First frames made from recycled eyewear

Together with selected industry partners including Synsam and Vision for All, EOE Eyewear is collecting old glasses before they end up as waste to create a new material for frames.
98% of the eyewear material created is recycled and used to produce EOE REGRIND. In a factory in northern Sweden worn out “old” glasses are dismantled by hand and sorted into different colours and qualities. Thereafter the frames undergo a new recycling process, developed by EOE Eyewear together with a Swedish research institute, starts.
The frames are shattered into small pieces and the metallic parts are
filtered out.
The material is then created through an application of high pressure and heat. The new frames are cut from the new bricks of the newly formed material and assembled using metal parts made from Swedish recycled steel.
