One of the questions we get asked most at WoodyGlass is, “Why did you choose to make Bamboo Sunglasses?”. This question for us, while it has a simple answer, is not a simple question. The reasons we decided to start designing bamboo sunglasses starts about 2 years ago.
We wanted to design a product that was environmentally friendly but still remained stylish and tough. We had looked at and experimented with different kinds of native woods such as oak and pine. While these woods looked good, they lacked the eco-friendliness of bamboo.
You see, bamboo is not actually a wood at all. It’s a grass. This makes a difference because when bamboo is harvested, it grows back, just like the grass in your front yard. This makes bamboo an excellent choice of materials to use in sunglasses.
Not only is bamboo extremely Eco Friendly, but it is also lightweight….lightweight enough in fact if you drop any of your WoodyGlass Sunglasses Bamboo models in the water….THEY FLOAT!! This means if you’re at the lake, river, ocean, whatever….you don’t have to worry about losing your sunglasses to the depths again!
One more advantage of bamboo is that it is extremely tough….in fact the tensile strength of bamboo is actually stronger than steel!
Some of our most popular 100% Bamboo Sunglass models are the Oxfords Witmarks and Sophias. If you’re looking for a pair of Eco-Friendly Sunglasses that are stylish, strong and unique but still won’t break the bank, look no further than the Bamboo Sunglasses from WoodyGlass!….You’ll be glad you did!
