From the WearPanda website:
Bamboo is one of the fastest growing plants on the planet. It uses less water than traditional woods, and puts more oxygen back into the air! Plus it doesn’t require chemical fertilizers, making it safer for the earth and farmers.
Bamboo is naturally lightweight, strong, and antibacterial, ideal for something that rests on your face all day.
Not only is bamboo naturally lightweight, it’s also stronger than steel!
Bamboo can’t quite do it all though and with the introduction of our watch collection, additional sustainable materials were needed. So we used bamboo where we could and balanced the natural beauty of its wood grain with sustainable Portuguese cork as well as recycled metals.

The Panda Promise: “We promise that all WearPanda’s bamboo sunglasses and watches will be constructed from sustainable materials that are kind to the environment, and we will never sell something without giving back to those in need.”
Fashion with a purpose:
This is the cornerstone of their founding philosophy and it remains central to the work they do today. They are determined to be a force for good, both for people, and the planet.
For each and every product they sell, a portion of the sale is donated to charities to help those in need.
Their global charitable network includes:
- 1% for the Planet (from Wikipedia: One Percent for the Planet is an international organization whose members contribute at least one percent of their annual sales to environmental causes).
- Optometry Giving Sight: they helped them screen nearly 4 million people, deliver more than 27,000 pairs of glasses, support 16 optical labs, and 116 optometry students in 39 countries.
- They’ve supported 12 microloans in 10 countries through Kiva.
- Helped Pencils of Promise change the lives of nearly 100,000 students.
- They’re helping the Washington’s National Park Fund to protect and nurture some of the most beautiful forests in the Pacific NorthWest.
- They offer all of their customers the opportunity to help offset the environmental costs of shipping through their partnership with One Tree Planted.
- WearPanda states on their website:
Your choice of sustainable materials over single-use plastics has an impact on our worldwide marketplace. By increasing the demand for materials that are kind to our planet you send a clear message to brands that the era of fast fashion is done. Green is the new black.
Giving back means we all go forward!
Their bamboo sunglasses are available in many different versions. They are eco-friendly, come in a microfiber pouch with a free reusable hard bamboo case, and are shipped in recycled cardboard packaging. Don’t they look fantastic!
The Original bamboo sunglasses are lightweight and comfortable. At only .8oz (22g) they’ll float in water! The Ultralights use an advanced manufacturing process to be 25% lighter! They may not float, but you may also forget you’re wearing them.
The lenses are made from recycled polycarbonates and are polarized at filter level 3 (a very dark tint). This is suitable for bright sun, as well as reflected light from snow or water. Select Panda styles are prescription ready and can be purchased by themselves or with prescription lenses.
Their watches are crafted from sustainable bamboo, eco-friendly Portuguese cork, vegan leathers, and recycled materials. All watches are shipped in recycled cardboard and brown paper, protected by a beautiful bamboo box. An eco-friendly timepiece collection: each watch is hand-built with sustainable components.
Their T’s, hoodies, and sweaters are all printed on demand in France to minimize waste. They’re made from organic cotton and all designs are exclusive to WearPanda.
