Seaval’s sustainable bamboo sunglasses

Seaval, the sustainable surfwear brand, have just launched these stylish all-new bamboo sunglasses. They are the ultimate in ethical fashion and come in two ergonomic designs.

How the sunglasses are made

The bamboo is sourced from sustainable forests and bamboo scrap that would otherwise go to waste. In the manufacturing process, lots of long thin strands of bamboo are compressed into thin plates. These plates are compiled and shaped into the sunglasses, so there is very little room for waste, and no need for heavy energy-inefficient machinery to cut pieces out of thick blocks. The bamboo plates are coated with organic substances and they end up waterproof (and they float!) so perfect for swimming or surfing.

How you can own a pair of these stylish bamboo sunglasses

You can get your hands on a pair of these bamboo sunglasses and support some great marine wildlife projects at the same time…

Seaval are passionate about stopping the invasion of lionfish that are threatening the reef and local fish species in the Caribbean. They also need your help to protect dolphins from slaughter in Japan. So they will donate $5 to these causes for every pair of sunglasses sold.

Be my Green Valentine

What says “I love you” more than a gift that loves our planet too! This Valentine’s Day, instead of a paper card that will end up in the recycling bin (hopefully), why not carve your own in solid wood. This wooden postcard comes from a sustainable source and is blank for you to hand carve your own message of love. It’s soft and lightweight so easy to scratch your design (with keys or similar) and easy to post.

And why send a bunch of flowers when you can send a garden of flowers to last a lifetime. The ‘Love in a GroBox’ contains beautiful red flowers that have been carefully chosen for long colourful flowering displays. Comes complete with a special message so you can personalise your gift.

For the ultimate Green Valentine’s Day, have a look at our ‘Eco-Valentine: DIY projects for lovers’ post.

Join the #BagBrigade to make Black Friday Greener…

I just joined the #BagBrigade at The Green Life Online and pledged to use reusable bags instead of plastic bags.

Tomorrow, millions of Americans will take to the shops and just think of all the plastic bags that don’t have to be used. Plastic bags have never been so un-fashionable. And for good reason! There are so many stylish options available for reusable bags these days. Here’s a round-up of three fabulous reusable bags…
Maggie Bags Recycled Seatbelt Campus Tote Bag in Fall Leaves

Maggie Bags

We love these Maggie Bags made from Recycled Seatbelts. They come in a range of single colours, or multi-colours like the Autumn Leaves bag pictured here. These bags are made to last with four nickel plated feet on the bottom and internal zip pockets for your purse, keys or cell phone.

 

Rebagz Tote Bags

These Rebagz Cinchy Tote Bags are made from recycled rice sacks. The one pictured here is called Honeybee, and there are other fresh and funky styles available. These Cinchy Tote Bags are not only eco-friendly and stylish but they are human-friendly too because they are made under fair labour conditions. Makes a great shopping bag, handbag or even a briefcase!

Flip & Tumble

Finally, the Flip & Tumble Reusable Shopping Bag. Gorgeously designed in loads of colour choices. Reusable shopping bags that folds up into a tiny pouch when not in use, it’s so easy to take it along when you go shopping. This bag can hold 25 pounds and has a comfy fit felt shoulder pad.
