Remember all those Eclipse glasses everyone was scrambling to buy? Millions of those glasses are going to be thrown out this week and end up in landfills.
If you got a pair, DON'T THROW IT AWAY!
Here are 3 options:
●"Astronomers Without Borders" is collecting glasses so they can be sent to other countries with upcoming eclipses & will be distributed for free throughout schools. ●If the glasses are marked ISO 12312-2, they are compliant with safety standards & will never expire so you can keep them for future eclipses! ●If you must throw them out, at least RECYCLE the paper frames (remove the lenses first, they aren't recyclable)
