Making tomorrow's eyewear from yesterday's waste

Did you know that in the UK millions of pairs of cheap sunglasses and spectacles are thrown away each year?

We really hate that. Our mission is to help eliminate eyewear waste from landfill, reducing the demand for virgin materials and create a circular manufacturing process where possible.

If you have a pair of Birds (or any other brand frames) that have reached the end of their lifespan we can help you recycle them

How does it work?

1. Collect your unwanted frames

2. Sign up to our recycle scheme.

3. With your free returns label, package up and send us your old frames.

4. We'll recycle the frames and keep you in the loop with our future projects.


Can i send any brand or glasses or sunglasses frames?

Yes, we accept all brands of eyewear.

What happens with the material?

Once collected, the waste is broken down and separated by material. Plastics are cleaned and pelleted to be recycled into new products. Metal materials are sent for smelting and conversion to new alloys.

How many frames can i send?

As many as you like, however there is only one discount voucher allowed per order.

What products are you making with the recycled material.

We are currently building up stocks of raw materials, sign up to our mailing list to be the first to know.

What can i spend the voucher on?

The voucher discount code gives £20 off any order. Not applicable for sale items. Only one voucher can be used per order.

Do i need a printer?

Don't have a printer? No problem, simply write a note that you'd like to use the recycle scheme and include your name and email address. Send your old frames to:

Bird Eyewear - Recycle Scheme, Hybrid House, Exeter, EX4 8DS
