MADE OF SUNSHINE, EARTH, & HARD WORK.
Instead of digging down for petroleum-based plastics, our frames are created from sustainable, agriculturally-derived materials. The biodegradable resin originates as the castor bean (Ricinus communis), which is widely grown throughout tropical regions. Offering a purity unrivaled by traditional ABS resin, our castor-based frames are more resilient and durable than those made of petroleum. With a higher strength-to-weight ratio than synthetic material, our frames are made of the lightest, strongest, and most earth-friendly materials available in the world.
WASTE NOT, WANT NOT.
We pack just what is needed to get Native Eyewear into your hands and into the backcountry. At every turn, we take the same approach to packaging our product as we do packing our backpacks; each necessary component should serve as many functions as necessary and be constructed as efficiently as possible. The packing materials are made from recycled shopping bags, plastic water bottles, soy-based inks, and recycled cardboard.
