Product Ethics & Tags
The Graduated Oversized Bamboo Sunglasses - Tortoise Shell product ethics are indicated below. To learn more about these product ethics and to see related products, follow the links below.
The sunglasses are nice enough, but horrifically overpackaged in several layers of disposable plastic, making the choice of bamboo glasses rather a futile gesture. I honestly think it might be more ethical to buy a regular plastic pair off a hook on the high-street. rnYou can do better than this greenwash! Other online ethical stores are switching to compostable and fully recyclable packaging, and you managed well enough with a larger order in a box, so please think a bit more about the small orders.
Very comfortable and look great too

Q: Hi I can't find the UV protection rating on your sunglasses metadata. Can you advise please or point me in the right directionrnThanks
A: Hi there, Many thanks for your query. The sunglasses are UV400 protected which means they have been optimized to prevent eye exposure to both UVA and UVB radiation. I hope this helps.
