MonkeyGlasses has launched the Trust collection, a range of frames made from biodegradable cotton fibre material and 100% recyclable stainless steel.
The Trust collection is described by MonkeyGlasses as ‘simple, slim and sustainable’ because the materials used prolong the life of the spectacles.
The sustainable eyewear company asks the consumer to trust that buying sustainable products makes a difference to the future of the planet.
Designer and CEO at MonkeyGlasses, Mai-Britt Seaton, told OT: “We have added some new frames in children and teen sizes because sustainability should be for everyone, no matter the size, age or budget.”
“These frames are small editions of some of our bestselling stainless steel styles, Nanno and Lacy, since teenagers and bigger kids want to look and feel like small adults,” Ms Seaton added.
In support of the launch, MonkeyGlasses commissioned a photoshoot with Danish street photographer, Roberts Osis. Shot in Copenhagen, the images feature two generations born into the same world, with different ways of living, and a shared respect for mother nature.
All MonkeyGlasses frames are designed and developed in line with the company’s ‘closed loop’ philosophy, which ensures that the life cycle of its frames provide a sustainable choice for conscious consumers.
