Sailing through the Sunday sunshine in my ethical @palasunglasses 🕶 I’ve been on the hunt for ethical and/or sustainable sunglasses, and I’ve seen some amazing companies working with great material and for great causes! A lot are still in the works, and I’ll share those with you once they launch, but let’s talk about Pala Sunglasses today! This UK brand has a similar business model to Warby Parker, where proceeds go to vision centers and dispensaries in Africa for those who need prescription eyewear. However, Pala glasses are half the cost of Warby Parker (including shipping). In addition, their sunniest are SO stylish! They are the most fashion forward frames I’ve ever seen, which come in a soft cloth pouch AND hand-woven hard case made from plastic bags (in Ghana). In summary: purchasing Pala Sunglasses protect your eyes oh so stylishly at a lower cost than other retailers, provide vision services and eyewear for Africans, and up-cycle plastic bags into durable hard cases.
