Bamboo glasses are most commonly made from a species of giant bamboo. Not only is this very strong, but excellent for the environment. It’s an extremely fast growing plant and its carbon dioxide absorption far exceeds that of wood. These plants are grown in specific areas, therefore no risk of cutting down the rainforest! When the bamboo is harvested, the area is replanted with bamboo, to allow the plant to grow again.
After bamboo is harvested, it’s transported to a factory where it’s cleaned and treated. Then, using a precision cutting machine, the bamboo is formed into glasses. A kilo of bamboo can produce up to six pairs of sunglasses. The sunglasses are then sanded, polished and assembled into wearable sunglasses. A final step of varnishing the frames to ensure they are water and heat resistant; then they are fully functional.
