Pela makes the world’s first 100% biodegradable sunglasses. The whole pair is biodegradable, including the lenses. At the end of their life, they can either be sent to a landfill to biodegrade, or you can send them back to Pela through their Pela 360 Program for upcycling!

The cord for this bracelet is made with recycled plastic, the beads are made with recycled glass, and it comes with a stainless steel 4Ocean tag. For every bracelet sold, 4Ocean removes 1 pound of waste from our oceans.
11. Vegan Sneakers
According to the US Department of the Interior, over 300 million pairs of shoes are thrown away each year in the United States alone. These shoes are made from recycled plastic, natural cork, algae foam, and organic cotton. Each pair contains 3-4 recycled plastic water bottles and donates 1% towards environmental causes!

It’s one thing to tell people to use a reusable straw; it’s another actually to be able to carry it around with you easily. This straw is super convenient and an easy way to get your dad to start using reusable straws! The case is made from recycled plastic, and it ships in recycled content that is also recyclable.
