If you think eyeglasses can't be as ~*trendy*~ as their tinted counterparts, think again! There's no denying that there are some seriously cool and stylish pairs out there. Aside from giving you a literally clearer vision, a set of well-chosen frames can totally elevate your look with minimal effort!
Sunnies Studios has always been one of our go-to brands of chic frames with an affordable price point, more so when they recently announced that they will be halting their use of virgin plastic for their frames. ICYDK, it's a direct resin that is produced using natural gas or crude oil and without any recyclable materials. By switching to more renewable materials, Sunnies Studios will be reducing their plastic waste and carbon emission while still being able to produce the quality eyewear we have grown to love.
As of today, 77 percent of their new developments are already made from more *responsible* materials, such as biodegradable acetate, plant-based plastic, and recycled polyester.
Check out some of the frames you can purchase on their site that are made from earth-friendly materials:
