We aim to provide the world with sustainable, environmentally conscious eye-wear, that give back to the planet with every purchase. Simple!
WHAT WE DO
Welcome to Wooden Waves, a Lake District based eco brand dedicated to providing sustainable wooden sunglasses with a mission to make a difference.
We believe that fashion should not cost the Earth (in more ways than one) so we aim to give back more than we take. We hope to fight deforestation and the devastating effects of rising sea temperatures in a battle to restore balance to the natural world.
We are passionate about our products, we are passionate about nature and we are passionate about fighting to protect this beautiful world that we live in.
HOW WE DO IT
We work alongside One Tree Planted who plant trees all around the world, regenerating areas of deforestation and teaching sustainability to the locals.
We also work with Coral Gardeners whose aim is to regenerate and restore the damaged coral reef off the coast of Moorea in French Polynesia. By tending to underwater coral nurseries and replanting the reef piece by piece, they aim to restore colour and life to the ocean floor once more.
10% of every sale helps contribute towards balancing the scales between humans and the environment, to give back what we take and help fight to protect the woods and the waves of our world.
WE'RE PLANET PROTECTORS
“The earth is a fine place and worth fighting for” – Ernest Hemmingway
We like natural. Which is why we've opted to use bamboo, wood and natural or recycled materials wherever we can. Sometimes, it's unavoidable to use plastic - such as the sunglasses lenses - but the good news is even these are recyclable!
Our sunglasses are made from a range of unique hardwood such as Olive, Walnut, Ebony and Maple which are sourced as off-cuts from various furniture makers. You can rest assured knowing that all of the wood going into our sunglasses is sourced from Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) approved forests, meaning that it's harvested in a sustainable way. So not only are we recycling unused pieces of wood, we are also ensuring that we aren’t harming the world’s woodlands by using it.
We ship our sunglasses using as little packaging as possible and what packaging we do use is made from natural or recycled material. Our sunglasses are shipped in a natural bamboo case contained within a recycled cardboard tube and sealed with recycled packaging tape. Safe, Strong & Sustainable.
