PANDA // Giving the gift of Sight & Education

Panda eye wear and watches are made for men and women!
It all began with a simple idea to make Eco-friendly eye wear in an ethical and sustainable way. In 2012, 275 people pledged over $19,000 on Kickstarter to help bring Panda's bamboo sunglasses to life. The founders, with a small goal of $3,000, hoped to launch a new kind of eye wear brand that used sustainable materials and thoughtful manufacturing processes. The cornerstone of their founding philosophy was "Fashion with a purpose" and remains the same to this day.

Panda's Bamboo and Cork Watch features a premium minimalist design fused with sustainable elements, next to it a pair of Natural Bamboo sunglasses from Panda
Not only is Panda mindful of our planet but also of the basic needs of its people. Every purchase of a pair of Panda Sunglasses gives the gift of vision. They proudly partner with Optometry Giving Sight, a non-profit organization that brings eye exams, prescription glasses, and medical training to under served communities. They have projects in 37 different countries (including the U.S.) and provide eye care services to over 7.6 million people, training over 14,000 professionals and supporting 133 vision centers. These programs change lives for the better today and are setting the foundations for a brighter tomorrow.

Children helped by the Pencils of Promise Projects
In addition to their original, bamboo sunglasses, Panda expanded their products with a collection of Portuguese Cork and Mosu Bamboo wrist watches, made for men and women. They are Eco-friendly, vegan, and made from 100% sustainable materials. For every timepiece sold, Panda gives the gift of education by making a donation to Pencils of Promise on your behalf. At Panda they believe the pursuit of knowledge is a human right and access to an education is an essential foundation for thriving communities. Pencils of Promise has built over 400 schools in Ghana, trained over 700 teachers and educated almost 75,000 children to date.


All Panda products come with their "Happiness Guarantee" that includes free shipping, a lifetime warranty and a 60-day no questions asked return or exchange policy. From Panda's focus on Eco-friendly bamboo accessories to their support of educational and quality of life initiatives around the world they are committed to sustainable solutions in every way.
