The Evolution of Sunglasses
Over the years the materials used to create sunglasses has evolved. Some of the most common materials used to create sunglasses have been metal and plastic. While these are not the only materials used to create eyewear, other materials have come onto the market. Why was there a need for new materials when making sunglasses? As the world started looking for materials that are more environmentally friendly, sunglass designers turned to using materials such as wood and bamboo.
Sunglasses created with bamboo and wood frames benefit the environment on many different levels. To start, creating sunglasses with metal and plastic are incredibly damaging to the environment during the manufacturing process. On the other hand, bamboo has the ability to grow without much water, or the use of pesticides, and fertilizers. Bamboo also grows faster and in a smaller area than wood, making it a more cost effective, and environmentally sound, material to use for sunglasses.

People may expect that using bamboo and wood frames would limit the options when designing sunglasses. The reality is there is no sacrificing in the design process when choosing to use bamboo and wood over plastic and metal. It is possible to find wood and bamboo frames in multiple colors, styles, and sizes. These frames can be used for standard sunglasses, prescription sunglasses, or sunglasses with tinted lenses. Wood frames also come in a variety of different types of wood so it is possible to find exactly the wood you want.
