Having a love of stylish sunnies, a passion for business and a determination to leave the world in a better way than how it was found, brand owner Daniella merged all three and that's how Bamboo Gorilla was born. All sunnies are a cross of eco friendly consciousness and affordable style. The entire range is hand crafted, lightweight, with UV 400 protection and polarised lenses.
There is an abundance of cheap plastic eyewear out there and Bamboo Gorilla aims to move away from this. More importantly, they are a step in the right direction in that they aim to minimise the impact of the ever growing issue of plastic (and thus microplastics) in our ocean. All frames are made from either bamboo or wood so plastic is not used and what's more you can rest assured that the materials used are FSC certified.
Bamboo Gorilla's eco friendly mindfulness even extends out to the very compact cases which are made from highly renewable cork.
It's not always possible to eliminate completely, but minimising is always a possibility.
