Sustainable Wood Sunglasses?

Wooden sunglasses. Interesting. I found these on The Greenloop. Not sure what I think about them. They are made by iWood from sustainably harvested wood. Both my girls loved them.  Bay said, “Do we get to try those?” and was very disappointed that we do not.

    I understand what you are saying. I think that they are cute, but I’m so hard on my sunglasses. I’d be really mad if I accidently sat on one of these pairs, which is what usually happens. Oops.
