With the summer sun on the way, it’s important to protect your eyes from damaging UVA and UVB rays. Thanks to some forward-thinking designers, it’s possible to look stylish while doing your part for the environment. Eco-friendly sunglasses now make it possible for you to keep your commitment to sustainability and look fashionable as well.
Designer Stella McCartney has introduced a new line of eco-friendly sunglasses (watch out for sound on that website) this season. The sustainable collection includes seven designs in both metal and plastic frames, with an aim towards using raw materials from natural resources.
ECO offers collections for men and women in several different designs and styles. The company’s eyewear is made of 95% recycled material and they promise to plant a tree for each frame sold.
If you’re looking for something unique, DRIFT Eyewear creates their hand-crafted frames from fair-source wood that’s Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) certified. They also donate 1% of their net sales towards conservation efforts as part of the 1% for the Planet program.
