After finishing our coffees, more questions surfaced because one of us broke a pair of really expensive sunglasses (the worst!), and we wondered why sunglasses cost so much, especially ones that don’t even protect our eyes very much. It made no sense.
That’s when our Aha! moment hit
Why don’t we make high quality plastic-free sunnies that actually shield our eyes and are… here’s a crazy idea… affordable!? 🤯 As we dove deeper into the ocean of this industry, we found that most sunglasses on the market aren’t eco-friendly and offer low quality eye protection.
This was a frustrating discovery since sunglasses are supposed to protect our eyes – THAT IS THEIR SOLE PURPOSE. And after realising they aren’t being made with materials that are safe for the environment, we decided to tackle that concern and seek change by sourcing the best organic elements to make eco-friendly, avant-garde, fashionable sunnies.
