REuse REduce REcycle
Faithful to our eco-ideals, we are the pioneers to REcyle and REuse the necessary materials to produce our collections in order to REduce the impact on the environment. This is how we can guarantee that each NatureEyes frame is made from, at least, 75% of recycled materials.
The NatureEyes collections are also made using advanced industrial processes which includes the use of polluant-free coatings and colours which contribute to minimize the collection’s impact on the environment.
First, NatureEyes organize the collection of used titanium frames which are sent to the factory who add it to industrial left-over and then, recycle and process it into sheets of titanium.
Those sheets of recycled titanium are used to produced NatureEyes titanium eyewear and components.
For our wood collection we exclusively use sheets of wood produced from trees coming from specific plantations reserved for the eco-label wood industry and certified by the FSC (Forest Stewardship Council).
We can then offer wood collections with the guarantee that we do not participate to the deforestation of our planet.
Furthermore, in order to have adjustable and comfortable glasses, the temples are made in wooden cellulose acetate or in titanium for a better lightness.
Most of our eyewear collections use cellulose acetate. This material, made from cotton fibers, wood fibers and acetone, is not really eco-friendly.
At NatureEyes we are proud to say that we use almost exclusively recycled acetate made from used acetate frames and industrial acetate left-over, just like our recycled titanium.
