Interested in non-toxic and hypoallergenic materials in your children's glasses? Want the most eco-friendly glasses you can find? Look no more as Modo has presented the first Eco Kids ophthalmic collection for children between the ages of 8 and 12 designed to match the Eco collection but with a playful touch.
“We are thrilled to enter the kids category with Eco. It is certainly a great tool to educate children on actions that can improve our planet,” said Alessandro Lanaro, CEO of Modo. “We feel very proud of leading the sustainable category in the eyewear industry.”
With over 11 styles, Eco Kids have created a new line of glasses that have specs such as a soft oval made of recycled acetate or thin square unisex frames made of recycled stainless steel.
The collection reflects the many features of Eco which is an UL Environment Validation certifying the products are made from a minimum of 95% recycled stainless steel or acetate.
When you are ready to exchange the old glasses, there is a system to donate unwanted frames via a mail in recycling program. Each frame comes with a case made with recycled polyethylene terephthalate (soda bottles) and a box made with recycled paper and printed with soy ink. Also, with each purchase, a tree is planted with Trees for the Future which is a non-profit.
