In this article we’ll take a close look at some of the best eco-friendly sunglasses provided by sustainable brands around the world. We’ll talk about the sustainable materials they use, the social impact and environmental impact they have, and show-case some of our favorite pairs.


Who doesn’t love a sexy pair of sunglasses? Not only do they make you look good, but they help shield your peepers from harmful UV rays that can damage them. As an added bonus, they can even help in preventing wrinkles because they reduce the need to squint on bright, sunshiny days.

Unfortunately, most sunglasses are difficult to recycle and are made from wasteful materials like plastic. According to Statista, the United States is home to the largest sunglasses market in the world, accounting for 4.7 billion dollars in sales. To make matters worse, it’s reported that 55 percent of adults in the United States lose or break their sunglasses every year. Broken sunglasses typically end up in landfills. Plastic frames can take anywhere from 10-1000 years to decompose and glass in landfills can take up to a million years to decompose. Yes, you read that right. One million…

Fortunately, there are many emerging makers of sunglasses that are aware of the negative impact traditional specs have on the environment. They’ve made it their mission to help protect the environment by producing environmentally friendly sunglasses made using sustainable practices and materials. Below, we’ll cover 50 different sustainable sunglass brands and some of our favorite eco-friendly sunglasses.

The Best Brand for Eco-Friendly Sunglasses

Sunski Sunglasses

Products: Women’s Sunglasses | Men’s Sunglasses | Kid’s Sunglasses
Impact: 1% of all profits donated to environmental non-profits| Lifetime warranty to reduce waste | Certified Carbon Neutral
Price: $58 – $89

Sunski has done it. They’ve created the perfect eco-friendly sunglasses for environmentally-conscious people who want to look good, protect their eyes, and help save our planet. Not only are they ridiculously affordable, but they come with a lifetime warranty. As part of their commitment to reducing waste, Sunski offers to repair your glasses if they ever break.

Sunski’s stylish sunnies stack up aesthetically against designer frames from brands like Ray Ban and Gucci and each of their 20+ styles offer a variety of color options. Every pair comes equipped with polarized lenses, an eco-friendly protective hard-case, and a micro-fiber cloth.

Sunski also helps reduce unnecessary carbon pollution from shipping and returns by allowing you to virtually try before you by. Through the magic of the internet, they are able to scan your face and simulate what the glasses will look like on you from various angles. After you’ve uploaded your scan, every pair of glasses you browse will automatically appear on your face. Witchcraft at its finest.

Go on… buy a pair. No, buy three… and tell everyone you know!

Sunglasses Made from Recycled Fabrics

Mosevic Sunglasses

Sustainable Materials: Recycled denim
Headquarters: Cornwall, UK
Products: Unisex Denim Sunglasses
Price: $248

Handcrafted in Cornwall, Mosevic sunglasses are made in small batches recycled denim.

Currently, Mosevic offers five styles of their show-stopping denim sunglasses – each of which comes with polarized lenses by Zeiss and a two-year warranty. They offer free shipping worldwide. They are lightweight, comfortable, and, don’t worry, they’re waterproof too. If they get wet they’ll darken in color (just like your jeans would), but they’ll dry up and return to normal shortly after.

It is worth noting they do currently use resin to make their sunglasses, so they aren’t 100% made sustainably-made. However, they are working towards sourcing and using plant-based resin in the future.

Sunglasses Made from Recycled Skateboards

7plis Sunglasses

Image Source: 7plis Etsy Page

Sustainable Materials: Upcycled Skateboards
Headquarters: Nancy, France
Products: Unisex Sunglasses | Watches | Many other things
Price: $560

Looking for an eco-friendly pair of sunglasses that are as unique as they are sustainable? 7plis’ got you covered. Every pair of 7plis sunglasses are hand-made from recycled skateboards and no two pairs are alike. These stunning, sustainable sunnies come with polarized lenses, an eco-friendly hard-case that incorporates a skateboard bearing, an organic cotton soft-pouch, protective oil, and a mini keychain replica of your sunglasses. Each pair comes with a unique serial number and a history of the skateboard used to make your shades.

We think it’s really rad that the sunglasses come with a story – you’ll learn about the skater, their favorite trick, and the board they used that you will be wearing on your face. So cool.

While 7plis may cost a pretty penny, it’s a small price to pay for one-of-a-kind, sustainable sunglasses with a history. And if you can’t justify spending $500+ on their sunnies, you can always explore their shop for other accessories made from recycled skateboards like earrings, rings, and keychains.

Dex Shades

Price: $78 – $109

Each pair comes with polarized lenses, an eco-friendly bamboo hard-case, and a 90-day 100% money-back guarantee.

These unique shades used to be used for kickflips and ollies, but now they can be used for swimming, surfing, paddleboarding, boating, and other water-related activities. Dex Shades and their bamboo cases can float so you don’t have to worry about them sinking to the bottom of the ocean and creating more pollution.

The goal of this new editor is to make adding rich content to WordPress simple and enjoyable. This whole post is composed of pieces of content—somewhat similar to LEGO bricks—that you can move around and interact with. Move your cursor around and you’ll notice the different blocks light up with outlines and arrows. Press the arrows to reposition blocks quickly, without fearing about losing things in the process of copying and pasting.

What you are reading now is a text block the most basic block of all. The text block has its own controls to be moved freely around the post…

… like this one, which is right aligned.

Headings are separate blocks as well, which helps with the outline and organization of your content.

A Picture is Worth a Thousand Words

Handling images and media with the utmost care is a primary focus of the new editor. Hopefully, you’ll find aspects of adding captions or going full-width with your pictures much easier and robust than before.

Of Mountains & Printing Presses

Try selecting and removing or editing the caption, now you don’t have to be careful about selecting the image or other text by mistake and ruining the presentation.

The Inserter Tool

Imagine everything that WordPress can do is available to you quickly and in the same place on the interface. No need to figure out HTML tags, classes, or remember complicated shortcode syntax. That’s the spirit behind the inserter—the (+) button you’ll see around the editor—which allows you to browse all available content blocks and add them into your post. Plugins and themes are able to register their own, opening up all sort of possibilities for rich editing and publishing.

Go give it a try, you may discover things WordPress can already add into your posts that you didn’t know about. Here’s a short list of what you can currently find there:

  • Text & Headings
  • Images & Videos
  • Galleries
  • Embeds, like YouTube, Tweets, or other WordPress posts.
  • Layout blocks, like Buttons, Hero Images, Separators, etc.
  • And Lists like this one of course 🙂

Visual Editing

A huge benefit of blocks is that you can edit them in place and manipulate your content directly. Instead of having fields for editing things like the source of a quote, or the text of a button, you can directly change the content. Try editing the following quote:

The editor will endeavor to create a new page and post building experience that makes writing rich posts effortless, and has “blocks” to make it easy what today might take shortcodes, custom HTML, or “mystery meat” embed discovery.

Matt Mullenweg, 2017

The information corresponding to the source of the quote is a separate text field, similar to captions under images, so the structure of the quote is protected even if you select, modify, or remove the source. It’s always easy to add it back.

Blocks can be anything you need. For instance, you may want to add a subdued quote as part of the composition of your text, or you may prefer to display a giant stylized one. All of these options are available in the inserter.

You can change the amount of columns in your galleries by dragging a slider in the block inspector in the sidebar.

Media Rich

If you combine the new wide and full-wide alignments with galleries, you can create a very media rich layout, very quickly:

Sure, the full-wide image can be pretty big. But sometimes the image is worth it.

The above is a gallery with just two images. It’s an easier way to create visually appealing layouts, without having to deal with floats. You can also easily convert the gallery back to individual images again, by using the block switcher.

Any block can opt into these alignments. The embed block has them also, and is responsive out of the box:

You can build any block you like, static or dynamic, decorative or plain. Here’s a pullquote block:

Lorem Ipsum is simply dummy text of the printing and typesetting industry. Lorem Ipsum has been the industry's standard dummy text ever since the 1500s, when an unknown printer took a galley of type and scrambled it to make a type specimen book. It has survived not only five centuries, but also the leap into electronic typesetting, remaining essentially unchanged. It was popularised in the 1960s with the release of Letraset sheets containing Lorem Ipsum passages, and more recently with desktop publishing software like Aldus PageMaker including versions of Lorem Ipsum.

  • Layout blocks, like Buttons, Hero Images, Separators, etc.
  • And Lists like this one of course 🙂

Visual Editing

A huge benefit of blocks is that you can edit them in place and manipulate your content directly. Instead of having fields for editing things like the source of a quote, or the text of a button, you can directly change the content. Try editing the following quote:

The editor will endeavor to create a new page and post building experience that makes writing rich posts effortless, and has “blocks” to make it easy what today might take shortcodes, custom HTML, or “mystery meat” embed discovery.

Matt Mullenweg, 2017

The information corresponding to the source of the quote is a separate text field, similar to captions under images, so the structure of the quote is protected even if you select, modify, or remove the source. It’s always easy to add it back.

Blocks can be anything you need. For instance, you may want to add a subdued quote as part of the composition of your text, or you may prefer to display a giant stylized one. All of these options are available in the inserter.

You can change the amount of columns in your galleries by dragging a slider in the block inspector in the sidebar.

Media Rich

If you combine the new wide and full-wide alignments with galleries, you can create a very media rich layout, very quickly:

Sure, the full-wide image can be pretty big. But sometimes the image is worth it.

The above is a gallery with just two images. It’s an easier way to create visually appealing layouts, without having to deal with floats. You can also easily convert the gallery back to individual images again, by using the block switcher.

Any block can opt into these alignments. The embed block has them also, and is responsive out of the box:

You can build any block you like, static or dynamic, decorative or plain. Here’s a pullquote block:

Thanks for testing Gutenberg!

Lorem Ipsum is simply dummy text of the printing and typesetting industry. Lorem Ipsum has been the industry's standard dummy text ever since the 1500s, when an unknown printer took a galley of type and scrambled it to make a type specimen book. It has survived not only five centuries, but also the leap into electronic typesetting, remaining essentially unchanged. It was popularised in the 1960s with the release of Letraset sheets containing Lorem Ipsum passages, and more recently with desktop publishing software like Aldus PageMaker including versions of Lorem Ipsum.
