Today is a very proud day for us here at Greenlife Online - we've just launched a new range of men’s and women’s sunglasses, all made from 100% recycled materials.
The sunglasses are made by Blue Planet Eyewear, founded in California in 2009. Greenlife Online is Australia’s first company to supply the Blue Planet brand of sunglasses.
The sunglasses are made from a range of materials including plastic, metal, fabric and even bamboo – all sourced from the excess materials that are discarded during traditional eyewear manufacturing, and would otherwise end up in landfill. The sunglasses include polarised lenses and offer 100% UV protection.
We’re unbelievably excited about this new brand. At Greenlife Online we've been searching for completely recycled sunglasses to add to our range for some time, but there didn’t appear to be anywhere in Australia to source them. The recycled eyewear from Blue Planet comes in classic frame styles that everyone will be familiar with - such as the Wayfarer, Clubmaster, and Aviator. With our new product range we give Australians a choice to wear popular styles, made in a completely sustainable way.
Aside from making eco-friendly sunglasses, Blue Planet Eyewear also donates a free pair of reading glasses to people in need around the world as part of their ‘Visualise Change’ program which started in 2012, with over 75,000 pairs of glasses already donated! We love working with brands that make eco friendly products but then also go that extra mile.
Australians love a great pair of sunglasses, and we love to get behind great companies that have a big heart - and Blue Planet Eyewear fit into that perfectly.
The recycled sunglasses range in price from $69 - $79, including free Australian delivery.
