Hemp Eyewear Launches Kickstarter Campaign

Transworld Business
As more and more companies look to ways to create sustainable products and manufacturing processes, new start-ups are popping up across the board that have foundations in that philosophy. Hemp Eyewear, a new sunglasses brand created by Sam Whitten of Glasgow, UK,  is one of those companies. Whitten has launched a Kickstarter campaign to raise the funds needed to begin the first round of production, coming off a successful New Designers 2014 tradeshow in London. The frames, made from a hemp composite material consisting of hemp and flax fibres,  are formed through a compression moulding process, creating a strong, lightweight, sustainable product, according to Whitten’s Kickstarter page. All the materials used in Hemp Eyewear’s production are sustainable and eco-friendly, the brand says.
