Four ways to recycle your solar eclipse glasses

Four ways to recycle your solar eclipse glasses

The eclipse has come and gone - and all you're left with is grainy cell phone pictures and your eclipse glasses. If you're not keeping them as a souvenir, you might consider donating them to Astronomers Without Borders and K2 Radio with Townsquare Media will help you do it. If you'd like to donate your Eclipse glasses, bring them to Townsquare Media in Casper.

The organization says they're working on a program that will redistribute the glasses to schools in South American and Asia, which will experience solar eclipses in 2019. One possible idea is to frame the solar eclipse glasses alongside an image of the phenomenon. As for the lenses, contact a local camera shop to see if they will take them to recycle with camera film, USA Today reported. The next one goes across the South Pacific and South America on July 22, 2019.

There is always an option for people to simply wear them every day, but owners should not keep the solar eclipse glasses if they have been scratched, punctured, or torn.

Now that Monday's total solar eclipse is over, many viewers have found themselves with a pair of shades that doesn't suit their style. On their site, they ask that you don't just send them your glasses right now, but they'll be coordinating larger collection efforts soon. JUST REMEMBER: the glasses have to have the ISO 12312-2 safety standard and the filters on the eyewear can not be scratched, punctured, or torn.

"Some glasses/viewers are printed with warnings stating that you shouldn't look through them for more than three minutes at a time and that you should discard them if they are more than three years old". Neither does the plastic frame of sturdier glasses.
