- 100% biodegradable in 115 days using industrial composting methods
This material was chosen for our inaugural collection of sunglasses as it aligns with our sustainable approach to fashion & production whilst whilst providing superior aesthetics & reliable frames construction
M49 Mazzucchelli Bioacetate is a type of bio-based acetate material that offers several sustainability benefits. It is derived from renewable resources, such as plant-based materials, making it more environmentally friendly compared to conventional acetate derived from fossil fuels.
Bioacetate production reduces greenhouse gas emissions and contributes to a lower carbon footprint. Additionally, it can be biodegradable under certain conditions, which helps to minimise plastic waste and its impact on the environment. The adoption of M49 Mazzucchelli Bioacetate can be a step towards promoting a more sustainable and eco-friendly approach to various industries.
