The guys over at Shwood make a great pair of shades from a broken skateboard deck. What a great way to recycle and reuse materials! “These sunglasses aren’t for sale, we just wanted to try something new and show people what’s possible,” Shwood’s Taylor Murray wrote in an email to GOOD.
Shwood is a eye-wear company that makes wood sunglasses born out of a philosophy that we can all connect with nature a little bit more, and in more creative ways. Their goal is for us to appreciated the natural beauty of things around us and wear it.
Watch the entire video below, a little skate secsion in downtown LA, then a trip to the work-room to build a cool pair of shades out of a broken deck.
