    Sustainability

    • Pala gives to vision projects across Africa for every pair sold
    • Plant-based frame draws on more renewable resources
    • Microfiber bag made from 70% recycled PET bottles
    • More eco-friendly lenses (39% plant resin)
    • Recycled case from waste plastic and water sachets
    • Packaging FSC approved or recycled and is recyclable
    • Small batch production to minimise waste

    Pala believes in a better future for planet and people. Durable, ethical and sustainable sunglasses. Plastic-free & recycled frame options. Polarised lenses.  As each season passes, Pala continues to innovate now offering both recycled acetate and bio-based designs housed in eco-friendly recyclable packaging and with carbon offset shipping.  All products are produced in a factory that undergoes a regular third-party ethical trade audit (SMETA).

    Pala works closely with international charity Vision Aid Overseas to give back to eye-care programmes in Africa.  For every pair of sunglasses sold, Pala provides grants to vision centres, dispensaries and screening programmes. To date, thousands of sight-impaired people have had their lives changed and their ability to earn an income enhanced thanks to receiving a pair of prescription glasses.

     

    Pala also works alongside a Ghanaian-based NGO to support weaving communities to make their protective sunglasses cases. Woven using traditional methods utilising otherwise wasted plastic, Pala provides a trade and an income to help them empower themselves whilst upholding tradition (and recycling as we go!).

    To create the unique cases, they partner with Care4basket a non-governmental organisation (NGO) running an initiative in Bolgatanga, Upper East Ghana. Working with artisans and weavers from deprived communities, they make traditional woven baskets – and now the cases for our sunglasses.
