If you’re picky with your eyewear like I am (not every shape works for every face, you know?) I may have a way to help you snag a pair you’ll love. Woodzee provides eco-friendly eyewear that is also super fashionable so you can look good and help save the planet. I mean, what more could you want from your glasses, right?

You’ll stand out in Woodzee shades for a couple of reasons: One, they’re all made from wood, or, even cooler, from the trimmings of buffalo horns. How totally cool is that? I didn’t even know that was possible! Plus, no buffaloes are harmed in the process of making the glasses. Way better than boring old acetate frames, am I right? And two, they’ve got a wide variety of shapes to choose from, so it's easy to find what works best on you.

The whole eco-friendly buffalo horn thing was blowing my mind a little too much, so I had to try a pair of these out for myself. A feature I particularly enjoy about the Woodzee frames is how the legs kick out to fit to my head, thanks to the stainless steel spring loaded hinges. Even though the ones I scooped up aren't made of wood (bamboo, in my case), they are totally flexible and lightweight, but not in a way that makes them seem easy to break. They have just the right mix of flexibility and durability.
