Zeal Memphis sunglasses feature biodegradable frames

Published March 18, 2014

BOULDER, Colo. (BRAIN) — Zeal Optics' new Memphis sunglass is part of its Crafted series of biodegradable sunglesses.

The frames are made of a biodegradable acetate based on Italian-grown cotton. 

"Taking its hints from the retro classics, Memphis stands as a piece that transitions from suit and tie to an afternoon on the boat and is wearable by all," said Zeal director of marketing Joe Prebich. "Subtle eye shape with a flat bridge on the brow of the glass allows for a closer, more comfortable fit. Lightweight sculpted temples help to increase comfort as well, for a long-term wearable sunglass."

The Crafted Collection includes the Memphis, Ace, Fleetwood and Dakota models, which are all biodegradable, designed in Colorado and made in Italy. 

MSRP: $169.
