Sustainable Bird Sunglasses

About Bird Sunglasses

Bird Sunglasses creates a range of high quality design-led frames made with sustainability and longevity in mind. Instead of using plastic, Bird Sunglasses uses a variety of different materials including sustainably-sourced wood, and bamboo along with durable aluminium cores.  With every pair sold, Bird Sunglasses donates a solar light to communities across Africa.

Share Your Sun

Solar lamps can offer a life-changing source of renewable electricity for millions of people who lack access to clean energy, and instead rely on toxic kerosene lamps that are hazardous to personal health and the environment. Through the ‘Share Your Sun’ partnership with award-wining charity, SolarAid, Bird Sunglasses donates one solar light for every pair of sunglasses sold. Bird Sunglasses protects our eyes from the powerful rays of the sun while harnessing that same energy to empower communities.
