We are plastic bank partners
Because plastic neither belongs in your glasses - nor in the sea
Sustainable sunglasses for you who also worries you about the world we live in
With us you only get sustainable sunglasses and sustainable glasses. So together we can look after the environment and our globe. In our eyes, it is a natural responsibility to take when you, like us, are an international company.
Therefore, we are also proud that we have entered into a partnership with Plastic Bank, which to that extent does theirs to ensure a more sustainable transition by collecting plastic before it ends up in the world seas.
We stand shoulder against shoulder with big brands like IBM, Hugo Boss and Henkel about removing the plastic from the world seas
The Partnership with Plastic Bank is very close to our hearts. We are proud to cooperate with strong brands such as IBM, Hugo Boss and Henkel to remove the plastic from the world seas via an organization like Plastic Bank. It is precisely about to team up that we can seriously make a difference. You are also involved in this project. As our customer, you also help ensure that the plastic does not end up in the world seas - every time you buy a pair of sustainable sunglasses or sustainable glasses with us.
For each sunglasses, we ensure that 2 kg of plastic does not end up in the world seas.
It corresponds to 100 half -liter plastic bottles.
Absolutely low practical is that 2 kg of plastic is collected per, glasses we sell. We make a lot of sense that this is validated and safe for you as a consumer - so you can be sure that your and our contributions are actually useful.
Sustainability is also about people
Especially the people who collect the plastic in before it comes out into our world gardens. Plastic Bank makes sure that the people who collect the plastic are local. In this way, there is also a social aspect of the initiative that we think makes so good sense.
Because Plastic Bank's work not only saves the world seas from plastic, but at the same time the locals help with meaningful work that can help self -help. And a way in which locals can elevate their living standards.
In our eyes the project is Social plastic Full Circle. And that is our way of helping both our planet and our fellow human beings. In our book, sustainability is very much about people and their living conditions - sustainability is also that people can support themselves. And we would like to contribute to that.
Producing sustainable glasses is not something we just do for fun; We have seen it works
When you buy a pair of sustainable sunglasses at Prego, you contribute to collecting 2 kg of plastic.
It can be a bit of fun to think about when there is no plastic in exactly the spectacles you buy from us. But plastic is and will be a big part of the problem when it comes to sustainability. Therefore, in our eyes it is also an important place to put in. Because it really benefits. Both practically because the plastic does not reach the sea, but also human for the locals who get a hand in a life that may not always be easy.
At Prego you get total transparency
We are an international company that also gets our products in internationally. It places high demands on both us and our partners, so you can be sure of a quality product made under proper conditions.
It requires total transparency throughout our supplier chain. And it requires us to decide on each part of our products - from the nose doups to the eyeglass itself. We need to know exactly how and under what conditions each part is manufactured so that we can guarantee you proper products made under proper conditions.
To ensure you as a consumer, our auditing of our supplier chain is alpha and omega. You need to know 100 %what you get and from where you get it. And we need to know that we can guarantee our products and that the production of them has taken into account both sustainability and the people at the factories.
At Prego you get good quality products. Products that last long and not just contribute to the rising buy-and-throw-away culture. So if you, like us, also believe that we must all do ours to look after our land and each other, then you have come to the right place.
We use cotton -based acetate instead of plastic
Although our glasses are not made of plastic, we still feel that we have a responsibility. We do not cooperate with Plastic Bank because we have a bad conscience. In fact, there is no plastic in our glasses at all. We make sustainable sunglasses and sustainable glasses. They are made of acetate. We have chosen to produce our glasses in acetate as this material burdens our environment less than, for example, plastic does. You can read more about the difference between acetate and plastic and our sustainable sunglasses in our Often asked questions here.
Although our sustainable sunglasses and sustainable glasses are polluting less than plastic sunglasses, we still recommend that you deliver your prego glasses or sunbars where you bought it.
Because when you hand over your old glasses, we make sure they can get new life by passing them on to view of the matter, which gives people in developing countries new vision and changes their lives. You can read more about View of the case here.
That way we can all stand together to look after the environment. And we believe that even the smallest things are useful if we all lift in bunch.
