Bird Eyewear News
We will be showcasing our latest ranges for 2024 at 100% Optical. Join us at stand E113 to explore our new colourways Azure, Botanic, Quartz & Plum as well as new Birds including the Rio.
A key aspect of our supply chain is understanding where raw material is sourced and the supply chain that supports it. Our suppliers meet the highest standards of manufacturing, including ISO9001 certifications, FDA and CE compliance, including FSC certifications for wood.
Our frames use Bio-acetate which is better for the environment and biodegradable. Unlike traditional acetate, bio-acetate is made without the use oil-based plasticisers.
Plant based dyes are used in our colouring of woods and acetate, and to top things off, we make our cleaning cloths from recycled plastic bottles.
We’re a B Corp
Certified B Corporations are rigorously verified to meet the highest standards of social and environmental impact, and balance purpose with profit.
Thanks to our innovative approach, we're the highest scoring B Corp in our industry.
Supporting communities in Malawi and Zambia
598 million people in Africa have no access to electricity. Leaving millions to rely on burning things like kerosene for light; they emit toxic black smoke, cost money to run and are extremely hazardous.
For every pair sold we distribute solar light to remote communities in Africa through our Share Your Sun partnership with SolarAid.
Due to the rapid growth of our Bird Eyewear network of Opticians, we have closed all direct to customer Optical sales.
Instead, all of our Optical ranges will be exclusively available throughout our network of UK Opticians who stock our sustainable eyewear.
Creating a circular economy
Our frames are built to last and we consider their whole life cycle when designing them to minimise wastage.
But we go one better, anyone can take advantage of our recycling programme and send us any old frames for recycling to receive a discount on your next pair of Birds.
A Global Movement
We put people first, and by working closely with our assembly teams and supply chain we can ensure minimum impact on the environment, and maximum support for our global flock. This means we can ensure no forms of modern slavery, no child labour, no forced labour, freedom of association and fair and equal pay.
We are a certified carbon zero company, offsetting all additional carbon miles and minimising our carbon footprint wherever possible.
Our Bird Forest will see us plant over 10,000 trees in the next two years, creating a bio-diverse woodland, to pull carbon from our atmosphere and of course create new homes for our feathered friends.
