In 2013, Antonio Verde burst into the sunglasses market in the hope of making it more sustainable. And that’s exactly what this Belgian brand does, thanks to its creative use of materials, like recycled computer parts. Computer says yes! Or how about a frame in FSC certified wood or temples made from bamboo? Not only eye-catching and unique, but ecologically responsible as well.
Antonio Verde works with certified factories and regularly visits them. This not only allows the label to keep an eye on their environmental friendliness, but also to develop a long-term business relationship with them. These medium-sized family businesses from developed or newly industrialized countries are firmly opposed to child labor and treat every employee with respect, paying fair wages, providing health insurance coverage and ensuring safe working conditions.
