and swordfish and other popular seafood often carry high very levels of mercury.

So what are we to do? Good question. Consider what we are all doing every day to increase waste. Consider your body and how to best protect it. Lots of concerns. No easy answers. All the best #canadaūüćĀ

Here is a great list we found at the link at the bottom of this post. Eat wisely and let’s all work together to save our amazing planet (and ourselves).

Founders: “Help¬†Save Our Planet!”

“We are the first company in the world to do what we are doing, providing over half of our profits to the non-profit that the buyer chooses. We are taking a stand that doing business can be much more than just a process of making money. It can be about sharing, sustaining and helping others.

51% of every dollar of profit goes to one of over 40 non-profits because if we don’t take care of our Planet – who will?

You have my personal guarantee that when you support – you are truly supporting an entirely new way of doing business, with compassion and concern for others at the very forefront of what we do.”

Paul Signature ver2

— Paul W. Slusher, Owner, Founder & CEO of

Save Money. Save the Planet.

¬†We Donate – YOU Decide Where…

  • We donate 51% of our profits to help Save the Planet
  • Canadians save 70% or MORE on contact lenses
  • Connect our buyers with great non-profit organizations
  • Educate the public while we help save them money

There is no one in the world doing this. Yes, there are some great companies who give back, who educate and promote great ideas. But no one has ever given the power of the donation directly to you – the buyer – like

In addition, no one has ever promised to reach the 51% of profits donation level before either. We are the very first and yes – we are a proud, 100% Canadian owned and operated company.

We couldn’t make it any easier.

1. You pick the contact lenses you want to buy.

2. You pick the organization that you want a portion of our profits to go to.

3. You wait a few days for your contact lenses to arrive at your home.

…and¬†your purchase helps the planet!

We believe represents the future, the future of how companies should operate and hopefully the future of what customers will come to expect from the companies they buy from.

We have created a way for the profits generated from selling contact lenses to be used to empower those organizations fighting to save our Planet. We have created a website that still provides great products at the lowest prices, but also plugs the consumer who is interested into issues and organizations that matter, that are at the front lines for global change.

In the end, our legacy as a company might be further-reaching than just being another contact lens website. Our legacy might be that we changed the model of how companies do business.
