Plant-based sunglasses built for life outdoors.
Our Mission Towards Sustainability
Our mission is to create sunglasses that enhance your time outdoors while working to protect the world around us. In our commitment to reduce environmental impacts, we use renewable resources in the manufacturing of our sunglass frames and lenses - eliminating the use of fossil fuels.
Ellume Polarized revolutionizes the way you see color. Made with plant-based materials, it is engineered to be as sustainable as it is technical. Our plant-based material allows for a high-purity lens for crisper, clearer vision all while reducing environmental impact. See the world’s natural colors with greater clarity and contrast with Ellume Polarized, the Zeal Optics plant-based lens.
See the world more clearly with Ellume Polarized. While other lenses are made from petroleum-based materials, Ellume Polarized uses a unique plant-based polymer as the bonding agent to deliver a high-purity lens for cleaner, crisper vision.
Reflected light and UV exposure can cause glare, eye fatigue, and sensitivity, all of which disrupt your view of the world around you. Ellume Polarized eliminates 99.9% of glare and blocks 100% of harmful UVA/B/C rays, protecting against the risk of long-term damage to your eyes from the sun’s harsh rays.
Ellume Polarized Options
Ellume Polarized Copper
Enhances contrast and depth perception by blocking harmful light rays that cause haze so you see greens, reds and blues more vividly.
Ellume Polarized Dark Grey
Reduces the intensity of bright sun and heavy glare to see richer, true color.
Ellume Polarized Horizon Blue
Blue mirror applied to Ellume Polarized Copper to increase the balance of saturation of the colors you see.

Z-Resin is derived from the castor plant and replaces the use of traditional plastics in our sunglass frames and Ellume Polarized lenses. The use of Z-Resin significantly reduces the amount of C02 produced during manufacturing.
Z-Lite Thin Injection
Z-Lite is our Z-Resin frame material that uses a thin injection process to allow for an ultra-lightweight sunglass frame for complete versatility no matter the activity.
From the frame to the lens, all Zeal Optics sunglasses are designed to stand up to everyday life as well as the world’s harshest conditions.
Designed for long days outside in changing light conditions, the Zeal Optics Auto Sun collection combines photochromic technology and polarized protection into a single lens for an unsurpassed visual experience.
