Brand to Watch: MODO Eyewear

Posted in Style
by Johanna Andersson on 20 March, 2019

We see more and more eyewear brands making an effort towards a sustainable product range through innovations such as bio-acetate – a material produced from cellulose fibers like wood pulp and cotton – making biodegradability a priority, and reality. There are some great examples of companies that have integrated this type of material in their collections – Ace & Tate, EoE, Oscar Magnuson, Stella McCartney, Crafting Plastics! – steering away from fossil fuels and chemical-filled plastics.

Also on this list of labels that have chosen to invest in progression instead of plastic pollution is MODO Eyewear – a New York brand with offices in Milan and Stockholm, uniting that urban city vibe with Italian craftsmanship and the minimalist aesthetics of Scandinavia. Their ECO eyewear line – sunglasses and opticals – is either Biobased, crafted using 63% renewable non-food oil from castor seeds, or Recycled and thus made with 95% recycled materials.

In an effort to bring their social and environmental responsibility full circle, the contemporary material selection is accompanied by programs like Help a Child See, which has given more than one million children in India their sight back by offering free vision screenings, prescription glasses and corrective treatments; and One Frame – One Tree, where over 2 million trees have been donated and planted – one tree for every frame sold.   

Check out the full MODO collection here and follow here. We especially love the cool and catty MINA sun shape (above)!
