ZEAL Optics announced the release of the world’s first cotton biodegradable sunglass, the Ace. Designed in Boulder, Colorado and crafted by the renowned Italian powerhouse, Mazzucchelli, the Ace is a revolution in sustainable eyewear. Produced from 100% USA Grown cotton, the Ace is the first of its kind and the greenest sunglass – EVER.

“After two years of development, we are bringing to market an amazing product with a purpose,” said ZEAL President John Sanchez.

For this launch, ZEAL partnered with the renowned Mazzucchelli family, boasting over 160 years of eyewear expertise in Italy, to provide an ecological statement to the eyewear market without sacrificing style. The unique result is Ace.

In combination with ZEAL’s plant-based e-llume lens, the Ace is the greenest sunglass ever developed.

“ZEAL Optics has seen our ecological philosophy come to life in a revolutionary new product,” said Sanchez. ”Both Mazzucchelli and ZEAL are working together to create a product that will truly raise the bar on sustainability in the industry.”

All of ZEAL’s handmade eyewear, designed in the Rocky Mountains of Boulder, COLO. USA, highlights an industry-leading initiative to source sustainable materials for trend defining styles.

“The eyewear industry needs innovators. Small, independent brands like ZEAL help to push the limits of the market,” said Joe Prebich, ZEAL’s Director of Marketing. “It’s so exciting to think about how the brand can transform at retail around a product that has this type of ecological story behind it.”

ZEAL Optics’ patent-pending plant-based lenses offer unparalleled protection and prevention from UVA, B, and C, as well as, being able to identify and block a negative light range called High Energy Visible (HEV) light. This was recently cited as a possible cause of cataracts and macular degeneration.

The ZEAL e-llume lens not only identifies this spectrum of light, but helps to block it out. The e-llume lenses contain a special hard coating for scratch resistance, along with an exclusive high transmission polarized film for increased eye protection from harmful rays. The ZEAL e-llume lens also proudly offers the highest clarity rating of any lens in the outdoor market, utilizing higher purity material allowing for greater visual clarity.
