Eco-Friendly Sunglasses

I am in the market for a new pair of sunglasses. Snow will be coming soon, and the glare of the sun off of so much white can be killer when driving to and from work.

However I am not interested in contributing to the unethical waste of plastic or metal sunglasses, that almost all seem to be prone to.

I did discover iWood Eco-Friendly Wooden Sunglasses which actually look pretty snazzy. However, at $350 a pop, they are certainly out of my budget, as well as most consumers I would imagine. Disappointing.

Despite the fact I would love to have wooden sunglasses, I did run across Equation LLC. which claims to have 100% recycled and reconditioned sunglasses, and at a much more reasonable price. So until a sane manufacturer creates a set of wooden sunglasses for normal consumers, no wooden sunglasses for me.

  1. Surely using recycled plastic from drink bottles would be more eco friendly?

    Nige, I think that’s a fantastic idea, but am not certain any company has moved forward with that method yet.
