Slip on Sustainable Luxury with Gold & Wood Sunglasses

Gold & Wood sunglasses are the ultimate in green eyewear. Sustainable, almost 100% biodegradable, and with a luxurious finish, the Gold & Wood Star model is crafted entirely out of all-natural products—namely wood.

Exotic woods from different African countries as well as Brazil and Canada are used for the Gold & Wood Star sunglasses. Other models from Gold & Wood use genuine buffalo horn, but the animal isn’t hurt. The horn is actually a by-product of cattle-farming, and it does grow back! Also, as TreeHugger notes, the sunglasses go through almost 20 production steps that includes a multi-layered wood lamination process, which may explain the brand’s higher prices.
