OKIA strengthens its commitment to Sustainability
The “FIRST EYEWEAR PRODUCTION SITE IN CHINA TO BE CERTIFIED BY GRS IN 2021”
In celebration of 2021 #WorldOceanDay, OKIA renews its commitment to more sustainable production.
The company’s production line is one of the FIRST EYEWEAR production sites in China to be certified by Global Recycle Standard (GRS) in 2021. GRS is an international, voluntary, full product standard that sets requirements for third-party certification of recycled content, chain of custody, social and environmental practices, and chemical restrictions.
“We are proud to announce this new achievement which represents a step forward in our sustainable commitment in the eyewear industry” says Jacky Lam, Managing Director of Okia Optical “Since 2019 we first launched our up cycled plastic bottle collection RESHAPE(TM) with our #millionbottleschallenge; in 2021, over THREE MILLION bottles are recycled into eyewear. We continue to prevent millions of bottles from going into the landfill or ocean by giving used water bottles a second life (in fact, a brighter life!)”.
