A Ukrainian start-up called Ochis has developed a range called Ochis Coffee- where glasses frames are made from coffee grounds.
The majority of glasses and sunglasses are still made from petroleum-based plastic. Ochis Coffee comes with a new sustainable alternative: a frame made from coffee grounds: the mulchy coffee bean byproduct that usually gets thrown away before your drink has cooled.
The grounds are mixed with flax and a biopolymer based on vegetable oil before being moulded into a brick shape. The frames are then cut using a computer.
