Round or square? Gold or green? Sunglasses are available in all shapes and sizes. But did you know that many sunglasses are made from materials that are bad for the environment? Fortunately, more and more durable sunglasses are designed and made nowadays. As with MASTHO Bamboo Sunglasses.
Pollution because of plastic sunglasses
Every year millions of plastic sunglasses are thrown away again. Something that leads to pollution, for example on the beaches. Therefore choose the right material that the sunglasses are made from. It is important that durable sunglasses are not produced with petroleum. Products made from bamboo and / or wood are better than products made with petroleum. A tree can grow back within ten years, petroleum only comes back after two hundred million years.
Despite this, eco-friendly sunglasses do not make a big difference in the total amount of plastic pollution. The share of raw materials is low in the production of sunglasses. Suppose that toys from China are made from bio-plastic, that would really make a difference. Unfortunately, that does not happen so quickly, because companies currently do not want to invest in these materials, because they are much more expensive.
MASTHO Bamboo Sunglasses
