ECO® biobased frames are unique because they are made with 63% castor seeds – making them sustainable while lightweight and comfortable. The frames are colorful and playful and even having matching magnetic clip availability. ECO’s recycled collection is unique because the frames are made with 95% recycled materials, making them sustainable while lightweight and comfortable.
According to the CEO of MODO, Alessandro Lanaro, ECO® was “born recycled” in 2009, with the start of the program ONE FRAME – ONE TREE, in partnership with the NGO Trees for the Future. Since then, ECO® has donated and planted a tree for every frame sold. So far, ECO® has planted over 1.5 million trees!
“We have a responsibility to leave the world a better place than how we found it. Together with Trees for the Future, ONE FRAME – ONE TREE is making a positive impact not only on the environment but for the people.”
That’s enough trees to remove the carbon emitted from New York City over 2 days. Those of you who have been to Vision Expo East know that is one tall task. Since today is Earth Day, we tip our hats to MODO and ECO eyewear for doing more than their share in making our world just a little bit better and more ecological.
