Ethical & Sustainable Sunglasses We’re Lusting After
I’m always on the hunt for the perfect sunnies.
In the days BEF (Before Ethical Fashion) I would load up on $10 pairs from Cotton On, wear them for a few months and chuck them out when they became scratched or broken. It was quick, easy and cheap to find a new pair when the need arose.
These days, I’m a little more mindful with my purchases and over the past few years, I have struggled with finding good quality, ethically made sunglasses.
For a long time, the only options on the market have been bamboo and wooden frames. I happen to own a pair of wooden sunglasses, and I do like them, but not for everyday wear.
Fortunately, ethical sunglasses brands have quickly caught on to the fact that while wooden glasses are cute, not everybody wants to wear them.
The thing is, for fashion to be sustainable, it needs to be wanted and beautifully designed.
