The Journey shades come equipped with German-engineered five-barrel hinges. They are paired with coated ‘safety’ screws to minimize metal-on-metal rubbing and corrosion. These hinges are tested to the nanometer to ensure a high level of precision and functionality day after day, year after year.
Made from Biodegradable Acetate
Conventional acetate is made using a petroleum-based bonding agent that can take over 1000 years to decompose in a landfill. The Journey shades use a vegetable-oil bonding agent and meet ISO 14855 biodegradable standards. The performance of these ‘bioplastic’ frames is identical to conventional acetate while being significantly more eco-friendly.
Made with Green Nylon Lenses
The Journey shades use ‘Green Nylon’ lenses, which are made with 39% plant oils. Their performance is identical to conventional Nylon, CR39 and Polycarbonate lenses, however their carbon and energy footprints are significantly smaller.
Made Using Recycled Steel
All metal detailing is created with 100% recycled stainless steel, meaning no new materials were mined or processed to create these glasses, saving energy and reducing carbon.
The Journey shades come with a faux-leather hard case with flocked inner lining. Snap magnet closure. C+C branding on outside and inside of case in silver foil. Also includes a 100% recycled microfiber polishing cloth with monogram detail.
