Other than comfort and a cute frame, all I look for in eyeglasses is that they be lightweight and durable. I never considered the “green” aspect until I heard about the durable, eco-friendly lenses from Airwear.
Airwear eyeglass lenses are made by Essilor, the leading manufacturer of optical lenses in the United States. They’re lighter, and more impact- and scratch- resistant than standard plastic lenses.
Made of polycarbonate, not only are these lenses 43% lighter and 10 times more impact resistant than standard plastic lenses, they also offer complete UV protection and are virtually unbreakable. Since they’re so durable, Airwear lenses are ideal for children’s eyewear or for those that participate in sports and lead active lifestyles. I can’t afford to buy a new pair of glasses too often, so I want the ones I have to last me for a long time, and I’m confident these lenses will!
In addition to increased durability, the lenses are made using environmentally conscious practices such as 100% recycled water and 100% recyclable packaging, and the company re-purposes unused materials in other industries. With these new, green practices Airwear conserves millions of gallons of water and eliminates 570,000 pounds of plastic waste every year!
