We'd like to think so. The word 'sustainable' is over used and confusing. This is our version of sustainable.
100% recycled frames
We make and control the manufacturing of our frames in Sydney to make sure no one nor the planet is harmed. And no cheap labour!
End of life
We take back broken parts and entire frames to be recycled. Please email us and we’ll give you the free Reply Paid address to send them to.
Because we use only 100% recycled plastic in our frames, we use 70-75% less CO2 in our manufacturing than almost all other brands who use virgin materials (brand new plastic/ bioacetate).
Our manufacturing process is zero waste. Every piece of our off-cut plastic finds a new home.
Because we've reengineered the frame, we use less energy in our production. We make a frame in 90 seconds instead of the typical 100 hours.
Sunnies made by the sun
Our manufacturing partner has installed some serious solar panels on the factory roof. We only runs our frame making machines in the day to take advantage of this renewable power. Good thing the suns always shining in Sydney!
Our lenses are manufactured by Carl Zeiss Vision in Hong Kong. We cut and fit our lenses at Zeiss in Adelaide.
Box, case & cloth
All are made from certified 100% recycled materials in our certified factories in China (via our local agent in Sydney).
Through Plastic Bank, we prevent plastic waste from reaching the ocean. The process 100% traceable and certified. Each pair sold stops 0.5kg (equiv. to 25 plastic bottles)
We lock away 10kg of CO2 through C2Zero who uses Mastercard Blockchain.
We use compostable mailing satchels that you can bury in your garden and we use Australia Post's carbon neutral postal service.
