GREEN NEWSFLASH at Leightons Tunbridge Wells!

Sustainability at the forefront of our focus

We are proud to announce that Leightons Opticians & Hearing Care in Tunbridge Wells are now stocking a range of sustainable glasses frames.

Designs by Neubau, Eco, Zeal Optics and Esprit now all feature within their range of glasses available in branch.

All of these products are made from sustainable or recycled materials, helping to lower Leightons’ carbon footprint and contribute to a better environment for the future.

ECO eyewear


One frame, one tree

Eco plant a tree for each frame that’s sold, helping to make a positive change through rebuilding our planet together, frame by frame.

Their frames are created from 95% recycled material and their bio-based glasses are made using castor seed oil for a lightweight, comfortable fit, as well as making them sustainable.

Use less, give back, explore more

Being an outdoor specialist eyewear company, Zeal felt it was only appropriate that they focus on more than just being that, and actively giving back to the outdoors.

Zeal now use plant-based materials in both their sunglasses frames and lenses. They also focus on giving back to the community through various projects and partnerships that help to lower their environmental footprint.

Dedication to the environment

In a nutshell, Neubau eyewear offers an urban lifestyle with sustainability. Neubau is conscious of both good style and the environment, helping to give them the perfect mix for a well-loved eyewear brand.

They focus on the production of their frames, primarily looking at the resources used and where they come from – but it’s not just limited to their frames. Packing, printing and in-store materials are all considered when it comes to improving their carbon footprint.
