Pela Creates Eyewear For People Who Care!

Pela are famous for creating the world’s first 100% Compostable Phone Case, along with their AirPod Cases, Apple Watch Bands, Phone Grips, and most recently —Sustainable Sunglasses that are 100% biodegradable. 

Aside from using 33% less CO2e emissions, 34% less water usage, and 82% less waste compared to conventional sunglasses and packaging — Pela’s biodegradable sunnies provide full UVA/UVB protection, which is incredibly important when you’re out and about in the harsh Australian sun.

We love that these durable, eco-friendly sunnies are incredibly stylish, too. Here at F&F, we stock the Bonito frame (a classic rectangular shape) and the Sulu frame (a circular cat eye shape). The frames are compatible with prescription lenses.

How Do I Dispose Of Pela’s Sunglasses?

You’re probably thinking — why would I buy sunglasses that are designed to break down? Here’s the thing; Pela’s sunglasses are incredibly long-lasting and durable, so you’ll be able to wear them year-after-year. 

We recommend keeping, selling or swapping your Pela Sunglasses, but if you’re certain you want to dispose of them — the frame and lenses are both biodegradable and will break down completely in landfill. Alternatively, you can send them back to us at F&F and we'll get them to Pela where they get recycled! Find out more via our F&F Recycling Program.

The biggest difference between Pela and conventional sunglasses brands is that Pela takes full responsibility for the full life-cycle of their products. Pela 360 accepts old plastic phone cases and Pela products get upcycled!
