Why Buy Bamboo Sunglasses, Watches, Apparel, or Anything for That Matter?
For gifts, for personal use, to add a unique aesthetic to your look - the list of all different reasons why you should buy bamboo products can be long, but there are more to say about its positive impact on the environment that will also make you look nice. Though bamboo sunglasses and watches do make great gifts, when you are gift giving you may want to be able to tell the receiver some of the benefits of the product you chose.
Think of your hipster friend or the environmental advocate who spends their time picking up recycling and participating in cleanups. What better way to surprise someone who is passionate about being eco-friendly than with a pair of bamboo shades? They aren’t made by a mass-marketed brand, who is merely a part of the larger Luxxotica conglomerate, and they aren’t made of plastic. Not to mention, they float, so it will never get lost in deeper waters, where the only thing to find should be its natural marine life.
In addition to bamboo sunglasses and watches, there are many other products that can be made of this naturally growing grass. Swell, for example, has bamboo-based apparel and accessories. Our clothing is made from a combination of bamboo fiber, organic cotton, and hemp - which follows our vision of a completely sustainable lifestyle brand.
Environmental awareness is one of the driving factors of our material choices, but we don’t lose the forest through the trees. The Swell Vision product lines are carefully curated. Our boxers and t-shirts are made of bamboo fiber because of the casual nature of the attire combined with comfortability. We also use hemp and organic cotton for the button-down shirts, to make them durable, breathable, and a bit more formal than a t-shirt. You can wear it on the beach, to brunch, ar at the bar.
As far as accessories go, you won’t find anything quite like our eco-friendly watches, bracelets, and shades. Swell’s watches are truly unique, they don’t weigh you down, and the time machine that gets it ticking is the exact same as you will find in many high dollar timepieces. Rest assured any detail that looks to be plastic is made of a plant-based acetate, and we have toured manufacturing facilities to ensure working conditions are aligned with our guiding principles.
