We are so excited to bring you a truly sustainable sunglass brand that has flattering and timeless designs. Pala Eyewear does A LOT of good, we recommend you check out their website for even more info but here is a small blurb from their website:
"We are on a journey towards a sustainable fashion future. We want to protect our planet, and to do this we need to make our designs as sustainable as possible. This season we are continuing to innovate, offering both recycled acetate (made using otherwise binned factory offcuts) and bio-based designs."
They also give back!: "For every pair of sunglasses sold, we give back to eye-care programmes in Africa by providing grants to vision centres, dispensaries and screening."
"Things don’t stop there. We work alongside a Ghanaian-based NGO to support weaving communities to make our protective sunglasses cases. Woven using traditional methods utilising otherwise wasted plastic, we provide a trade and an income to help them empower themselves whilst upholding tradition (and recycling as we go!)."
Now onto the amazing designs:
When you usually go for round frames but want an extra edge. Meet the Lich, a classic circular unisex design with an angled brow line to keep things interesting without straying too far from the path. The best of both worlds. This sunglasses frame is grey tortoiseshell with graduate smoke lenses.
• Italian biodegradable, plant-based acetate frame
• Polarised anti-glare and anti-scratch lens
• 100% UVA/UVB protection
