According to the company, the device was developed with “Eastman Trēva engineering bioplastic that contains more than 21% bio-based content derived from sustainably harvested trees”. With this, the brand reduces the use of plastic that harms the environment. The company emphasizes that it does this without compromising the headphone’s sound quality.

“We are a company that has always had sustainability as part of our mission. Historically, we have achieved this by using wood and other natural or recyclable components. This created a challenge with new product development because we had to minimize the use of plastic. Trēva offered us the opportunity to develop headphones in an environmentally responsible way, while meeting our stringent acoustic performance standards.”
