Recycled glasses from Italian design

Being a bit of a four-eyes myself I appreciate the importance of finding the right glasses. They are probably the biggest image builder around. Show me your glasses and I’ll tell you who you are, so to speak. Well, I suppose you will see my need to share this cool collaboration with you: Transitions Optical, the world’s leading manufacturer of adaptive lenses (you know, those prescription lenses that offer UV protection when needed), is now showcasing Transitions lenses in eco-friendly frames designed by boutique eyewear firm Modo Eyewear. All frames in this ECO (Earth-Conscious Optics) collection are made with 95% recycled stainless steel and plastic.

Transitions ECOWhat’s more, within the program called One Frame, One Tree ECO plants a tree for each frame sold together with Trees for the Future, a non-profit organization helping communities in developing countries to plant and restore trees. Even the packaging consists of recycled paper and frames are shipped in a pouch of organic cotton with a return envelope for customers to donate their old frames.
In partnership with OneSight, unwanted spectacles will be distributed to those in need around the world.

ECO has a broad selection for both men and women, so let your next pair be an ECO pair.
