Bambooka glasses are made from a species of giant bamboo. Bamboo is not only Strong and Sustainable it grows so fast - Up to a metre a day- and its carbon dioxide absorption far out performs wood, plus we do not have to worry about depleting our rain forest or adding to the plastic pollution.
These stylish glasses not only look amazing, are ethically made and are kind to the environment, these glasses actually do good too! The designers Bambooka, are a non-profit organisation that works with the charity Vision Aid Overseas. The international charity are fighting to end poverty to transform access to eye care. For every pair sold it pays for an eye test and vision correction for those in need in five African countries.
Look stylish whilst helping others!
The dark brown bamboo with metal rims and frame are the distinct style of the Touareg design. Touareg is named after the Berber people who live in the North African deserts. Their simple, traditional and unassuming nomadic lifestyle inspired this nostalgic Bambooka design, a style that was also favoured by Malcolm X.
At the end of life simply pop the lenses out and they can be turned in to reading glasses or popped in to your compost to biodegrade!
