Most sunglasses are manufactured with materials such as plastic, metal and paint that leave behind large deposits of waste—often toxic—which contribute to a growing global crisis. Every year a colossal 2.12 billion tons of waste is dumped in landfills and the world's oceans. If put on trucks, this waste would wrap around the world 24 times. Though statistics like this are alarming, they are also becoming more transparent as a new generation of companies emerge to tackle some of the planet's most challenging problems.
All our frames are made from repurposed plastics and metals. The temples are either recycled plastic, or formed from natural bamboo or wood.
Featuring optical-quality tinted lenses with UVA and UVB protection as well as polarizing filters for glare reduction, our sunglasses are suitable for multiple uses, including as sports, or biking. All styles are packaged in a signature Blue Planet Eyewear glasses case.
Blue Planet Eyewear launched a revolutionary Visualize Change program in partnership with global humanitarian organizations such as SEE International, Direct Relief, Feed the Children and the Best Day Foundation. For every pair sold, Blue Planet donates a pair of corrective glasses to a person in need.
