Pela, maker of compostable alternatives to plastic, is expanding their collection of eco-friendly products to now include the world’s first sunglasses and blue light lenses that biodegrade.
Pela Vision frames are not only sustainable and stylish, they’re also the perfect product to purchase this summer.
“At Pela, we’re always looking at new ways to reduce waste and do better,” said Pela Founder and VP of Sustainability, Jeremy Lang. “We actively research areas in the sustainability space, find gaps and develop products to fill those gaps. This is what we’ve done with Pela Vision, where the frames and lenses will biodegrade in a landfill environment.”
Out With the Old, In With the New
Conventional frames are typically made out of plastic and a combination of materials. This can often make them difficult to collect and recycle—which will result in them ending up in landfills.
With Pela Vision, when it comes time to toss the sunglasses pair out, everything—including the lenses—will biodegrade much faster compared to regular plastic sunglasses. And best of all, it won’t harm the Earth in the process.
Stylish & Sustainable Frames
Pela Vision offers full UVA/UVB protection, and features two styles of frames; Sulu, a beachy, Californian look and Bonito, inspired by the city. Both are available in a variety of colors.
