CERIUM LIGHTENS THE LOAD WITH ECOBAG. As a way to reduce impact on the environment, Cerium Optical Products (USA) Inc. has added Ecobag to its Shades family of lens dyes. Ecobag is a dry product in a dissolvable bag that has a pre-measured amount of non-toxic environmentally friendly dye. The user simply places the Ecobag in water and heats it to the correct temperature—less waste, mess, and hassle than conventional dyes, and perfect results every time, according to the company. For more information, contact Cerium Optical Products (USA) Inc. at 877-239-7002 or ceriumoptical.com.
