TWO ECO-SENSITIVE COLLECTIONS
We have 2 eyewear collections within our CHILDE collection that are made from eco-sensitive frame materials.
The Hand Made Bio Acetate Eyewear frames are made from 100% bio-degradable Italian Mazzucchelli M49 Bio-Acetate made from organic compounds of wood and cotton pulp fibres. This premium organic M49 bio-acetate is built to last a lifetime as eyewear but is also 100% bio-degradable under controlled industrial composting conditions of International standard ISO 14855.
Our Plant Based Childe WiLDe Sunglasses frames are made from a plant based grilamid polymer made from 61% renewable resources. This polymer is petrochemical free and dramatically reduces carbon emissions.
We use premium nylon lenses that are lightweight, anti scratch and provide ultimate clarity in vision.
We don't use glass as it can shatter or break particularly when using as a lifestyle sunglass.
Our lens supplier is currently developing a bio-nylon lens which we hope to bring to market within 12-18 months.
Review our sustainable #Childeforlife replacement lens program so you can rock you Childe for life.
We use triple barrel stainless steel hinges as they are the strongest and most durable quality hinges.
We have a synthetic foldaway hard case provided with every CHILDE sunglass purchased from us online.
This is a generic hard case that fits every style that we produce so we are not producing multiple cases that need to fit multiple styles.
This was the most considered and sustainable option in providing quality eyewear care.
The Poly Bags we use for our shipping packaging are by Better Packaging Co. This is a bio-degradable home compostable bag.
Our CHILDE sunglass packaging is environmentally considered-
In consideration to the environment, we do not create extra packaging, excess waste or unnecessary plastic for or within our packaging.
Our sunglass socks or pouches are made from recycled PET plastic bottles. These pouches are also great for cleaning your glasses. Use clean water only and do not add sand :)
Our sunglass cardboard boxes can be recycled.
We only print with plant-based inks on the packaging boxes so no petroleum inks are used by CHILDE.
Any plastic used in our packaging is compostable.
