From eco-friendly hair salons to plastic-free period care; with every environmentally toxic product there seems to be more earth friendly alternatives appearing. And as more sunny days are approaching us (albeit slowly) as we edge closer to summer, throw shade at your old pair of sunnies in favour of one of our favourite sustainable pairs below.

As a purveyor who've managed to make sustainable clothing luxurious, Nanushka's eco-friendly intentions haven't faltered with their latest eyewear. Debuting 12 unisex styles, 68% of the frames are made with bio-based plastic, which is made from natural and renewable materials that will biodegrade in a composting environment and the lenses are also bio-based, 39% of which come from natural and renewable resources. For added sartorial panache, opt for these square-shaped frames with conversation-starting chains.

Take cues from the 90s with these Le Specs frames; part of the Le Sustain initiative, they're as environmentally friendly as they are eye catching. The rose-hued square frames are made with BPA-free polycarbonate – which was created using recycled plastics and cellulose fibres and are sourced from meadow grass – and include dark-tinted lenses for optimum sun protection. Forget rose-tinted glasses, look to a more sustainable future with this pink pair. 

Who says environmentally-friendly products need to cost the earth? These Weekday shades in a classic round shape are made with a 75% recycled PET blend, and cost the same as a six person round at the pub. For just £18, you'll be able to get these sunnies as well as a round in.
