Acuvue's Questionable New Product

I just saw a commercial for one of the most environmentally-unfriendly products I've ever seen: Acuvue 1*Day contact lenses.  Even though I personally use disposable contact lenses due to allergies, those last me six months as long as I take care of them.  I feel bad enough about throwing away my contacts and the packaging from the new ones twice a year.  The thought of producing that waste 365 times a year is appalling.

It's astounding that in this day of environmental awareness and companies going green, that any corporation could even consider such a wasteful product.  Get it together, Acuvue, and stop trying to destroy the Earth.
