Zeal - biodegradable sunglasses
Picked up a pair of these about a month ago and they are awesome. They are made using cotton. Still rely on fossil fuels to produce and transport, but at least it's a step forward. If they end up in the ocean, within 18 months they will have completely biodegraded.

The pair I have is called the 'Tracker' with a matte grey finish and polarized lenses. I call it the self healing glasses cause I have scuffed the frame many times already and just rubbing the finish brings back the matte finish with no trace of damage or scratching. I even got a pen mark on it, doh, and over time it's simply fading away. I don't know if it's the exposure to the sun or what, but thought it was pretty kewl. The lenses seem very durable too, so far no scratches and I use them at work so they do get bumped by stuff here and there. Best nice pair of sun glasses I've ever owned, highly recommended check em' out

Btw, I'm not affiliated or employed by them at all, just sharin'

n combination with ZEAL’s plant-based e-llume lens, the Ace is the greenest sunglass ever developed
The lens are made from a "plant based" technology.
They don't exactly say the lens are biodegradable.
I assume they consider a plant-based lens more Eco-friendly than lens made from glass.
Believe 1/2 of what you see and none of what you hear.
Fake News will be the downfall of our Republic!

When I spoke to them in their headquarters they told me the lenses biodegrade as they are using plant based resins, no plastic.
