Sustainability

We believe in making the most innovative eyewear and watches. Products that are fashion-forward and enjoyable to all. Products that are made and worn with care for the planet and its people.

We truly believe we all collectively have a responsibility to progress towards a more sustainable future. At KOMONO, we are taking a pioneering role in rendering innovative design not only accessible but also viable on the long term. This means we are constantly adapting how we conduct our business, whether it be in the choice of materials we are using, in the way we package our products or in our daily practices.

Since day one, we wanted to have a positive impact on planet and people. Given the current environmental and social challenges our planet is facing, we are aware that there are still a lot of further actions to be taken. We believe in making realistic and permanent changes that will help us reduce our burden on the environment while also supporting local communities. We want to be held accountable and believe we should be transparent towards our stakeholders on our current policy and the actions we are undertaking. Only together we can create a more sustainable future.

Eco-acetate

Eco-acetate

Acetate is an allergy-free plastic made from plants. Unlike petroleum-based plastics, acetate plastics are environment-friendly and out of organic materials that decompose over time.

Our eco-acetate takes this even one step further. Made completely from natural and renewable resources, it lends our glasses the luxurious and exclusive feel of a natural substance Ideal for the creation of eco-friendly, fashion-forward and high-quality eyewear.

Recycled acetate

For our recycled acetate, we sweep the floor of our manufacturers to save all the bits and pieces left over from production. These leftovers are then melted and dyed with pigment to create a perfect black acetate.

Made from pre-consumer acetate waste, our recycled acetate has all the same qualities and characteristics as regular acetate but does not put an extra strain on the environment. By using recycled acetate, we limit the resources we need and do something useful with materials that would otherwise turn to waste.
