Sustainable Sunglasses, Sustainable Packaging
Sunglasses are made from different materials. But unfortunately the frames from most suppliers and brands are made from some type of plastic. Plastic in itself is not wrong, when used right. For instance, there is a big difference between using cheap single-use plastic and using more durable plastics that can be used a lifetime or more. But the question is: for how long is your eyewear designed and made to last?
You and the environment as starting point
We make our products with you and the environment as starting point. With "you" we mean how they fit you. Our products should always look great on you. It also means comfort. Because they should feel really good wearing them. And it means that our products are truly made to last. Unlike many other products that sometimes seem to be designed to be replaced.
And what do we mean by the environment as starting point? We are very clear about this. BEINGBAR products should always limit the use of any non-sustainable materials. Whatever we can craft from sustainable material, we will. And we will always be transparent about it. And even more important is that we design and build our products and sunglasses to really last. So there's nothing "single use" about that!
Shipped 100% plastic free
So that explains our policy on crafting our shades and gear. But what is even more important is the amount of plastic waste coming from single use plastic packaging materials in the industry. The biggest positive impact we can have on the environment is by reducing that waste. Because it's completely unnessesary waste and easy to replace by other materials.
Plastic: our biggest Global problem today
The strange thing is that plastic in most cases is the cheapest packaging solution. And besides that it is known for its protective qualities. That's why it is used so often. And why it has caused one of the biggest global challenges our planet ever faced. But there are other solutions and sustainable alternatives. From the start we have made a conscious decision to ship in 100% plastic-free packaging. Yes, it is more expensive, but we know that cheap comes at a price for the environment sooner or later.
So here are our promises to you and the Earth:
Beautifully packaged, like a gift
We strongly believe it is important to not contribute to the waste problem with our products. Even when it means that the packaging might be considered as minimalistic. When you receive your BEINGBAR you will know what we mean: it’s like opening a gift, but a sustainable one. We can guarantee that you will LOVE the way our products are wrapped and shipped to you. It is proof that there is a good alternative
