Smithfield, RI: FGX International Inc, a leading designer and manufacturer of non-prescription reading glasses, announced the launch of its Green View collection today, a line of eco-friendly, over-the-counter reading glasses now available in stores.  This special collection features frames made of 100 percent recycled materials, prescription-quality lenses* and a renewable fiber case.

“Foster Grant and Magnivision are proud to introduce our new Green View collection to consumers,” said Bob Grow, Executive Vice President, Product Development.  “We recognize the need for affordable and quality-reading glasses, as well as the need and our consumers’ desire to maximize environmental benefits.  As with our other lines, the Green View collection offers fashion trend frames, quality lenses and accessible price points that our consumers can appreciate.”

The Green View collection includes men’s, women’s, and unisex styles with plastic frames made from 100 percent recycled materials. Lenses are hard-coated, thin, scratch-resistant and designed to reduce distortion.  Spring hinges on most styles ensure a close and comfortable fit.  The collection may be found at large retailers, including Walmart, Walgreens, Barnes & Noble and CVS stores nationwide, with prices starting at $16.
