Choose recycled eyewear
EyeBuyDirect launched 5 to See, a collection of affordable eco-friendly eyewear for men and women made of upcycled plastic water bottles, helping consumers make a responsible choice without sacrificing style.
1 million single use plastic bottles are purchased every minute.Source
- Each pair of glasses is made out of 5 upcycled water bottles which could otherwise end up in the ocean
- The 5 to See collection is affordable and accessible to consumers
- Proceeds from sales are donated to 1% for the Planet
- There are environmental costs associated with the collection, transportation, and cleaning of PET bottles before they can be recycled
- Once the plastic has been turned into a new product, it is very difficult to recycle again
- Buying recycled plastic products is better than buying virgin plastic, but it does not necessarily impact our throwaway culture
Making a difference
Each pair of EyeBuyDirect's 5 to See glasses help remove 5 plastic bottles from the ocean, and with every order placed, one pair of glasses is donated to someone in need.
