Creating Eco frames is all about thinking new. Not only when it comes to the design, but also for the materials we use.
From seeds to frames?
The short answer – yes! But it’s actually a little bit more sophisticated than that. To create our biobased frames, castor seeds are turned into castor seed oil and then pellets, which make up a big part of our biobased material.
We give metal a second chance
We know that the earth doesn’t offer a limitless supply of resources, which is why Eco’s recycled frames are crafted using 95% recycled metal. That’s a serious saving on natural resources!
This is not a plastic bag
We’ve re-invented the protective bags that house Eco frames, making them from natural fibers. It’s much friendlier to the planet than traditionally-used plastic bags – and 100% biodegradable. We hope others will follow our lead!
The Eco promise isn’t just for frames…
…our cases and packaging minimize our footprint too. The fabric of each case and clip-on sleeve uses recycled PET, and, of course, all outer packaging and inserts are made of recycled paper.
One Frame, One Tree
Planting trees empowers entire communities by helping them restore their environment, grow more food and build a sustainable future. Through our One Frame, One Tree program, we plant a tree for each frame purchased.
