The NEUTRØ series has a reduced carbon footprint, a result of KOMONO’s collaboration with Dutch science-based company DSM Engineering Plastics. Together, they found a way to base the NEUTRØ designs on EcoPaXX®, a product derived from the sustainable castor bean. This new material has been developed to reduce greenhouse gas emissions commonly associated with human activity and industry production, an innovation that can help us protect our planet for the next generation.
“We are constantly pushing boundaries, looking for new styles and new ways to develop better products in an ever-changing world. The NEUTRØ series is the result of this constant quest for innovation: qualitative eyewear made from a carbon neutral material.”
Anton Janssens – founder KOMONO
The NEUTRØ Process
Sourced from the Castor plant, castor beans are a crop cultivated in India.
Using this castor bean as a substitute for fossil fuels, DSM Engineering Plastics developed EcoPaXX®, the material on which our KOMONO NEUTRØ series is based. The material can be recycled and used in a cradle-to-cradle closed loop.
With style and sustainability in mind, NEUTRØ is introduced within four both classic and new KOMONO styles: Francis, Vivien, Harper and Devon, in two distinct color options: Sand and Black.
Next to the sustainable frame, we provide the NEUTRØ series sunglasses from gradient bio-lenses and a recycled cloth, booklet and case.
The end result? A lower enviromental impact, happy farmers and a fashion forward/eco-conscious customer.
