In 2011, popular fashion label Juicy Couture launched the environmentally friendly ‘Choose Green’ designer range of sunglasses. With more people being aware of environmental issues, and choosing to live environmentally conscious lives, many designers have found innovative ways of catering to this growing market of people. Now, you no longer have to wear tie-dye and Birkenstocks to be environmentally friendly. You can still make a fashion statement, look chic, and help save the planet too.
Juicy Couture’s range of environmentally friendly designer sunglasses comes in three unique shapes; Jasmine (which is oval), Peony (which is a cat’s eye shape) and Fern (rounded square). So, you can get a pair that will suit your face shape. All of these shapes are available in different colors, including raspberry and tortoise.
What makes this collection environmentally friendly is that they are made from fifty-five percent renewable materials that are plant based, and they have bamboo decorations. When you purchase a pair of these sunglasses you will receive them in a pouch made of organic cotton canvas that has a soy ink print. As well as this, they are not too pricey, being much more affordable than some of the high-end designer labels. So you can be fashionable, save some money, and help save the planet!
Designing environmentally friendly clothes and accessories is growing in popularity, as is evident from Marc by Marc Jacobs sunglass design that is associated with a particular awareness raising campaign around the Atlantic Forest.
Usually, sunglasses are made of non-renewable materials, so it is a vast improvement in the industry, and hopefully more designers will follow in the steps of Juicy Couture and Marc Jacobs. All we need now is our favourites such as Tom Ford and Ray Ban sunglasses to ‘go green’, and everyone will be happy!
