Additional Styles Added to Eco Born Biobased Capsule Collection

New York, NY

MODO Eyewear has added eight new styles to their environmentally-friendly Eco Born Biobased capsule collection. Each style is available in six colors. The collection features four women’s and three men’s styles, with one unisex frame.

Born from MODO’s successful Eco line, the new additions to the Biobased capsule collection consist of mainly modified rectangular styles in vibrant colors. The combination of stylish and eco- sustainable eyewear ensures the collection is not only environmentally friendly, but also a leader in eyewear fashion.

Biobased features lightweight and flexible frames made of 63 percent bio-based materials. The frames are made from castor seeds, a highly sustainable plant because of its fast growth after being harvested. In only a few months, the plant can grow up to 15” in height.

The collection is a result of a three yearlong collaboration with a French chemical company. Biobased is bio-certified by the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) and is part of the USDA’s bio-preferred program. Under the Bio-Preferred Program, companies who create bio- based products are given preference by federal agencies when making purchase decisions.
