A new front-runner in sustainable eyewear has emerged, promising high-quality sunglasses created with sustainable yet durable materials. Walden Eyewear brings stylish designs, comfortable frames, and high-performing materials to sunglasses. Using plant-based or recycled materials, Walden Eyewear, featured on Huckberry’s website, is proud to use clean designs that won’t interfere with the adventure awaiting. Inspired by historical trends in sunglass style, the brand introduces the Woods and River models to hikers and adventurers worldwide.
The Woods sunglasses introduces a modern take on classic 1950s-era sunglasses. Timeless yet stylish, these glasses look just as good in a casual t-shirt as in a suit. Built to last, the Woods frame features double diamond rivet detailing around the temples and durable five-barrel riveted hinges. Sustainable in every way possible, the Woods glasses feature recycled steel and lenses made of plant-based materials. These sunglasses come with a protective sleeve and a microfiber cleaning cloth.
The second new style from Walden Eyewear is called the River. Favoring simplicity over complexity, these sunglasses have a square shape with rounded corners. The keyhole nose bridge plays into the vintage design notes on this modern pair of sunglasses. The tapered temple shape helps give a snug fit, while the robust five-barrel hinges ensure durability. Like the Woods glasses, the River sunglasses also feature recycled steel and plant-based lens materials. A “green nylon” is used to create the lens material. This new technology features 61% fossil carbon and 39% plant-based castor oil to create a beautiful, durable, and sustainable material. Both the Woods and River sunglasses are available in several colors. The sunglasses are priced at $99 per pair regardless of style.
