Velvet Eyewear Recycle Program

Velvet's Recycle Reward Program

Posted by Cindy Hussey on

Most of our readers are aware of our Velvet Style Boxes that contain three sunglasses in every box. When we launched the Style Box we knew it would be a success due to its value and we were betting that women would be thrilled to have three pairs of sunglasses instead of just one pair. WOW! Imagine never having to settle for just one pair & you always have a "freshie" pair of sunglasses for your face. The sheer number of Style Boxes that women are buying inspired us to think one step further about our customers and our environment too. So we started our Recycle Reward Program. The program is simple. Send in your used Velvet Sunglasses (or any sunglasses) and we will credit your Velvet Reward account for the sunglasses you send to us. Now there is absolutely NO reason to justify keeping an old scratched pair of sunglasses that are blurring your vision. Plus we will ensure they don’t end up in our overflowing landfills or more importantly damaging our environment. These stats are earth shattering.

In 2018 according to USEPA data, Institute of Scrap Recycling Industries (ISRI) trade statistics, 38.5 million tons of plastic waste was generated. A staggering 31.5 million tons of plastic waste was sent to landfills. Not only is our plastic consumption at an all time high our recycling rates are dropping as well. ISRI statistics express that the U.S. plastic recycling rate has sunk from 9.1% in 2015 to 4.4% in 2018. Let's get on the program.

You can use our Velvet Recycle Rewards Program to clean your clutter, purchase new sunglasses, and save the environment. Here's how it works:

Ship your unwanted sunglasses to us:
Velvet Eyewear
851 Broken Sound Pkwy NW, Suite 122
Boca Raton, FL 33487
Five Reward Points will be added to your account per pair of sunglasses. We'll recycle all of your unwanted sunglasses & credit your Rewards account up to 25 points every three months.
Velvet will prepare all the unwanted sunglasses for recycling.
Love, Velvet
