April is Earth Month, a time to celebrate our planet and take action to protect it. Sustainability being a core value to Marcolin’s mission and long-term goals, we’re highlighting our brands latest collections that are taking further action to become more eco-friendly and sustainable within eyewear.

Embodying the values of the iconic lifestyle brand, Timberland® Eyewear’s S/S 24 collection incorporates bio-based injected plastic and bio-based acetate. The frames bearing the Earthkeepers® mark, elegantly create solid, timeless, easy-to-wear shapes, and contain at least 35% bio-based content. Today, Earthkeepers™ philosophy is at the heart of everything Timberland does from its commitment to protect and restore the outdoors, improve social conditions globally, and find ways to make products more responsibly. Preserving the outdoor heritage, the sunglasses and optical styles created for the new season express a bold and vibrant new personality focusing on aesthetics and lifestyle.

TOM FORD Eyewear expresses a style rooted in luxury – characterized by exclusive materials of the highest quality, masterful workmanship, and sophisticated details. The trendsetting brand continues to create the best in luxury eyewear while implementing more eco-friendly sun and optical styles in its latest collection. The brand’s acetate styles in its latest collection are now majority bio-based. Referred to as an ECO frame, bio-based frames are composed of M49 which is innovative eco acetate. M49 replaces traditional plasticizer used in acetate frames with a biodegradable acetate composed by raw materials including cellulose acetate and by a plasticizer mix mainly derived from natural starch and ethanol fermentation. Every ECO frame is labelled in the inner temple, signifying its sustainable composition.
