World's first recycled sunglasses.

Single-use plastics create a massive threat to the ecosystem. luckily, there are companies around the world that are trying to come up with techniques to recycle such materials to reduce their harmful impact. One of the company that is doing its part is Without by Ashaya.

Anish Malpani, founder of the company, took to Twitter to post a video that displays what they do and its process. "This has been the hardest thing I have ever been a part of. Finally: Presenting the world's first recycled sunglasses made from packets of chips, right here in India!" he shared as he tweeted the video.

"Not just packets of chips, but we recycle all kinds of ‘impossible-to-recycle’ multi-layered plastic packaging (MLP) – think chocolate wrappers, milk packets, essentially any flexible packaging," mentions the company website.

"We have spent the last two years working hard in a lab here in Pune and found a way to not merely recycle it, but to reinvigorate it. We chemo-mechanically extract materials from this crappy waste using our patent-pending technology and convert them into sunglasses (and coasters)," it explains.

Take a look at the video:


The video was posted a day back. After being shared, the clip has amassed over 10,000 views and the numbers are only increasing. Additionally, the post has also received several of likes and comments.

Take a look at some of the comments:

“A. go to shark tank! B. take my money (do you do prescription based glasses?)” shared a Twitter user. “Wow!!!This is amazing. Congratulations and can’t wait to see how far Ashaya goes. Well well done mate,” expressed another. “Congrats man this is dope!” posted a third. “What a lovely idea! Going to pick one,” wrote a fourth.
