Introducing Birdies - plant-based eyewear for children
Designed to be virtually indestructible, they’re bendable, throwable, and come with impact and shatter-resistant lenses. Oh, and best of all, they are made from plants. Available as Sunglasses with 100% UV protection or with Blue Light Blocking lenses for screen time.
The real magic bean
Birdies are made from processed castor beans, a new (and old) natural polymer that is lighter than aluminium and strong enough to be used in vehicles. These frames are virtually indestructible. Designed to withstand
rough treatment, they’re bendable, throwable, and come with impact and shatter-resistant lenses. The low-density material is 10 times stronger than the plastics in car bumpers, and 13 times stronger than common bioplastics. The perfect material for inquisitive minds.
Castor plants grow extremely fast and do not require pesticides or chemicals to thrive. Just like children.
