Here at EIGHTH WILL we are fulfilling our commitments to be an ethical trading company and to reducing our carbon footprint within the world.
Read below to find out the steps we're taking to do this.
EIGHTH WILL sunglasses are made of polycarbonate which is a high performance, sustainable and eco-efficient material. Please note, that where applicable, some of our sunglasses are made of metal. To give the metal it’s shininess a special coating is used. This provides us with the option of not having to use nickel in our sunglasses.
The lenses for our eyewear are also made with polycarbonate. You may potentially find acrylic lens in the market, but not in our collection. A property of acrylic lenses is that they burst easily. Therefore, the FDA (Food & Drugs Authority in the United States) does not allow acrylic lenses into their country. The vendors and/or factories we use hold all the legal documents necessary to pass the FDA qualifications.
Our sunglasses are 100% UV400 protected [where acknowledged]. This test is conducted by our vendors and/or factories that we use. Our sunglasses currently range from protected categories 2-3.
