Our most popular reader style now has a sustainable frame! The Evergreen readers for men and women is the same style as our highest selling reader set - the Booker. The frame is made of PET1 instead of polycarbonate, sourced from recycled water bottles. Each set of frames removes 2-3 water bottles from the waste cycle, and transforms single-use plastics into a longer lasting product. The temples are renewable and biodegradable bamboo.
Classic, light weight, and comfortable - what's not to love? Our Natural Earth sustainable reading glasses have BPA-free frames and temples. The hand-crafted bamboo temples are sourced from farms to prevent deforestation of bamboo groves. These unisex reading glasses are a popular design with clear lenses and come in a variety of diopters.
When our Natural Earth readers reach the end of their lifecycle, the elements can be separated into separate recycling. We recommend placing the PET1 plastic water bottle frames into bottle recycling. The acrylic lenses can be popped out and placed into plastic recycling. You can write "acrylic" on the lens with marker so they can be sorted appropriately. The metal hinges and screws can be placed into metal recycling. The composite and bamboo materials are biodegradable and can be composted. Industrial composting is the fastest way to break down wheat and tree bark composite, and backyard composting may take up to half a year to break down plant-based materials.
