Sustainable glasses brands disrupting the market
Plastic, we now know, is definitely not fantastic. But it's quietly been incorporated into so many products that going plastic-free can take quite a bit of thought.

From recycled marine waste to upcycled retro specs and plenty of biodegradable and plastic-free materials, read on for the best sustainable eyewear brands.
