END OF LIFE
It's been a labour of love, getting rid of traditional hinges, and metal bits to ensure that Pela has perfected a sustainable pair of frames that will completely biodegrade in a landfill. They call this a "graceful end of life".
Pela wants to create a waste free future, and believes that the technology exists to make this a reality but it just takes the right company with the right community to make these products the new normal.
