What Makes Our Sunnies The Strongest?


Cellulose acetate offers superior strength and durability due to its molecular structure, featuring long chains of cellulose molecules chemically modified with acetate groups.

Scientific studies have demonstrated its exceptional impact resistance, attributed to its ability to absorb energy and distribute stress effectively, making it less prone to fractures or cracks even under significant pressure.
Moreover, its flexibility allows for bending without snapping, enhancing its durability and longevity.

To match this, our sunglasses are all fitted with super heavy duty hinges, ensuring there are no weak points. 

As soon as you hold a pair of Shade sunnies in your hand, you will notice the insane amount of quality we have packed into our sustainable eyewear, and you will never look back.

A message from the founder - Sam 

IMG_1962
My passion for sustainability and my desire to make a meaningful impact on the world led me to create Shade Eyewear.
As someone who cherishes our planet and all its wonders, I couldn’t stand by while plastic pollution threatened our oceans and wildlife.


With Shade Eyewear, I envision more than just a brand; I envision a movement.


A movement where individuals like you and me come together to make conscious choices that benefit not only ourselves but also the planet we call home.
By utilizing cutting-edge technology to create sunglasses that have been engineered to outperform regular plastic sunglasses, I want to offer premium sunnies that are durable and comfortable while promoting environmental responsibility.


But my journey with Shade Eyewear goes beyond just creating sustainable sunglasses.

It’s about showing the world that small changes in our everyday choices can lead to significant positive impacts on the environment.


Together, we have the power to create a brighter, cleaner future, and give back to the planet that gives us everything. 

Thank you for joining me on this empowering journey with Shade Eyewear

Frequently Asked Questions

HOW LONG WILL THEY LAST?
Our frames are made from a plant based material known as Cellulose Acetate. It is stronger, flexible, and more durable than regular plastic frames, and causes less harm to the environment, which is why we love them! They are more resistant to pressure placed upon the frames and can bend further before breaking. If properly looked after, our sunglasses can easily last 3-5 years or more!
HOW MUCH DO THEY PROTECT MY EYES?
All of our lenses offer UV400 A/B protection. 'UV400' refers to UV rays at the top end of the UV spectrum, up to the 400-nanometre wavelength. Our lenses block 100% of these UV rays, which provides you with the most possible protection you can get. 
ARE THEY GOOD FOR DRIVING?
All our sunglasses have Category 3 lenses which are best for daytime driving conditions — any higher is considered too dark to drive safely. They are also polarised which reduces the glare!
HOW LONG DOES DELIVERY TAKE?
Our sunglasses are stocked here in Queensland, Australia. Every order will be posted within 48 hours of you placing the order, and all orders placed on a weekend will be posted on Mondays.
Orders within Australia will generally arrive within 7 days, and overseas orders may take between 7-14 days to arrive. This is just a guideline and certain circumstances may effect these times. 
HOW MUCH IS SHIPPING?
We run a flat rate shipping cost for all orders.
Standard shipping is just $5.95 and express is just $9.95
WHAT IF THEY DON'T SUIT ME?
This is why we offer our Free Home Try-On service! If you are worried about how your sunnies will look or fit you, or even if you would like to see the quality first hand before paying for them, then this feature is for you!
DO THEY HAVE WARRANTY?
Our sunglasses are backed by a 90 day quality guarantee. If you break them, we replace them! Check out our warranty section to view the terms and conditions.
DO YOU OFFER BUY NOW PAY LATER?
We sure do! Currently we offer AfterPay so you can wear your new sunnies straight away and pay them off with four small repayments.
