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!)."
Malaika in Olive
Malaika’s square shape and clean silhouette is beautifully balanced. She provides a modern take on a design that draws its inspiration from the spirit of the Sixties. A slightly thicker sunglasses frame that works for any occasion. Made with more eco-friendly bio-acetate that is certified biodegradable.
