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!
This design is named after the Sisonke School in Port St John’s which the organisation supports. It's bamboo frame has been treated to give it a “stonewashed” look, giving it a very distinctive and casual look.
Every pair handmade by real people- no machines
Fully UV blocking
Also available with Revo Lenses
At the end of life simply pop the lenses out and they can be turned in to prescription lenses or pop them straight in to your compost to biodegrade!
As every pair are hand crafted, they may come with minor irregularities and imperfections -We find these add to their charm as no two pairs of Bambooka are never 100% the same!
