Here comes the sun (protection)

Just because summer is long gone, it doesn’t mean you’ve put your sunglasses away.

That’s why we were happy to hear about a new option, and it’s one with quite a story behind its fashionable look.

Woodzee, which creates sustainably sourced and repurposed men’s and women’s sunglasses, prescription eyewear and home goods, has introduced a limited-edition collaboration with Maker’s Mark, the small-batch bourbon whisky company.

The line of wood sunglasses – the first Woodzee collection made in America – uses recycled bourbon barrels.

Production is being completed in California, near where Woodzee designs, manufacturers and ships the finished products, something the company states allows it to “ensure high standards, fair wages and exceptional manufacturing.”

The Woodzee Maker’s Mark sunglasses sell for $150, with a portion of the proceeds being given back to a variety of nonprofit organizations.
