Earth Day is just around the corner and we know you’ll want to do your part by going as green as possible for the celebrations this Sunday. You’re probably already conscious about what products you use and how much energy you consume, but just in case you need a little something extra to go with your eco-friendly attitude, here are some fabulous sunnies and specs to top off your look.
For their special eco collections, many brands rely on the oil from castor beans and natural sources instead of petroleum based products to reduce their carbon footprint like Stella McCartney, Marc by Marc Jacobs, VonZipper and Zeal Optics. On the other hand, Oakley, eco by Summer Rayne Oakes and ICU Eyewear utilize other options like recycled, reclaimed and excess materials and sustainable bamboo. Marchon Global Collections is also doing their part and created an eco-friendly folding eyewear case to reduce carbon emissions from transportation, production and storage.
It’s also great to know that your new green frames support a worthy cause. Marc by Marc Jacobs makes a generous contribution to The Nature Conservancy in efforts to restore the Atlantic Forest. eco by Summer Rayne Oakes has partnered with Trees for the Future and Mezimbite Forest Centre and will plant one tree for every pair of frames sold. Lastly, a portion of the proceeds from Oakley’s Bob Burnquist Fuel Cell frames will to the Action Sports Environmental Coalition.
One thing is for sure, all of your friends will be green with envy once they see you sporting one of these hot frames!
