About

Welcome to the Silverback Sunglasses Kickstarter campaign. 100% biodegradable sunglasses that you can #neverlose. This is the future of sunglasses. 

Beautifully designed, high quality and 100% biodegradable - and with our #neverlose plan you get a free replacement every year for 3 years if anything happens to your sunglasses! 

Since our launch in 2016, we have seen a big increase in the awareness of the impact plastic is having on the environment.  We know that over half of the population lose or break their sunglasses every year and that’s a lot of unnecessary purchases and plastic!  We are committed to removing 100% of the plastic from our sunglasses by the end of 2019. This is the future of sunglasses.

In response, we have developed a brand new range of sunglasses which are 100% biodegradable. beautifully designed, and made of the highest quality materials - these sunglasses will look great on the faces of party-goers all over the world and be kind to our planet #madeforthewild

We want to make sure that we minimise the impact our products have and are looking to Kickstarter to help fund our new 100% biodegradable range.

We have our first three amazing designs with high quality polarised lenses that are 100% biodegradable with frames made from biodegradeable plastic.  Both have been tested to ISO 14855 standards.  They look and feel like 'normal' glasses and not lightweight on the face, which can be the challenge with more traditional 'eco' glasses that use materials like bamboo.

The science is that we use a compostable thermoplastic based on cellulose diacetate, which is a vegetal cellulose. They decompose the same way a tree leave does! 

 Beautifully designed, high-quality sunglasses that are 100% biodegradable plus #neverlose = the future of sunglasses.

Join us and become a Silverbacker today!

Silverback Sunglasses to date…

 Our existing range was launched in 2016 and includes six multi-coloured frames and two limited editions. Our Lenses are TAC polarized UV400 and our existing frames are a custom made polycarbonate, which means our frames are lightweight, strong and durable. Our customers like them:  

 In addition, our #neverlose plan changed the face of the sunglasses industry. The concept was created by our Founder, Matt Watson who was fed up with having to pay out again and again to replace his lost or broken decks. ‘NEVER LOSE’ means that if you break, scratch or lose your Silverbacks, we replace them free of charge, no questions asked, once a year for three years. This is how sunglasses should be bought!

These are some of the reasons our customers have given us for activating their #neverlose

For the last five yeas we've been bringing the sunshine to the party with our stunning range of sunglasses. We have searched out some of the brightest and best International parties… and through sponsorship and ticket giveaways, Silverback Sunglasses has been going wild at events around the world. 

But our journey has only just begun - and we want you to join us.   

So, if you like the idea of easily replacing your sunglasses whilst knowing that they aren't impacting the environment, chose a reward and become a Silverbacker!

Risks and challenges

The main risk we face on this product is making sure that manufacturing and production timeline doesn't drag out over the summer. We are in constant dialogue with our suppliers to make sure this doesn't happen but of course, something we must protect against. There is of course risk of damage in transit but we are confident we can mitigate this almost perfectly, given our experience with packing the products.
