Sustainability is no longer an afterthought, it is the driving force of everything that The Animals Observatory does. This is why the co-creation between Yuma Labs and The Animals Observatory is a dream come true.
Together we created these colourful and funky sunglasses for their new spring collection of 2022.
The sunglasses frame is made from ECONYL® regenerated nylon. It's a flexible recycled material made from a combination of fishing nets, old carpets and pre-consumer waste. This material has the potential to be recycled infinitely, without ever losing its quality.
It reduces the global warming impact of nylon by up to 90% compared with the material from oil.
The sunglasses are designed for easy disassembly and recycling, equipped with polarized 100% UV protection lenses.
The sunglasses includes a send back case with an integrated shipping label.
The send-back shipping label is pre-paid and works from anywhere on earth. Just drop it in a postbox like you post a normal post card and it will come back to us for disassembly and recycling.
The sunglasses comes with a cleaning cloth made from recycled PET plastic.
The most sustainable sunglasses are those that you use as long as possible. We use recycled plastic to create fully removable frames that can be disassembled and recycled at the end of their life. Style them your way and then simply send them back to Yuma Labs once you’re ready to recycle and help the circular economy.
If you decide to part ways with your sunglasses, return them to us and we will recycle them for you.
We accept sunglasses for recycling from this collection from March 2023. Leave your contact details to get notified when your sunglasses become eligible for recycling.
