where cleanups have taken place
How your purchase cleans up plastic waste
The plastic cleanup program is our way of offsetting our material consumption during production, ensuring that even though we create plastic waste, we are recycling more material than what we generate.
Our partner Empower have applied the long-standing success of the Scandinavian plastic bottle recycling system. By giving plastic a value, people are incentivized to recycle it, while also giving impoverished communities a working salary.
For every pair of eyewear sold, 1 kg of plastic waste is cleaned up and recycled.
Discover your individual impact
Using a global deposit system for plastic waste, every donation is fully traceable to the exact time and location where the plastic is collected on your behalf.
All our customers will receive an update following a purchase with the amount, the location and images of the cleanup they helped fund.
