Behind The Brand

What Makes Wapta special.

Our mission

We believe that you can look good and feel good at the same time. We use high quality Italian material that is 100% biodegradable and 100% recyclable to make our frames, meaning less plastic being produced.

Our mission is to make the world a more sustainable place and we're starting with reading glasses.

We also want kindness and community to be at the core of what we do. Did you know that 80% of homeless people need glasses? That's why for every pair purchased we donate a pair to someone in need.


- Eco-friendly frames -


Our frames are made using renewable sources meaning that they are 100% recyclable and 100% biodegradable. To create the frames we use fibres from cotton seeds and fibres from wood.

- Recyclable packaging -


You won't find plastic packaging from us. Our packaging is made from cardboard that can be recycled.

- Quality -


We don't use cheap plastic. Our frames are made from eco-friendly Italian acetate designed for a high quality finish.

- Buy one give one -


When you purchase a pair of Wapta readers we donate a pair of reading glasses to a homeless person.
