Jins Eyewear has introduced its first biodegradable sunglasses range called ‘The Classic Collection’ under the brand Jins&Sun.

The biodegradable sunglasses are made from the plant-based bioplastic M49 developed by Italian polymer manufacturer Mazzucchelli, replacing acetate, the plastic used in most glasses frames.

Made from cotton fibre and wood pulp, M49 contains a high amount of plant-derived content that can be quickly broken down by microorganisms upon disposal. It also boasts high durability, a lightweight feel, and a smooth, beautiful lustre. 

Meanwhile, the frames, inspired by wooden frameworks, can be easily broken down, separated into different parts, and recycled at the end of their life cycle. This also means that any worn parts can easily be removed and replaced, allowing customers to maintain and use the sunglasses for a long time.

First launched in the US, the Classic Collection comes with three different frame styles – Boston, Wellington, and Sirmont. 

Besides the US, Jins also has a retail presence in Japan, China, Taiwan, the Philippines, and Hong Kong.
