Italian Plant-Based Acetate - How It's Made

Our Mission

Sustainability

We're finding new techniques using plant-based solutions to reduce our impact on the environment.

It starts with using organic materials, and carries through to carbon neutral shipping methods and responsible tree planting.

Plant-Based Materials

HANDMADE ITALIAN CELLULOSE ACETATE

Our frames are made from organic cotton and wood pulp, and this organic plant-based material is handmade in Italy by a worldwide leader in the manufacturing of Cellulose Acetate.

Apart from their good looks, did we mention they're also extremely comfortable, lightweight, and hypoallergenic!?

Optimum Optical Quality

CR-39 POLARIZED LENSES

When we couldn't find a lens that met our standards of ultimate comfort with the best-in-class optical quality, we invested in our own.

They offer premium optical quality, significantly reduce eye-strain and glare, are lighter than glass, all while being made from a higher quality material compared to polycarbonate lenses found in most other brands.

Hypoallergenic

NICKEL-FREE STAINLESS STEEL

Stainless steel is by nature 100% recyclable, almost indestructible and extremely strong. However, there are types of stainless steel with a high percentage of nickel which can cause some serious allergic reactions to our skin.

The stainless steel used in our sunglasses are mostly nickel-free, meaning it's hypoallergenic. Oh, and being nickel-free also means it won't corrode = no rust = happy days!

Careful Considerations

RECYCLED PACKAGING

Even our packaging is made from recycled materials, and is 100% recyclable. This includes the box that your SummerEyez arrive in, to the protective packaging that they're shipped in.

Because everything needs a second chance.

Carbon Reduction

CARBON NEUTRAL DELIVERY

Utilising express delivery has a cost on the environment, and we want to make sure that we're doing our part to offset our carbon footprint.

By opting into Australia Post's carbon neutral offset, and and DHL's GoGreen initiative, we ensure that the pollution caused by getting you your SummerEyez as fast as possible are offset by purchasing carbon credits.

3 TREES PLANTED WITH EVERY ORDER

With every order you will be supporting reforestation, renewables and helping reduce the global carbon footprint. By planting trees, we help by removing greenhouse gases from the atmosphere.

At SummerEyez, we're passionate about sustainability. By planting trees we lower the overall impact that we are having on our environment.
