Sustainable glasses will not change the world, people that wear them will. With this in mind, the award-winning Davies and Jones Optometrists in Talbot Green are now stocking a range of sustainable eyewear from Sea2See, made with 100% recycled plastic.
Vale Life chats to Ian Jones, Managing Director of the practice to find out more.
Why did you choose to work with Sea2See eyewear?
While we carry a fabulous range of designer eyewear at our practices, we are mindful that we need to “Do Good, Feel Good and Look Good”. We have linked up with Sea2See as we wholeheartedly agree with their concerns of sea contamination by plastics. Davies & Jones are committed to doing everything we can to support sustainability. Our ethos has always been to care for our customers, the community and our planet.
What are the raw materials of Sea2See glasses?
We all need to wake up to the fact that every second 256 kilos of plastic
ends up in our oceans. Each pair of glasses is made from 100% recycled ocean plastic and made in Italy, meeting the requirements of any optical market.
Typically who are Sea2See customers?
I think a lot of Davies & Jones customers care deeply for the environment. I believe the brand will be very popular.
How have the Sea2See glasses been received?
The mantra for the Sea2See company is their glasses are sold to people who “Do Good, Feel Good and Look Good” and these are the customers who are buying the products. These are Davies & Jones customers. We all need to do our bit to save our oceans and we support their waste to fashion mantra.
