See & Do Good

Urbanity and sustainability combined with authenticity and ingenious wit, that's how you could describe neubau eyewear. And because we want to keep up vibrating hubs like Neubau and at the same time treat our environment with respect, we started SEE & DO GOOD.

SEE & DO GOOD stands for our efforts to respect the environment and to enjoy aesthetics at the same time. Conscious consumption and forward-looking production are the focus, and it starts with the material of our frames, but also affects the material of our spectacle case, cleaning cloths, our POS material, as well as the support of social projects empowering nature in urban surroundings.

We are taking great care to treat our environment with utmost consideration and there is a lot that we have accomplished already. Yet we’re aware that we are not perfect, but our continuous effort and our goals are what define us. Watch below for some eco-friendly initiatives coming down the line.

It's in the materials

How naturalpx is made

naturalPX is a highly developed eco-friendly polymer used in the manufacture of our spectacle frames from April 2017 onwards. naturalPX is made from organically sourced and renewable primary products, as 65% of it is based on an oil extracted from the seeds of castor oil plants. This way we are supporting our environment's natural cycle.
The lightness of the material allows comfortable wear and gives our models an enjoyable feel. This is important as a pair of glasses is a constant companion that is exposed to all kinds of everyday situations.
Bob , Valerie und Dani have already made the start and from April 2017 onwards all neubau eyewear models, made of polymer,
are made of the eco-friendly naturalPX.

Supporting urban nature & environment

We are also aiming to support concepts that show consideration to the environment we live in. neubau eyewear will support façade greening in Vienna, cooperate with a bee conservancy in New York City, or team up with gabarage, an upcycling firm where new and useful products are created from used materials.
And this is just to name a few of the projects we are working on.
See below to find out more details.

To support the Honeybee Conservancy, neubau eyewear takes part in the Sponsor-a-Hive program.

Product equipment

Also the accouterments of our products have been manufactured with an eye on utility and ecology. For example our case is manufactured from a cellulose base and without any need for glue, or the cleaning cloth, which is made from recycled plastic bottles.
