Little things make a big difference
Germans have a word for recycling, ‘Wiederverwertung’ – but it means more than that. The literal translation is “again finding value”. Through the material we choose, by recycling all our manufacturing waste and upcycling materials, we can again find value. It’s about lowering our environmental impact with thoughtful design and manufacturing decisions.
We knew that avoiding metals would help us keep CO2 emissions from our manufacturing process on the low side. But we were blown away when we found out our fully nylon frame and pin design results in a staggering 99% reduction in CO2 emissions, compared with traditional metal-hinged glasses. Yep, a 99% reduction. You read it right.
