This is one area we often forget about in the world of sustainability. Yet it is so important to own a good pair of sustainable sunglasses. With or without prescriptions it is imperative, this day and age, to protect our eyes from harmful uv rays. Why would we not purchase from brands that have the best interest of our environment at heart? Here are 5 Sustainable eyewear brands we hope you will come to love and support.
I am beyond excited to introduce to you a brand that produces prescription glasses made ethically. They use a selection of bio-plastics, sustainable woods, ocean plastics, hand assembled, BPA and phthalate free acrylics, and cotton acetates. To add to that they also plant 5 trees for every pair of glasses sold. Wether it is eye glasses or sunglasses you need with or without prescriptions and even with a blue light filter as an option. Eco Eyewear has a fabulous collection to choose from. The hard case is also great to protect from them getting damaged when in your handbag.
Zeal Optics are definitely extremely innovative, making their sustainable sunglasses from a combination of grass and recycled plastic bottles. These glasses are super stylish and an absolute dream to look through. The quality of the polarised lenses is really notable. So without compromising style or durability these sunglasses are among the most sustainably made on the market. We really love them and the brand behind them and highly recommend you try a pair for yourselves.
Bamboo is one of the fastest growing plants on the planet. It uses less water than traditional woods, and puts more oxygen back into the air! Plus it doesn’t require chemical fertilizers, making it safer for the earth and farmers. Not only is bamboo naturally lightweight, it’s also stronger than steel!
Solo eyewear is also on our list, with amazing polarised lenses that make the world look a whole lot nicer when you look through them. They work with repurposed wood, repurposed bamboo and Cellulose Acetate (Cellulose acetate is an eco-friendly material made from cellulose obtained from wood produced in sustainably managed forests . After disposal, it returns to nature through the activity of water and microorganisms.)
So as you can see they are not only doing the right thing but they are giving back to the world, helping people in need. Can you imagine a world where we all did that? We can make that happen by supporting these brands that are truly making a difference, and casting our vote by where we spend our money.
I really want to remind people how important each and every one of our actions is, and the impact it has. We have been researching the sustainable world for almost a decade now and it is so wonderful to see all these amazing brands, and the people behind them, supporting each other and the mission to give back to our earth!
Thank you!!!! For if you are reading this you are a part of my soul family… thank you for taking the time to research products and trying to find the better option.
Light weight, classy and sustainably made with bamboo, you can barely feel you are even wearing glasses. They are polarised and look just as good on him than they do on her, if I may say so myself.
What we most love about this brand is their dedication to our future generations, Swell Vision is a sponsor for the Green School in Bali, supporting our future green change-makers. So we highly recommend them for their products as well as their support to our green community.
