Protect your peepers and the planet in sustainable wood specs from Grown
If your peepers are feeling a little naked, gift them a shiny new pair of shades from Byron Bay’s Grown. Not only do the sunglasses look pretty darn spiffy but they’re made from durable bamboo and hardwood so they’re lighter to hold (33-percent lighter, in fact) but also lighter on the environment than traditional plastic frames. Go you good thing!
Let’s face it, a decent pair of sunnies is pretty much a non-negotiable Queensland staple to protect your eyeballs from those nasty rays but who says you can’t look damn fine and do a little something something for the planet in the process? This is where Byron Bay’s Grown eyewear comes in. Grown was developed by a passionate group of surfers and water dogs with one simple idea, to design and produce original and sustainable wooden eyewear that looks great and does good. To that end, Grown’s materials are ethically sourced from managed forests, which are bound by the sustainable forestry management standards of the FSC.
Not satisfied with their efforts, the team went a step further and adopted a kind of conscious capitalism approach and decided to redistribute profits towards something that is meaningful to them. For every single pair of sunnies sold, Grown provides the gift of life to one orphaned or injured Australian animal through the brand’s giving partner WIRES (cue all of the happy feels). Want more? As a standard, all Grown wooden eyewear comes with Polarized lenses, a 100 day warranty and an industry first 180 day accident coverage, perfect for those accident prone among us! Oh and did we mention they float? No more losing your sunnies to the watery depths of the ocean.
