Why should nature lovers shy away from the fashion scene? To be green chic, here's exactly the accessory you'll need, especially when hanging out in the sun during that protest rally.

These iWood sunglasses from The Green Loop are hand-made from sustainable harvested bamboo. However, the $350 price tag might just make you think twice about whether its better to get those cheaper plastic ones and donate the rest to a green charity.
