We’re no meteorologists, but if it never rains in Southern California, that means it’s pretty much sunny all the time… right? Well, to help deal with the miserable existence of living where it’s sunny all the time (feel sorry for us, don’t you?), we’ve just received a shipment of Yellow108 handcrafted bamboo sunglasses that are both eco-friendly and super stylish.
To go along with the lightweight and durable natural bamboo frames, Yellow108 has ramped up the quality by using premium Carl Zeiss lenses for their sunglasses, which provide 100% UV protection. Good for the environment, good for your eyes and good looking – that’s a killer combo.
The sunglasses are available in three different styles – Classic, Flat Top and Round About – with the Classic Blue and Flat Top Blue available in your choice of fade or mirror lenses.
Yellow108 is a Los Angeles based headwear company specializing in sustainable hats and accessories made from salvaged and recycled materials, including plastic bottles, felt and wool. Here’s a quick blurb about the company from their website:
Utilizing materials that are waste from eco textile factories enables us to create a product that is truly unique and a “Limited Edition” from season to season while assisting our factories in minimizing waste and increasing recycling.
In addition to being environmentally responsible with their salvaged headwear and natural wood sunglasses, Yellow108 also generously donates to charity from each sale they make. Two percent of each purchase goes to Give Canvas, a non profit using salvaged and recycled materials to create canvases for donation to public schools, youth centers, and after school programs.
At Wicked+, we carry the full line of Yellow108 bamboo sunglasses. So, come by our Hermosa Beach location to try a few on, or check them out online at the link below:
