There is something special about a locally owned, totally unique business, like Off The Wall Eyewear Emporium.
Steven Charlebois has brought a fun, practical and creative selection of eyewear to the Moncton area. The shop is filled with quirky touches and character, right down to the barnboard and metal pipe shelving that Steven made himself.
He is providing customers a diverse selection of eyewear specializing in unique prescription glasses, sunglasses, safety, and sporting eyewear, baby/toddler eyeglasses, contact lenses and more. Steven is right there in the shop serving customers, helping you find the perfect set of eyewear. He carries frames made of wood, plant oils, and recycled materials.
Two lines that I was particularly interested in were ECO and Zeal. Both lines of frames are available at Off The Wall Eyewear Emporium. They are carrying a wide variety of each line, making it the best place to shop locally for these eco-friendly options.
Here is a little about these two brands, and why I think they are an awesome choice in eyewear!
Biobased Eyewear, ECO® by Modo
Description from their Facebook page.
ECO is the only eyewear brand made of 95% recycled content and 64% biobased material. A tree is planted for every frame sold. We empower customers to donate their unwanted eyewear to people in need by reusing ECO’s packaging, which provides the gift of sight to 314 million adults and children worldwide. ECO’s mission has become a game-changer in the industry.
They offer Biobased and Recycled collections and work with Trees for the Future. They have already planted over 1.5 million trees.
Some styles have the clip-on feature, making your favorite pair of glasses, become your favorite sunglasses.
Zeal Optics is dedicated to reducing its environmental footprint. They offer 100% plant-based sunglasses.
Their sunglass collection is completely petroleum-free and made from renewable plant-based materials.
