A lasting alliance: ecology at the service of the economy
The number you see here was the starting point of this business adventure, as we are mindful of the environment and access to optical care for our customers. Together, we are building a more responsible future for the eyewear industry with a community eager to be part of societal issues that concern us all.
AT SEECLY, SUSTAINABLE EYEWEAR PRIMES OVER GREENWASHING!
When we talk about eco-friendliness, it is important to understand what a truly eco-responsible model is. On average, nearly 22 million pairs of glasses and sunglasses are sold in France each year. This huge number can be explained by prescription renewals and by an increasing number of glasses wearers, partly due to our ultra-connected lifestyle to screens. So what do we do with our old glasses ? While some companies or brands offer recycling, it’s no lie that most of the time, our old glasses end up collecting dust in our homes.
Our second-hand concept fits into a circular economy scheme since it is based on this very simple principle.
The big fuzz of environmental impact
While we know today the environmental impact of many industries such as textiles or food products, there is no study on the composition of glasses and their environmental impact. The only certainty is that the production of glasses is mainly located in low-cost countries like China for example. This production is made from highly polluting materials: metal (stainless steel, titanium...) and cellulose acetate, a mixture of cotton or wood fibers with petrochemical solvents. So when you buy a second-hand pair of glasses rather than a new one, you know that no raw material harmful to the environment has been used.
We are 100% honest in admitting that, yes, freight transport (so our deliveries) has its share of carbon emissions. However, if you opt for a second-hand frame that you have delivered, the carbon footprint of your order will always be significantly lower than the simple purchase of a new pair of glasses. On our side, we work to reduce and offset these emissions to have a carbon balance as balanced as possible.
Seecly: the commitment of an entire industry
The optical industry is lagging behind in environmental terms. But today, large groups and manufacturers are starting to mobilize. From the production of guaranteed Origine France glasses or those made from recycled materials, to companies promoting the glasses recycling, and so on, the transition is certainly under way !
At Seecly, we allow opticians and glasses manufacturers to meet the requirements of the AGEC Law, the anti-waste law for the circular economy, by offering them to make their unsold items available on Seecly and thereby engage in an approach of environmental & societal impact.

We have made this commitment an essential pillar of our brand because we are convinced that fashion and optics can rhyme with durability and respect for our planet.
Our responsible approach is expressed through several concrete actions :
First of all, by offering second-hand glasses, we help reduce waste and preserve natural resources. Each pair of glasses bought or sold on Seecly thus extends the lifespan of these precious objects, while offering everyone a second chance to access quality optical care at an affordable price.
In addition, our certified opticians, based in Aix-en-Provence in the South of France, refurbish and rejuvenate each pair of glasses before they go on sale on the platform. This step not only guarantees the optical quality of the glasses but also limits the environmental impact related to the production of new frames.
Finally, Seecly commits to a circular economy by encouraging its customers to sell their old glasses on the platform, thus promoting a more environmentally friendly mode of consumption.
Every gesture counts, and together, we can contribute to a more sustainable future for our planet. By joining the Seecly community, you actively participate in this responsible approach and become part of a movement that combines fashion, optics, and environmental protection.
