Recycled Plastic
Recycling is the process of taking an otherwise-discarded item or material and cleaning, sorting, and breaking it down into its basic form (such as fibers or pellets). This material is then used to produce new items. Recycling keeps useful materials from being discarded in landfills, prevents resource extraction due to the creation of new materials, and provides a new life for used items. Recycling can utilize both pre-consumer waste (materials left over from production) or post-consumer materials (used clothing, empty water bottles, etc). Recycled plastic utilizes salvaged post-industrial plastic scraps and post-consumer products such as water bottles and other plastic containers, and transforms them into new products. The containers are sorted, crushed, and then heated to form resins, which are liquid plastics that can harden into new shapes. These resins can be molded and used to create anything from carpet to outdoor furniture. Recycling plastic lowers the amount of petroleum extracted and the production of greenhouse gasses associated with first-time plastic production. Plus, by using these existing materials, we're benefiting from the original energy and resources spent to create them in the first place, while diverting waste from the landfill.

I was so excited to receive these! I've been putting off trying blue-light glasses, but noticed quickly when I started wearing these at my desk that my eyes weren't tearing up during the day. I do think they've also reduced my headaches. The trouble is, I also noticed quickly that these glasses left a nice brownish black residue on my face where they rested on my nose, which finally stopped happening after I washed them twice. Strange, but not a big deal. Three months later though, the frames have cracked on both sides! These glasses don't leave my desk, so nothing traumatic has happened to them - I don't know exactly what the deal is, but it looks like it's the construction. There's another seam at the bridge of the nose that looks like it might also crack, so... this is a bummer. I really was rooting for these! The shape is perfect!

Hi Laula, we are so sorry that these glasses did not hold up as well as expected! This isn't feedback that we've gotten before, which leads me to think this pair may have been defective. Our team will be in touch shortly to assist with a solution!
