Environmentally conscious types will be able to see a little more clearly now thank to Awear, an upcoming line of eco-friendly eyeglasses from Charmant. Composed of recyclable bio-based plastic, plus biodegradable demo lenses, each ergonomically fitted frame boasts reduced carbon-dioxide emissions and water use compared with conventional eyewear. “Awear is different and exceptional from any other eyewear collection,” Michele Ziss, director of product and marketing at Charmant, said in a statement. “The materials and production processes have distinctive properties and a unique story because they are environmentally friendly.”
