SUSTAINABILITY

THE EARTH IS WHAT WE ALL HAVE IN COMMON" - Wendell Berry

During this crucial era of sustainability, OGI Eyewear is implementing a new green standard.

CLEANER MATERIALS

 

We are committed to promote sustainability, lower the carbon footprint and set an example for better earth stewardship by moving to use bio-sourced acetates, earth-friendly metals, recycled materials and packaging elements that are biodegradable.

CLEANER PRACTICES

  • We have designed 100% biodegradable packaging for frames and created a line of sunglasses that include recycled materials.

  • In the wake of eliminating waste, we repurposed scraps of acetate that were headed to landfill and turned them into jewelry, accessories, PD rulers, mirrors and other branded materials to gift our customers.

  • In 2018, we converted the lighting in our entire site to energy efficient LED lighting.

  • All paper waste is securely shredded on site and recycled.

  • Employee kitchen utensils (dishes & silverware) are durable and reusable.

  • We've added perforated sun blocking decals to our windows which reduces heat from the sun coming through the windows in the summer.

  • We invested in an optimized fulfillment solution that reduced the number of paper copies required to pull and place orders by 50%.

  • OGI keeps a stocked kitchen at home office which encourages team members to have lunch on site during the work week. 

A CLEANER FUTURE

We are in this together. Though these goals cannot yet met overnight, we are confident that with each and every commitment we initiate is a step in the right direction for a cleaner tomorrow! Share your green initiatives with us at @ogieyewear so that we can tackle this task as one!

Learn about ouR ECO-friendly frames:

Eco material is a new kind of cellulose acetate using an eco-friendlier plasticizer deriving from natural sources, which can reduce pollution during its whole life cycle.

Material is plant based, safe and sustainable. The percentage of components from cotton and wood are increased in the eco materials and the content of phthalate is greatly reduced compared to standard materials.
