Antonio Verde makes sunglasses ecological- For people who care about more than just the good look. The unusual sunglasses made of bamboo or wood, as well as recycled plastic, are not only sustainable, but also produced under fair conditions. The small company has thus occupied a market segment.
Fair and vegan
Founded in Belgium in 2013, Antonio Verde stands for a combination of different demands. The small but global fashion manufacturer sells sunglasses in Italian designs, has its headquarters in Belgium and its production in Taiwan. Nevertheless, Antonio Verde is a regular participant in international eco-fairs such as the Ethical Fashion Show in Berlin. Because instead of normal PVC, thes use natural materials to a large extent. Where plastic is unavoidable, the company makes use of recycled material: the employees in Taiwan recycle discarded Samsung computers. So you can be sure about Antonio Verde models: What's inside is environmentally friendly.
And the working conditions are strictly fair trade. No child's hand was involved in the production of your eco-sunglasses. All employees must be of age and receive fair wages and social security. In addition, they do not work more than a fixed number of hours and have the weekend off. Furthermore, Antonio Verde glasses and accessories are vegan: all products are free of animal ingredients. No animals or substances from animals have been used in the manufacturing process either.
The range includes environmentally friendly sunglasses, reading glasses and non-breakable glasses. The individual collections have sonorous Italian names: Roma, Bologna or Venice. This makes you think of holidays, of sun - and of harmful UV radiation. But all sunglasses from Antonio Verde have UV protection 400, which not only makes them look cool, but also does something good for your eyes.
Antonio Verde focuses on bamboo frames with stainless steel joints. Bamboo grows back particularly quickly, which makes the sunglasses particularly environmentally friendly. In addition, the light material creates a trendy contrast to the darker frame. Depending on the series, the sunglasses are produced in different variations. For example, the Genoa model offers you 15 different models: you can choose not only the colour of your frame but also the lenses, which are of course also made of recycled plastic.
The wooden models of the Wood range are quite extraordinary. Here you will find hangers made of wood - also here always with an eye on the environment. All products in this range are FSC-certified, guaranteeing that they come from responsibly managed forests. The unbreakable sunglasses are made entirely from recycled plastic. You can stretch and bend them to your liking. Additionally, they are antibacterial and anti-allergic.
Are you missing a case? At Antonio Verde you will find cases among the accessories. They are also made of bamboo and are therefore already visually striking: Unlike ordinary spectacle cases, they are not flat, but round. Find the trendy eco sunglasses by Antonio Verde here in our Online Shop!
