Paper Shades

It's time to stop buying plastic sunglasses, and we’ve got the shades you’ve always wanted. Make the change today.

  • Simple, great looking shades.
  • Designed to match your face shape and your style.
  • Super slim that they can slide into your pocket.
  • UV400 lenses.
  • Starting from only 10 USD.
  • Made from recycled paper.

 

Our goal.

We want to reduce the amount of plastic consumption in a fun way, one pair of shades at a time.

Sunglasses are mainly used outdoors, where and when we need them.

If you broke your last pair, unless recycled, whatever the material they will probably go to landfill.

If you lost your last pair of shades they’ll likely end up in nature and this is where Paper Shades aims to make a positive change.

 

Why paper, not plastic.

Plastic is a dominating global polluter, entering our oceans, our food chain, disrupting wildlife and ecosystems that depend on them.

The recycled paper on the other hand is degradable and will breakdown in months compared to plastic which can take centuries to fully degrade.

 

Low cost.

10 USD.  Our starting launch price couldn’t be more reasonable. Do you remember how much you spent on your last pair of sunglasses? And what happened to them?

Save yourself, your wallet, and the planet some heartbreak.

 

Design.

6 fun, modern classic designs. Clean and simple styles that are easy to match the occasion and the outfit. Oh and they’re adjustable, so will fit a wider variety face sizes whether you may have an Asian, Western, or maybe an alternative face.

Sustainability.

Sunglasses are consumables; they’re normally made from an unidentifiable type of plastic that will get abused and discarded outdoors. They’re normally produced using low quality ultra-cheap plastics with little to no consideration for the environment. And, they’re usually produced by labels that just don’t care, otherwise they would provide you with a realistic alternative that’s less harmful to the environment.

Don’t worry, Paper Shades supports sustainability in 2 key areas:

  1. Production.
    Paper Shades are made from recycled paper. In production, all waste material is collected and sold back to the mills for recycling. The waste is then recycled into new materials to make all kinds of products.
     
  2. Business.
    Paper Shades makes the business of fast fashion more sustainable by:
    1. allowing labels to produce a greater variety of sunglasses at far lower quantities,
    2. the production setup allows labels to be competitive in their reaction to trends,
    3. and gives their consumers sustainable options which they want.

 

Delivery.

We’ve spent the past year proving we can deliver. We’ve spent early mornings and late nights visiting factories, travelled far and wide to ensure we’re sourcing high quality and environmentally conscious materials, and work continuously to improve the design of our shades. We’ve manufactured and delivered 1000’s of sunglasses for music festivals, weddings, and even a Christmas in the Alps.

Now we’re launching our new collection on SparkRaise. Paper Shades will deliver its shades within 30 days of meeting its target funding.

Thanks for taking the time to look at the project and hope to receive your backing soon!

 

Thanks!

James

Founder.
