RX Glasses: All Green Everything

Imagine: A pair of Canadian-designed eyeglasses, handcrafted with all natural organic sustainable material, reflecting the energy and spunk of downtown Vancouver.

Canada's first sustainable and green eyewear company, Green Glasses, is turning heads with its contemporary eyewear line, made wholly from organic sustainable material. The materials are non-toxic, phthalate-free, renewable and 100 per cent biodegradable.

It's the kind of line that gives back to the earth – for every pair of eyeglasses Green Glasses sells a percentage will be donated to David Suzuki Foundation. Now that's forward-thinking fashion. If you're looking for a style that reflects your values, you can't go wrong with these.

Find Vancouver-inspired designs in the mix – stylish eyeglass frames with the soul of Granville Street and the sophistication of Robson. Can it get any more Canadian, eh?

Here's a potpourri of eco-spectacles you can only find at Green Glasses, Canadian designed, handcrafted with all natural organic sustainable material (+ Anti-Reflective/Scratch Coating on all RX Glasses):

granville $159

Medium Fit Sizing: Width 53mm, HT 35mm, Bridge 13mm, Arm 135mm. Pop into your local eyecare professional to confirm correct sizing.

Few neighbourhoods across this great land can capture the vitality and downright funkiness of Granville in Vancouver. We’ve aimed to invoke that Granville soul into these stylish, contemporary eyeglass frames that are designed entirely from organic, recycled materials. They beautifully frame and fit any face no matter what neighbourhood you call home.

robson $159


Medium/Large Fit Sizing: Width 53mm, HT 35.6mm, Bridge 17mm, Arm 140mm. Pop into your local eyecare professional to confirm correct sizing.

As one of the world’s most livable, leading-edge cities, Vancouver radiates a style that is the sum of its natural born beauty and its kick it back or crank it up life style. It’s that same spirit of individuality that defines our Robson frames, a look that easily blends the contemporary with the classic.

birch $159

Medium/Large Fit Sizing: Width 51mm, HT 38.5mm, Bridge 18mm, Arm 140mm. Pop into your local eyecare professional to confirm correct sizing.

In a forest of sameness the birch forever stands out, this has inspired our design for our Birch eyeglass frame. This is all about capturing elegant lines and lending a subtle sophistication to your look. After all, the birch never demands attention, it simply attracts it.


maple $159

Medium Fit Sizing: Width 47mm, HT 38mm, Bridge 20mm, Arm 145mm. Pop into your local eyecare professional to confirm correct sizing.

Why call them Maple? Because other quintessential Canadian symbols like beavers or hockey fights fail to portray the sheer grace and clean, contemporary style that we’re trying to capture. Crafted from organic plant based material, the round-rimmed design makes a fabulous statement for both men and women. Please, though, no hockey fights with your glasses on.
