Sustainability in eyewear

Did you know that sustainability can even extend to your eyewear? Choose our eco lenses for a more sustainable future.

An eco-sustainable lifestyle means helping the environment in all that you do. Now that can even extend to your eyewear.

In con­junc­tion with Earth Day, Di­v­el Italia has set a goal of con­vey­ing our com­mit­ment to the cru­cial is­sues of sus­tain­abil­i­ty and the en­vi­ron­ment. These ef­forts have be­gun re­cent­ly but are des­tined to keep in­creas­ing over time.

With the grow­ing fo­cus on and mar­ket de­mand for “green” prod­ucts and pro­duc­tion process­es, we are com­mit­ted to re­duc­ing the en­vi­ron­men­tal im­pact of all our pro­duc­tion fa­cil­i­ties and, above all, to re­search­ing, de­vel­op­ing and pro­duc­ing lens­es and so­lar fil­ters that make use of in­creas­ing lev­els of biosourced ma­te­ri­als and eco-sus­tain­able byprod­ucts, there­by en­hanc­ing the en­vi­ron­men­tal sus­tain­abil­i­ty of our prod­ucts and pro­duc­tion process­es. In re­cent years, our com­pa­ny phi­los­o­phy has be­come en­vi­ron­men­tal­ly friend­ly, as can be seen in our prod­ucts, our pack­ag­ing, and even in our post-pro­duc­tion pro­jects (e.g. re­cy­cling and waste man­age­ment).

Fol­low­ing the var­i­ous ex­per­i­ments and pro­jects pur­sued in 2019 re­gard­ing lens waste, at MIDO 2020 we launched the first eco-sus­tain­able lens with the cre­ation of GREEN LINE, our eco-col­lec­tion fea­tur­ing the first lens­es made of ECO-NY­LON.


Since then, we have in­creas­ing­ly in­vest­ed in the study of en­vi­ron­men­tal­ly friend­ly ma­te­ri­als so that our prod­ucts can make a sig­nif­i­cant con­tri­bu­tion to achiev­ing our ob­jec­tives.

By us­ing eco­log­i­cal raw ma­te­ri­als and pro­duc­tion meth­ods that take ad­van­tage of en­er­gy sav­ings or mass bal­ance to pro­duce our eco-sus­tain­able col­lec­tions of sun fil­ters and cor­rec­tive lens­es, we have tak­en ma­jor steps to­wards pro­tect­ing the en­vi­ron­ment aimed at re­duc­ing the car­bon emis­sions of our pro­duc­tion process­es. In the sum­mer of this year, we launched our Gaia Eco Lens to pro­duce the first sus­tain­able cor­rec­tive lens, which re­duces car­bon emis­sions by 5 times by us­ing 82% bio-sus­tain­able ma­te­ri­als.


At Di­v­el Italia, in our con­tin­ued pur­suit of these ef­forts, we’ve re­cent­ly de­vel­oped a new ma­te­r­i­al for our GREEN LINE col­lec­tion: POLY­CAR­BON­ATE Eco, an ex­treme­ly light­weight, ver­sa­tile prod­uct that is ide­al­ly suit­ed to meet­ing your every need in terms of qual­i­ty and en­vi­ron­men­tal sus­tain­abil­i­ty, be­cause it is made us­ing re­cy­cled ma­te­r­i­al and mass bal­ance.

Our POLY­CAR­BON­ATE Eco is an ex­cel­lent so­lu­tion for a high-per­for­mance prod­uct that is light­weight, ver­sa­tile, and durable, while also re­spect­ing the en­vi­ron­ment’s nat­ur­al cy­cles.

The use of sec­ond-gen­er­a­tion re­new­able re­sources min­i­mizes:

  • Waste in both pro­duc­tion and post-pro­duc­tion
  • Car­bon emis­sions (an es­ti­mat­ed 61% less for every kg of eco-PC pro­duced)
  • Con­sump­tion of fos­sil-based ma­te­ri­als (an es­ti­mat­ed 35% less than oth­er prod­ucts)
  • Pro­duc­tion of new plas­tic (thanks to the mix and reuse of Pe/PP/PET, etc.)

POLY­CAR­BON­ATE Eco is ISCC PLUS cer­ti­fied for the sus­tain­abil­i­ty and trace­abil­i­ty of the ma­te­ri­als used in the place of pe­tro­le­um-based ma­te­ri­als.


This cer­ti­fi­ca­tion rep­re­sents an im­por­tant step in our fight against cli­mate change. In fact, DI­V­EL ITALIA is one of the first com­pa­nies in Eu­rope to ob­tain ISCC PLUS cer­ti­fi­ca­tion for all our pro­duc­tion sites. This cer­ti­fi­ca­tion at­tests to the sus­tain­abil­i­ty and trace­abil­i­ty of our prod­ucts through­out the pro­duc­tion cy­cle and en­ables every­one in­volved to en­joy a sus­tain­able prod­uct from cer­ti­fied sup­pli­ers.

An eco-sus­tain­able lifestyle means help­ing the en­vi­ron­ment in all that you do. Now that can even ex­tend to your eye­wear.
