Alpine F1 team finds optical performance partner in Shamir

Alpine F1 team finds optical performance partner in Shamir

It sounds obvious, and yet it is a unique collaboration in the Formula 1 world: the Alpine F1 team is partnering with Shamir Optical Industry in a Vision Performance Lab to ensure their drivers and all other team members have the best vision possible...

When you go as fast as a Formula 1 race car driver does, you want, or better said: you need perfect vision. It takes a millisecond for conditions to change and in that millisecond drivers need to make a decision that will have enormous consequences for their safety, based mostly on what they see. Or don't see. Strangely enough, there hasn't been that much attention to the way vision influences race car driving performances. Until now. Alpine F1 team has found a partner in Shamir, a producer of high-quality lenses. Shamir has been developing and producing lenses since the 1970s and has taken a leading position worldwide in incorporating scientific discoveries into their lenses.



But what is a vision performance lab exactly? Engineers of both Alpine and Shamir will be researching new technologies to improve both racing performances and safety conditions. No more foggy goggles for the pit crew, glare from low sunlight or distorted colors for the drivers. Expertise from both fields will be combined in the search for the highest quality lenses that perform perfectly under all conditions. New developments can be easily tested and if necessary adjusted to the personal needs of the Alpine F1 team members.



It is no coincidence that Alpine and Shamir found each other. Both share the same values: high performance, innovation, precision, safety and teamwork. Antoine Magnan, CEO of strategic partnerships at Alpine, says: 'At Alpine we always look for collaborations with only the best brands. Together, we aim to develop new technologies and materials that will enhance Formula 1 performances, but that will also be useful and interesting for consumers outside of this laboratory that is Formula 1.'

ECO eyewear wins Seventeen magazine's sustainable style award

ECO eyewear wins Seventeen magazine's sustainable style award

Making sustainable fashion choices is not as easy as it might sound. Loads of brands boast about being sustainable, but only a few actually are. There is so much more to take into account than recycled packaging or trying to reduce carbon footprint...



So, how do you know that when a brand calls itself sustainable, it actually is? To make life easier, American magazine Seventeen handed out their #sustainablestyleawards of 2021 to fashion and accessories brands that truly try to make the world a better place.



ECO eyewear is the proud winner of the award for best sustainable eyewear brand. Why? Because their frames are made of 95 % recycled metals, bio-based castor oil and recycled ocean plastics. And anyone who has seen Netflix's documentary Seaspiracy  knows just how much plastic garbage is floating around in our oceans right now. The Great Pacific Garbage Patch - the world's largest collection of floating plastic garbage - consists of 46% of old fishing nets. That's why ECO eyewear is recycling exactly that into their optical frames and sunglasses. Together with the NGO Waste Free Oceans, they have turned over 30 tons of recycled plastic into eyewear.



Add to that the fact that their packaging is completely made from recycled and biodegradable materials. And last but not least, they plant a tree for every frame that is purchased. So, they are cleaning up oceans and building forests at the same time. If that isn't sustainable, we don't know what is. And of course, no compromises are made in the style or quality department.



Besides an award for best sustainable eyewear brand, awards were handed out by Seventeen for best denim brand, best shoe brand and even the best sustainable brand for face masks. Click here to discover all those brands that really want to make a change for a better world!
