Here you'll find responsibly made frames in both bio and recycled acetate. The difference? Bio acetate is produced using bio-based plasticisers — made from renewable sources — instead of oil-based ones. Recycled acetate is made from pre-consumer waste — off-cuts from production that are collected and made into new frames.

Bio acetate is like regular acetate, except it's mixed with bio-based plasticisers — made from renewable sources — instead of oil-based ones. It’s recyclable and biodegradable, too. We’re increasing production of bio acetate frames each season.
You'll also find frames made from recycled acetate, here. The difference? Recycled acetate is made from pre-consumer waste — off-cuts from production that are melted down, formed into new acetate sheets and cut into frames.
One of the kindest things we can do for our planet is to make the most of what we already have. For us, that means extending the life of our frames by giving our glasses another chance to shine with Reframe. Great quality eyewear at a lower environmental cost.
