Body Glove 459 Biodegradable Safety Glasses
Available from Body Glove Safety
Body Glove's new 459 biodegradable safety glasses are created with material that, when thrown away, will attract microbes to speed up the breakdown of polycarbonate plastic.
Stylish, ANSI Z87.1-2010 compliant 459 glasses are designed to meet your corporate and personal environmental goals.
Sporty sculpted frames are semi-rimless. Softer temple ends and nose pads gently grip for secure, comfortable fit. Glasses are packaged in a biodegradable pouch made of potato starch. 99% UVA and UVB protection.
After one year, items constructed with this new additive show deep degradation caused by microbes. In a small fraction of the amount of time it would take non-treated plastics to degrade, our plastic will turn into stable humus (which balances soil pH and helps keep soils aerated) and methane (in anaerobic) or carbon dioxide (in aerobic conditions).
