The Good Citizens story is one of 2500+ failed attempts, sheer determination and a belief they can help untrash the planet™. The brand was born out of a family dinner discussion with the kids (8,10) about how the world is drowning in plastic waste.
After 752 days they invented a way to turn a discarded single-use plastic bottle into a pair 100% recycled modular sunglasses. From an entire window next to Prada in Selfridges London to being featured in Forbes to speaking at the United Nations and winning multiple International design and sustainability
awards, the story of hope has reached every corner of the world. They make the glasses in Sydney, like no other pair own the planet.
Sat on your sunnies? No worries. Every part can be replaced. They will make and post you a new part so you can fix them yourself in seconds. Good for you & the planet.
You can mix up your look to match the swoosh on your favourite sneakers. The clips can be swapped in seconds.
Their box is 100% recycled and printed with plant-based inks and the sunglasses case + cleaning cloth are made with 100% PET from post-consumer plastic bottles. Their courier bag is even compostable and their delivery service 100% carbon neutral.
As if all of this wasn't amazing enough - buying a pair of Good Citizens sunnies pays for 1kg of plastic to be pulled from the ocean, with the help of their NGO partners. So far, Good Citizens has funded the removal of 4394kg! Plus each pair is carbon negative.
