Wooden and Bamboo sunglasses have been trend for the last couple of years, and for good reason. Below we’ve highlighted four of the key reasons you should make your next sunglasses bamboo-framed.
If making environmentally-friendly choices is important to you, then buying bamboo or wood frames should be a no-brainer. By avoiding metal or plastic our sunglasses are completely recyclable or biodegradable. Also, during the manufacturing process, we are not molding plastic which can emit harmful chemicals.
The weight of the sunglasses can depend on the model purchased, but in general wooden or bamboo sunglasses are going to feel light weight in comparison to metal or plastic sunglasses. Do you already forget where you put your sunglasses when they are sitting on top of your head? Just wait until you try our bamboo-frames, you will hardly feel them resting on your face!
Did you know that the tensile strength if plated bamboo cables is as strong or stronger than steel cables of the same size? And it becomes even stronger when it is wet, up to 20% stronger. All of this is great news for those of us that have a habit of dropping or sitting on our sunglasses. When you buy bamboo frames, you are buying quality that will last for years, no matter how many times it’s dropped.
As mentioned before, bamboo and wooden sunglasses have been on trend for a couple of years now. While they are very trendy they are also very unique and versatile. If you like to wear your style as a statement of pride, wooden frame are going to show you have a unique style and you are also educated about how your consumerism effects the planet. You will be wearing a piece of fashion that helps impoverished children have access to eye-care, is good for the environment, and helps promote the economy of the local African women who help create the products. You won’t just be wearing a new pair of glasses; you will be wearing a global impact. It doesn’t get more stylish than that.
