FELLER SHADES // Every Pair Plants a Tree

Feller Shades and I have been good friends for a while now. I've collaborated with them a few times in the past and was really excited to finally share them fully with all of you in my blog. Not only are these sunnies unique and fashionable they also give back to our beautiful mother earth and that is something I am more than thrilled about. Feller Shades was founded in 2016 by brothers Zac and Mac Kish in Ann Harbor, Michigan. Their idea came from a passion for stylish eyewear, handcrafted goods and a love for the planet.

Each pair is handcrafted by experienced woodworkers and are checked for quality twice before approval for sale. They use only sustainable materials, including responsibly harvested wood from South East Asia, refusing to use any tree species that are endangered or restricted. For the time being the sunglasses are made in a small facility in Nanjing, China. Zac and Mac hope to bring production to the US in the future. In the meantime, they work closely with the factory to ensure not only a premium quality product, but also that the people making the sunglasses are treated fairly too. The cases that comes with the sunglasses are also eco-friendly. They are made from 100% recycled paper, and they also use recycled shipping materials.

What I love most about Fellershades is how they show their true commitment to being eco-friendly by donating a portion of the profits from each pair of sunglasses sold to plant trees in our National Forests!  Not only do I adore their styles, I really LOVE  telling complete strangers the story behind Feller Shades after they've just complimented me on them.  If you can't tell by now, I am Feller Shades fan for life. Every time I put them on I secretly can't help but think of the happy little trees planted on my behalf because of them <3
