Other Sustainability Notes

Sustainability runs in our DNA. We use our business as a lever to advocate for and defend our planet. We design our sunglasses the right way: sustainably and with respect for nature. In addition to our carbon neutral certification, we are also members of 1% For the Planet, and give 1% of our revenue to environmental nonprofits. Beyond just donations and offsets, we show sustainability with our actions: we have invented our own recycled plastic polymer, Superlight, which is intercepted from a landfill and repurposed into sunglasses. We have eliminated all single use plastic and glue in our packaging.
