Smith Evolve Googles

In 2008 Smith introduced goggles made from 96% re-ground urethane. Utilizing recycled material from other companies, they reduced their dependency on virgin urethane. As the next step in Smith's Evolve program, they have integrated Merquinsa's Pearlthane ECO bio-TPU into their goggle line wherever possible. This material is composed of 40% bio-based material, derived from plant-based oils. To top it off the Evolve packaging has been minimized and made from recycled and recyclable post-consumer products and uses vegetable based inks. All of the Evolve packaging is FSC certified.
