WHAT MAKES MORE SUSTAINABLE SUNGLASSES?
OTIS is committed to creating more sustainable sunglasses than regular plastic alternatives. Our range is a testament to our dedication to environmental responsibility and our commitment to providing the best sustainable sunglasses in Australia.
Since OTIS was founded in 2000, we've always used mineral glass lenses that are scratch resistant, optically correct and endlessly recyclable. As part of our sustainability mission, we also had a vision to offer EcoAceate frame options that biodegrade at their end of life in landfill. There’s also our EcoGrilamid materials, which are made from 50% renewable resources, using castor oil instead of petrochemicals for a long-lasting, lightweight material.
CHOOSING MORE ETHICAL SUNGLASSES
It’s often hard to tell the normal options from more ethical sunglasses. One badge that makes a difference, is that OTIS is B Corp certified. As a B Corp we're part of a global community of businesses that meet high standards of social and environmental impact.
We proudly accept the responsibility this gold-standard expects from companies to genuinely use their business as a force for good with their people, their products, and the planet.
Our mission to make more ethical, sustainable sunglasses is a reflection of our values as a B Corp certified company. We believe in creating products that not only serve our customers but also contribute positively to society and the environment. Sustainability isn't just a buzzword for us; it's an integral part of who we are.
MINERAL GLASS MEANS MORE ECO-FRIENDLY POLARIZED SUNGLASSES
Our more eco-friendly polarized sunglasses are designed for those who seek style without compromising on their environmental values. These lenses, crafted from endlessly recyclable mineral glass, provide superior clarity and are scratch-resistant, ensuring long-lasting quality. They’re also made from natural, non-toxic materials like sand and soda ash, which are harmless to humans and animals alike. For sunglasses frames that will also biodegrade in landfill at their end of life, check out our EcoAcetate Polarized sunglasses.
