In a sea of wooden sunglasses, Bird soars above. Lightweight frames, fun styles, and above all a brand that brings light and support to those in need... I couldn’t be more excited to be one of many committed to #shareyoursun

I just wanted to say a very big thank you for your attention to detail in every way. This was one of the nicest experiences of on line purchasing I have experienced. The product is really beautiful.

These sustainable sunglasses are stunning and I love wearing my Birds, even here in the USA they stand out compared to the rest. The lenses on the Wren are just magic!

Everyone who knows me knows how important I think giving back to others is, so it’s no surprise I love these gorgeous wooden sunglasses not only because they’re the coolest, most beautifully crafted sunglasses but because every pair sold brings light to remote communities in Africa!

What more could you want? They look great, lightweight and comfortable, made from sustainable materials. Furthermore a donated solar light through SolarAid. I love them and my friends keep asking where they can get a pair!

Love my Bird's sustainable sunglasses - light to wear, durable, stylish, trend setting in both fashion and philanthropy. An inspiring way to share the sun!

Bird sunglasses are not just wooden masterpieces, they make an uncool, hat wearing beardy singer look way cooler… Oh and they’re also super lightweight, and help me see better on a bright day – it’s a win win and I love them

I really love my new bamboo sunglasses, They look great and are super handy, the handmade eco case is beautiful, and likewise the eco eyewear!
