Eyewear Made From Recycled Water Bottles in Flint, Michigan

Flint, Michigan has been notorious over the last many years for its dramatic economic decline, a city that feels hollowed-out and forgotten. It’s also known for undrinkable water, due to lead contamination. Still, years later, the city remains in great decline, and much of the water unclean.

There are some people fighting to make a comeback in the city. Genusee is an eyewear company making stylish frames made from recycled plastic water bottles. The glasses not only are made from recycled plastic bottles, but for each frame purchased, they’ll recycle an additional 15 bottles. Sounds like an inspirational idea to us. Glasses starting at $99.
