OKIA PRESENTS AN UPGRADED VERSION OF RESHAPE™,THE EYEWEAR COLLECTION MADE FROM UPCYCLED PLASTIC BOTTLES TO BE BIODEGRADED IN 5 YEARS
OKIA is persistently pursuing the sustainable future of eyewear to help relieve global plastic crisis and build a better world for the next generations. A million plastic bottles are brought around the world every minute. However, it takes 450 years for a plastic water bottle to decompose in a landfill.
By redesigning the life-cycling of plastic water bottles and upcycling bottles into eyewear, OKIA has begun chapter one of a new sustainable endeavour: this was the successful launch of Reshape™ – upcycled plastic bottle eyewear – in 2019. With Reshape™, OKIA can transform 5 plastic bottles into a pair of eco eyewear that is durable, flexible and eco-friendly.
This year, OKIA is proud to announce the unprecedented invention of a biodegradable plastic that is also created by upcycled plastic bottles. The upgraded version of Reshape™ can ultimately break down into carbon dioxide, water and biomass after a 5-year biodegradation process. Not only the frame and lenses of the new Reshape™ collection are totally biodegradable: every piece, indeed, is packed with an upcycled plastic cleaning cloth and an upcycled plastic eyewear pouch.
Reshape™ represents not only a marvellous success for OKIA but also a great milestone in sustainable eyewear industry. Let’s all make a difference to look cool by doing good!
