About the maker
Be eco friendly and look cool while doing it. These sunglass frames are made from recycled plastic! But there's nothing secondhand about the lenses- they are German, polarized and UV protectant. Need prescription lenses- take them to your optometrist. These sunglasses by Parafina are also super light weight, water resistant and helmet friendly. Pretty cool, huh?
Made from recycled HDPE (High Density Polyethylene) plastic from detergent, shampoo and similar containers.
