Guest - Parafina

What if leftovers, such as rubber, plastic or aluminum, would become cool and fashionable pieces?

Parafina Co., an eco-friendly eyewear brand, recycles waste from China, Malaysia, and Arabia and transforms them into beautiful sunglasses and eyeglasses.

According to Samuel Soria Santos, CEO and Partner at Parafina, it is important to be green, not only look green.

Reusing leftovers is much greener for the planet than creating products from scratch.

It’s crucial to make consumers understand that a recycled product has a story behind it, and it’s much more worthy than just a fashionable item.

Following this sustainable ethics, Parafina has become Certified B Corp in 2019.
