From Reclaimed Wood Sunglasses to Chic Lumber Shades

 - Aug 29, 2014
While the idea of eco-friendly sunglasses might seem like a rather niche concept, we're seeing a real boom in the ways that brands are making designs more sustainable in design and beyond. The most popular approach is to use recycled materials (think skateboards and vinyl records), but we're also seeing materials like bamboo -- a highly resilient, renewable resource -- being used to make sunnies.

As the green movement in the fashion industry continues, we're seeing things like eco-friendly sunglasses being just the tip of the iceberg. Everything from shoes to shirts are being given an eco overhaul to make the idea of fast fashion a more sustainable concept going forth into the coming seasons and beyond.
