Green Fashion Monday: Reclaimed Shades
On Fashion Monday, we highlight a hip, green fashion item. Got a stylish eco-friendly product to recommend? Tell us about it and look for it in an upcoming blog post.
For these dog days of July, a cheery, effective, and sustainably-produced pair of shades can frame a greener world (and protect your view of it). The snappy Eco-Friendly Preppie Retro Sunglasses from ICU Eyewear are made from recycled plastic. The glasses come in root beer or black, cost a cool $22, and look real swell. ICU also makes an attractive wayfarer style (Oprah's a fan).
For someone with a touch more padding in the pocketbook, Earth Conscious Optic, which not only received an Environmental Claims Validation for its 95% recycled products but also plants a tree for every pair of glasses sold, offers a variety of styles including this aviator, all for $129.
In the best world, consumption doesn’t consume, it repurposes. So see green, even when directly facing the sun.
