Why should you need to choose between sustainable or stylish sunglasses?
Our goal is to combine fashion and sustainability without having to make the sunglasses unaffordable. By taking one step at the time we believe that we will be able to create sustainable sunglasses and a sustainable company. We always strive for increased sustainability and this is something we will work with on an ongoing basis for all parts of the business. We have several ideas that are being tested right now and we are looking forward to launching this as soon as possible.
Today we use five different materials for our sunglasses depending on the design we want to create. The five different materials we use in our manufacturing process are; Recycled plastic, plastic, acetate, metal, and cellulose propionate.
All of our sunglasses have 100% UV (400) protection. The majority of our sunglasses are equipped with a CR39 lens that is scratch resistant. Further, the front and the shell are often composed of a five-cylinder hinge to improve the quality of the connection between the temple and front. There is also a case made of hard cardboard and a pouch which makes it easy to both protect and carry the sunglasses.
When new sunglasses are manufactured, plastic is melted to design the frame. When doing so, some of the melted plastic is discarded. By collecting the plastic waste and melting it down again, the plastic is reused and we can reduce the waste of plastic directly inside the factory. The quality of the sunglasses is almost like new ones, and together, with you, we have taken a small step towards a more sustainable future.
