Sustainable sunglasses for you who care about the world we live in
With PREGO you only get sustainable sunglasses and sustainable glasses. So that we together can take care of the environment and our planet. In our view, it is a natural responsibility to take when you are an international company.
Therefore, we are also proud that we have entered into a partnership with Plastic Bank who do their utmost to ensure a more sustainable future by collecting plastic before it ends up in the oceans.
We stand with big brands like IBM, HUGO BOSS and Henkel to remove ocean bound plastic
The partnership with Plastic Bank is very close to our hearts. We are proud to work with strong brands like IBM, HUGO BOSS and Henkel to remove plastic from the oceans through an organization like Plastic Bank. It is precisely by teaming up that we can really make a difference. You are also part of this project. As our customer, you also help to ensure that the plastic does not end up in the oceans - every single time you buy a pair of sustainable sunglasses or sustainable glasses from us.
For every sunglass sold, we ensure that 4 kg of plastic does not end up in the oceans.
It corresponds to 200 0.5l plastic bottles.
Our partnership means that 4 kg of plastic is collected per glasses we sell. We always make sure that this is validated - so you can be sure that your and our contributions will actually make a difference. Because it does.
At PREGO we are very ambitious, and therefore we have publicly guaranteed to collect 20,000 kg of plastic within 2 years. That's the equivalent of a million half-liter plastic bottles.
Sustainability is also about the people
Especially the people who collect the plastic before it ends up in the ocean. Plastic Bank makes sure that the people who collect the plastic are local. In that way, there is also a social aspect of the initiative that we think makes such good sense.
Because the work of the Plastic Bank not only saves the oceans from plastic, but at the same time helps the locals with meaningful work. And a way for locals to elevate their living standards.
We believe that the project social plastic is full circle. And that is our way of helping both our planet and our fellow human beings. Sustainability is in our opinion very much about people and their living conditions - sustainability is very much about people being able to support themselves. And we want to contribute to that.
Producing sustainable glasses is not something we just do for fun; we've seen, it makes a different
When you buy a pair of sustainable sunglasses at PREGO, you contribute to collecting 4 kg of plastic.
It can be a little interesting to think about as there is no plastic in exactly the glasses you buy from us. But plastic is and remains a big part of the problem when it comes to sustainability. That is why, in our opinion, it is also an important place to take action. Because it really makes a difference. Both because the plastic does not reach the ocean, but also in terms of the locals, who get a helping hand in a life that may not always be as easy.
At PREGO you get total transparency
We are an international company that also has our products made internationally. This makes high demands on both us and our partners, so you can be sure of a quality product that is made under proper conditions.
It requires total transparency throughout our supply chain. And this requires that we consider every single part of our products-from the nose piece to the eyeglass frame itself. We need to know exactly how and under what conditions each part is manufactured, so that we can calmly guarantee you proper products that are made under proper conditions.
To ensure you as a costumer, our auditing of our supply 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 vouch for our products and that in our production, both sustainability and the people in the factories are taken into account.
At PREGO you get good quality products. Products that last a long time, and not just simply contribute to the increasing buy-and-throw-away culture. So if you, like us, also believe that we must all do ours to take care of our planet 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 don't work with Plastic Bank because we feel guilty. In fact, there is no plastic in our glasses at all. We make sustainable sunglasses and sustainable glasses that are made of acetate. We have chosen to produce our glasses in acetate, as this material effects the environment less than, for example, plastic does. You can read more about the difference between acetate and plastic, and our sustainable sunglasses in our frequently asked questions here.
Although our sustainable sunglasses and sustainable glasses pollute less than plastic sunglasses, we still recommend that you return your old PREGO glasses or sunglasses where you bought it when you are done using them.
Because when you return your old glasses, we make sure that they can get new life by passing them on to Syn for sagen. Who donates the glasses to developing countries.
In this way, we can all stand together to take care of the environment. And we believe that even the smallest things are useful if we all lift together.
