Marchon Introduces Eastman’s Tenite Renew in Eyewear

Marchon, one of the world’s largest eyewear manufacturers and distributors, has announced it will introduce Eastman’s Tenite Renew in its proprietary and licensed brand frames from January 2023.

Tenite Renew uses more than 60% of sustainable materials made from bio-based and certified recycled content. By adopting Tenite Renew into sunglasses and optical frames, Marchon says it will maintain its commitment to sustainability and bring key benefits to consumers.

These benefits include the same premium look and feel of acetate, with the convenience of injection-moulded frames, which are durable, comfortable, and can be adjusted for a personalised fit.

“We are incredibly proud to build on our successful partnership and growing collaboration with Eastman,” said Thomas Burkhardt, President of Marchon Eyewear, Inc. “By joining forces again and introducing Tenite Renew in Marchon frames, we are able to offer our customers even more sustainable options in eyewear.”

Tenite Renew marks the third synergy between Marchon and Eastman

Tenite Renew marks the third synergy between Marchon and Eastman, further asserting Marchon’s commitment to social responsibility and bringing more sustainable practices to the eyewear industry.

The two companies announced their first partnership using Eastman’s Acetate Renew, a sustainable material produced via carbon renewal technology, in 2020. Earlier this year, Marchon then became the first global eyewear company to use Eastman’s Tritan Renew.

“Marchon is truly committed in implementing sustainable materials for frames and lenses across their portfolio as part of their Eyes on Tomorrow program,” said Rachel Oakley, Eyewear Segment Manager at Eastman. “After this successful year of collaboration, we are delighted that Marchon trusts Eastman once again by adopting Tenite Renew and offering their consumers sustainable solutions for a growing number of designs and applications.”

Beginning in January 2023, Nautica will be the first Marchon licensed brand to produce sunglasses and ophthalmic frames using Eastman’s Tenite Renew.
