The environment preservation is the focus of our project and therefore we decided to take a sustainable approach while choosing the materials we used for our sunglasses.
Our sunglasses are made with M49 Bioplastic, which is both Bio-based and biodegradable and grant to our product a whole different level of sustainability.
The term "bio-based" refers to the material's natural and renewable nature.
The proportion of the product derived from renewable sources is stated in percentage value and indicates how much of the product is derived from renewable sources and how much from fossil sources. The Bioplastic we use reaches almost 70% of renewable sources in its components.
The most common misconception about biodegradability is that if a substance is biodegradable, putting it on the ground would degrade and disappear over time. Biodegradation is influenced by the chemical nature of the material to be biodegraded. To be considered biodegradable, a plastic material's degree of biodegradation must reach 90% in no more than 6 months of incubation.
After just 115 days of incubation, the degree of biodegradation of M49 approaches 90%, indicating that it is fully biodegradable.
We leave nothing to chance!
KAMASI, DON’T LOOK AWAY
