Genusee eyewear is Made in Flint, Michigan from recycled plastic water bottles as a result of the Flint Water Crisis. Genusee is bringing a new manufacturing legacy to the city of Flint by creating jobs; turning the surplus of plastic waste caused by the man-made water crisis into closed loop eyewear. It is not just about being able to recycle materials. We want to upcycle single use plastic into products that have more value and purpose. We are able to upcycle 15 water bottles with every purchase. The majority of our supply chain is uniquely within 188 mile radius of Flint which allows us to support other small businesses and our local economy while reducing carbon emissions that are usually the result of transportation from an international supply chain.
