Mindful Materials: Plantix
The best sunnies for your summer
Designed to help you leave a positive impact wherever you go, the harrier are undoubtedly the best sunnies for your summer. Hand finished with our own Plantix Bio-acetate, these frames are lightweight, adjustable and can be recycled or composted when you are finished with them.
Better for You
Be a game-changer in the world of sustainable materials. Choosing better products and materials will lower your carbon footprint and our hypoallergenic Plantix is better for your skin compared to other plastic and nylon sunglasses. With added optimum resin lenses that enhance and improve your vision and pave the way for a greener, brighter future.
Extracted from plants
Unlike conventional acetate, which is derived from petroleum-based sources, Plantix is a type of Bio-Acetate, produced from naturally renewable materials. The sustainable production process uses acetic acid (vinegar) and plant-based polymers to create this magical material, which is then coloured with plant-based dyes.
One of the best things about Plantix Acetate is its biodegradability (but don’t worry, it won’t disappear on your face). Traditional plastics can take thousands of years to break down, littering landfills and oceans, whereas if Plantix ever ended up in nature (we hope not), it would naturally biodegrade leaving no harmful residues behind. And even better, Plantix can be recycled through our recycle scheme.
