Bio-based material, we read about it on many item descriptions, it sounds like something positive and beneficial. But what exactly is it and what does it all mean?
A bio-based material is a material intentionally, partially or completely made from substances derived from living (or once-living) organisms. Bi-based products are often biodegradable and are environmentally friendly which can result in safer and healthier workplaces.
Bio-based materials can include adhesives, plastics, landscaping materials and even reading glasses!
One great example is the popular Helium frames. Not only are made environmentally friendly, but they also feature adjustable silicone nose pads, have acrylic aspheric lenses with an anti-reflective coating and are compression mounted which makes them super light weight on the wearers face.
Available in crystal clear, black and tortoise shell buying a pair of these is a “no-brainer” and remember you aren’t just getting a great pair of stylish readers at a great price. You are also helping the environment!
