Plastic waste in the UK is a huge problem, each year, 4.9 million metric tons of plastic is produced, and three-quarters of it is disposed of as rubbish. We are upcycling this plastic, making sunglasses better and having fun while doing it. We challenged ourselves to not only make the world's most sustainable sunglasses but also make sunglasses we want to wear.
We think you would look incredible in a pair of FacePlant® sunglasses too.
Sustainability is at the very core of everything we do; we don't just make eco-conscious eyewear; we think about every step of our process and its impact on the planet. We made a conscious decision right at the beginning to ensure our business positively impacts the environment with an aim to become a 360° net-zero business. Every aspect of our supply chain is carefully considered from the factory we use, the raw materials, the welfare of our workers, the power we use, the couriers we deliver with and the fulfilment company that ships our products.
We are confident you will love the quality of our sustainable sunglasses; after all, we designed and made them for ourselves first and foremost, now we are sharing them with you. One pair of FacePlant® sunglasses takes five recycled plastic bottles to make each frame; this material is incredibly durable and flexible. Even better though, when your sunglasses come to the end of their life, the material is fully recyclable.
