Welcome to ORIGEM!
We are a Portuguese project founded in 2017 with the goal of promoting bamboo as a sustainable, fair and affordable alternative to plastic in the eyewear industry.
In an industry dominated by big plastic and multinational corporations, ORIGEM has proved that it is possible to create a high quality optical product, ethically produced without harming the planet.
This vision has allowed us to build over the past 5 years a community with +2.000 clients spread across 5 continents, while planting +10.000 trees in reforestation projects around the world.
We truly believe in bamboo's revolutionary potential - the fastest growing plant in the planet - to end today's plastic dictatorship and the impact of destructive consumerism.
Plastic is yesterday, go bamboo 🌿
