Better Eyewear
for a Better World™

From building dens to building a movement. For us it’s about reframing what really matters; people and planet. 

We seek out or innovate the best sustainable materials for our frames, including certified woods, bio-based acetate, renewable cork and recycled aluminium. Every pair of Birds gives back through our Share Your Sun partnership with SolarAid.

Our goal is that every pair of Birds leaves you feeling great and helps bring about change.

Founders: Ed & Lawrence

Using sustainable materials

A key aspect of our supply chain is understanding where raw material is sourced and the supply chain that supports it. Our suppliers meet the highest standards of manufacturing, including ISO9001 certifications, FDA and CE compliance, including FSC certifications for wood.

Our frames use Bio-acetate which is better for the environment and biodegradable. Unlike traditional acetate, bio-acetate is made without the use oil-based plasticisers.

Plant based dyes are used in our colouring of woods and acetate, and to top things off, we make our cleaning cloths from recycled plastic bottles.

We’re a B Corp

Certified B Corporations are rigorously verified to meet the highest standards of social and environmental impact, and balance purpose with profit.

Thanks to our innovative approach, we're the highest scoring B Corp in our industry.

Supporting communities in Malawi and Zambia

598 million people in Africa have no access to electricity. Leaving millions to rely on burning things like kerosene for light; they emit toxic black smoke, cost money to run and are extremely hazardous.

For every pair sold we distribute solar light to remote communities in Africa through our Share Your Sun partnership with SolarAid.

Creating a circular economy

Our frames are built to last and we consider their whole life cycle when designing them to minimise wastage.

But we go one better, anyone can take advantage of our recycling programme and send us any old frames for recycling to receive a discount on your next pair of Birds.

Thoughtfully delivered

Our packaging is both recyclable and biodegradable. There's no plastice to be found anywhere. We use FSC certified providers and can track all raw material in our supply-chain.

A global flock

We put people first, and by working closely with our assembly teams and supply chain we can ensure minimum impact on the environment, and maximum support for our global flock. This means we can ensure no forms of modern slavery, no child labour, no forced labour, freedom of association and fair and equal pay.

No brainer carbon goals

We are a certified carbon zero company, offsetting all additional carbon miles and minimising our carbon footprint wherever possible.

Our Bird Forest will see us plant over 10,000 trees in the next two years, creating a bio-diverse woodland, to pull carbon from our atmosphere and of course create new homes for our feathered friends.
