The Wear Panda Origin
Wear Panda is a premium sustainable fashion brand, offering a contemporary aesthetic to a new generation of globally-conscious consumers. We aspire to synthesize modern fashion designs with intentional sourcing and thoughtful manufacturing practices. The concept of “fashion with a purpose” was a cornerstone of our founding philosophy, and it remains central to the work we do today.
Founded in 2012, Wear Panda envisaged a high quality sustainable eyewear brand that would benefit the planet that we inhabit as well as the less fortunate people that live in it. Out of that vision came our stylish sunglasses. Panda sunnies are handcrafted from sustainably sourced bamboo that leave a minimal environmental footprint and help to preserve our planet for future generations.
Our eyewear and watches are not only environmentally friendly; In our quest to play our small part in making the world a better place, we have teamed up with Optometry Giving Sight. This partnership means that for every pair of Panda sunglasses we sell, one individual in need receives a medical eye examination as well as a pair of prescription glasses for free. https://www.wearpanda.co.uk/gift-of-vision-sunglasses
Furthermore, the Gift of Education is provided through our collaboration with Pencils of Promise. With every watch purchased, we make a small donation to this organisation, providing educational opportunities to children in need in small villages all over the world. https://www.wearpanda.co.uk/gift-of-education-watches
As the original bamboo sunglasses company we pride ourselves on being innovative. When you Wear Panda you’re creating a positive social and environmental change. You’re giving your stamp of approval for fashion with a purpose. Your continued support is really appreciated as we try to spread awareness on important issues that affect us all.
SUSTAINABLE AND ECO-FRIENDLY
Bamboo is an easy-to-grow, renewable resource that has countless uses including clothes, food, fuel and even construction. This extremely versatile material can grow well without the need to use fertilisers or pesticides, which means that the potential risk of chemicals entering groundwater are significantly minimised.
To add to its sustainable qualities, bamboo is also extremely durable; and by using a unique layered and proprietary design process, we can bring to life high quality natural bamboo products that have a minimal impact on the eco system and also last.
We are proud members of the Ethical Fashion Fellowship 500 club!
