The DTC retailer is celebrating Earth month early with the launch of biodegradable frames
LOS ANGELES, March 6, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — Eyebuydirect, the leading online retailer for prescription eyewear, has launched a new sustainable solution to eyewear. The collection, available now, is comprised of eco-friendly, plant-based materials that make the frames 50% biodegradable.
The Bohemia Renewal collection features 38 new earth-friendly styles, with soft colors, natural finishes, and an eclectic edge. While other plastics such as bags or bottles take 60-1,000 years to biodegrade, eyewear in this collection decomposes in as quickly as 150 days.
“As a brand, we value our customers’ feedback when it comes to the types of eyewear they want to shop, and right now, sustainability is top of mind for everyone,” said Branden Maes, Senior Brand Marketing Manager at Eyebuydirect. “With this new collection, our customers can express their individuality, and above all, their values when it comes to protecting the environment.”
All frames in the collection are made using materials derived from cellulose acetate flakes, extracted from cotton and wood pulp in addition to bio-based plasticizers. Unlike other plasticizers used in eyewear, bio-based plasticizers are environmentally friendly, non-toxic, and maintain flexibility at varying temperatures.
