Help save our planet by considering the consequences of our simple day to day decisions.
We need to make wasting our resources unacceptable in all aspects of our life. Every product we buy has an environmental footprint and could end up in landfill. The impact of plastic pollution on our oceans is becoming increasingly clear, having drastic impacts on marine life.
Recycling what we can reduces the amount of new materials we are making, and upcycling is a creative way to make old items into something more valuable. This could be reusing a jam jar as a candle holder, or using old tins as plant pots – the possibilities are endless!
Eye eye design and Funky readers are determined to do our bit. We have searched for and found an eco brand of reading glasses. The spectacles are made from 100% recycled plastic or rubber such as found being used for plastic bottles, HDPE containers and tyres.
The Brand is Parafina.
“These are the materials we use to create our eyewear. If we hadn’t recycled them, these products would have otherwise ended up in our oceans, burnt into our atmosphere or buried into our land. Now they can serve for a new purpose, which is to give our eyewear some of the amazing characteristics these materials have: flexibility, resistance, lightweight… It’s a win to our planet and a win to our glasses.”
Their impact so far is the use of 3541206 pet plastic bottles. 187506 HDPE plastic bottles and 5046 tyres.
The Power of Giving
Parafina believe in the power of giving and donate 5% of their income to their social project #ParafinaSocialProject. The project gives access to school to primary school children from a small neighbourhood of Asuncion, Paraguay.

We leave the last words to Parafina
