However, some producers and opticians are doing well by offering eco-responsible glasses. With frames that are more innovative than the others, there is something for everyone. Defend the values you hold dear by choosing your next frame. If you are interested in the origin of manufacture, the composition or the ethics: you will find what you are looking for. In this article you will find a selection of recycled glasses and vegan glasses for an overview of what you could find.

Biodegradable hair glasses: Hair Glasses
A real concept in its own right, as you will have understood! Hair glasses are an idea as far-fetched as it is ecological. After having recovered the falls of hair in salons and thanks to a resin containing plants, the hair glasses thus see the day.
