RECYCLED IS AS GOOD AS NEW – OUR SUSTAINABLE GLASSES
As a further step towards more sustainability, we use recyclates for our "Recycled" sunglasses and reading glasses.
Recyclates are recycled plastics made from PE (polyethylene), PP (polypropylene), PET (polyethylene terephthalate) or PMMA (acrylic glass). These synthetic materials have already been through a first product life cycle, but they are still an excellent raw material for new plastic.
The disposed plastic is cleaned, modified, crushed, filtered and processed into granulate. This granulate can then be remelted and used as a raw material for new products. Thus, the frames for our sunglasses and reading glasses are made of 100% recycled plastic.
Recycled plastic is of a comparable quality to conventional plastic. It offers high strength and surface hardness and is also resistant to weather and UV radiation. And it even lends itself well to dyeing in a wide range of colours. Just like before, but now more sustainable.
Advantages of recycled plastic as regards sustainability:
- Reduced consumption of raw fossil fuels
- Production protects both valuable resources and the environment
- Use of post-consumer plastics
