As it is our generations' responsibility to make the world a better place for our children, we had one basic requirement when founding SooNice Sunnies. We did not want to add fresh plastic into circulation. After a comprehensive research we found ECONYL®, regenerated Nylon, to be the perfect material. First, it is won 100% from nylon waste and second, it is coming from Italy, just a few kilometers away from our production partners. Best thing: It can be regenerated indefinitely, so if you're kid outgrows their Sunnies, feel free to send them back to us as we can definitely use them as a resource for future sunglasses. A full circular product, adding no waste to our planet. Learn more about ECONYL® here: https://www.econyl.com/
Reduce, Reuse, Recycle...
SooRecycled - The ECONYL® regeneration system:
The ECONYL® Regeneration System starts with rescuing waste, like fishing nets, fabric scraps, carpet flooring and industrial plastic all over the world. That waste is then sorted and cleaned to recover all of the nylon possible.
Through a radical regeneration and purification process, the nylon waste is recycled right back to its original purity. That means ECONYL® regenerated nylon is exactly the same as virgin nylon.
ECONYL® regenerated nylon is processed into yarns and polymers for the fashion and interior industries.
- The beauty of ECONYL® regenerated nylon is that it has the potential to be recycled infinitely, without ever losing its quality. We believe circular design is the future and using ECONYL® is our first step on that journey.
