I think totalkitcar and TKC Mag readers will be very interested to hear about super cool new sunglasses brand Yuma Labs founded by Sebastiaan De Neubourg. From one industry that recycles to another!

Their frames are pretty funky and what’s really great is that they are made from 100 per cent recycled PET bottles. Thanks to rigorous production controls, they can use only the purest materials in their own manufacturing process. Another cool thing is that thanks to a label and a unique code that comes with your sunglasses you’ll be able to trace the origin of the parts used.

In what could well be the world’s first sustainable sunglasses brand which are according to de Neubourg are ‘designed for disassembly”. This means that they came up with ways to easily recycle every pair upon its return once you are finished with them.

The initial range consists of one unisex model called Lazlo (available in four colours: two transparent frames – the original colours of the recycled bottles) and two coloured frames (brown and black). Prices range from £71 to £80 per pair.

When you are done with them just Use your case and transform it into a ‘send-back-case’. Anywhere in the world, you can throw your case into a post-box and it’ll end up, free of charge for you, back Yuma Labs.

They will then recycle them (again) into new sunglasses and you receive a discount on a new pair.
