Biodegradable 3D glasses


Let's talk about environment friendly 3D..

It is clear that we are currently riding on a 3D TV tidal wave, and this wave is set to get bigger in the coming months. And as with any new technology wave, we can expect to the traditional accessories that go with it appear on store shelves. In the case of 3D TV, the main accessory associated with the product is the 3D glasses. But as it stands today, the 3D glasses provided by our cinemas are plastic and are not really environmentally friendly. The CO2 emissions that are required to achieve 10 million plastic glasses are equivalent to the harmful emissions from combustion of 200 000 liters of oil. 

Based on this observation, Cereplast and Oculus 3D have stepped into the market place to offer 3D glasses made from bioplastic. These 2 companies have joined forces with a target of having these 3D glasses available in our cinemas this summer, to limit any more harm to the environment. 

For example, approximately 10 million pairs of 3D glasses will be used by viewers of Avatar and Alice in Wonderland. Imagine all these glasses in a huge dump ... at the end of the film. Cereplast prefers that these disposable products are made from materials that do not threaten the earth. The resin used for these green 3D glasses allows them to be degraded in less than 6 months, without leaving any toxic residues.
