Sunglasses protect our eyes from UV rays and reduce the risk of cataracts. They also protect the tender skin around our eyes from sun exposure. In 2012, approximately 95 million sunglasses were sold in the United States. If these were all made of plastic, then that would mean near 800 million pounds of plastic would be thrown away once the sunglasses are done being worn. These plastic sunglasses are not biodegradable and would just accumulate as plastic waste for near 500+ years. That’s just one year’s worth of sunglasses purchased. Now, imagine if all sunglasses were made of biodegradable and renewable materials? Bamboo, recycled, and FSC wood, anyone?
