Looks cool but I don't know how to feel about it as I wear glasses with different lenses because of my prescription

Campaign Info



Our goal is to develop an eco-friendly eyewear business and make an impact, by replacing the regular materials, such as metal and plastic, used in sunglasses for eco-friendly, sustainable, lightweight, resistant and biodegradable frames.

The Shiva has a design that fits every face shape. This makes it great for everybody out there: boys, girls and everything in between, from moms and dads, all the way to adventurous grandpas! We have the perfect design for YOU!

Bio acetate is made of cellulose, whose fibers are very strong and hard to break. This is what ensures that, even after many years of usage, bio acetate frames do not lose their shape and structure.

Made of cotton and wood, the material is subjected to a fifteen-stage process, becoming what is also known as bio acetate. This process ensures not only that Shivas are super resistant to shock and scratches, but also that they can withstand extreme heat.

To provide the best possible experience, we brought to you these unique sustainable frames together with the New Generation of Polaroid lenses with 9 layers of protection (2 layers scratch-resistant, 2 layers shock-resistant, 4 layers of UV400 protection (maximum UV protection) and 1 main layer of polarization).

They offer guaranteed maximum UV rays protection and are free of glare.

The Shiva lens is unbreakable with its two layers of shock resistance and an additional two layers of scratch resistance!

Although it comes from cotton fibers and wood pulp, during the 15 stage process to the final version, it becomes waterproof, so you can wash it as many times as you want.

We put a lot of thought and work into our Shivas to ensure we'd end up with a product we believe in so much, that we have chosen to also give our backers a lifetime guarantee against the breaking.

We spent countless hours brainstorming, researching and testing our materials to make sure our Shivas would turn out exactly as we had imagined!

Joplins was born in 2016 with the vision to develop an eco-friendly eyewear business. We wanted to create greener sunglasses by opting for alternatives to the regular materials currently being used by other brands. Making sure they were not only sustainable but also lightweight, resistant, and biodegradable.
