Bosky Optics sees wood as not merely a sustainable material for sunglasses, but also a medium for spreading a message. The company has teamed up with 13 artists from 5 different continents and engraved their designs on their new line of sustainable eyewear. Available in 3 different styles, these sunglasses are decorated with the buyer’s choice of engravings, and each artist receives a royalty payment for every pair that sells with their design. In addition to payment, they also have a chance to have their artwork promoted in an entirely new way: in motion, on eco-friendly items that are worn proudly, with purpose.

You can help support one of these 13 artists by backing this project’s Kickstarter campaign, and you’ll also score some pretty fabulous shades in the process.
