Share Your Sun - by Bird Sunglasses

Help launch the Bird Sunglasses brand & Share Your Sun movement. Pre-order our handmade sunglasses, and transform lives in the process.

We did it!

On 31st Mar 2017 we successfully raised £10,090 of £8,000 target with 133 supporters in 28 days

New stretch target

Wow thank you so much to everyone that helped us SMASH our target! So we've decided to streeeetch our wings and aim for £10,000. Don't worry, all the rewards pledged so far are guaranteed, any extra is a bonus.

All the funds raised are a massive help to us as a new start-up, but also a chance for our supporters to get 25% off during the campaign, with all models ready to ship at the end of the campaign (while stocks last).

Please spread the word - there's only a few days left for people to get their hands on these rewards!

About us

Bird is a new sunglasses brand with a difference. We make pioneering, stylish sunglasses using high quality, sustainable materials and for every pair sold, we distribute a solar light to families in Malawi, Zambia and Uganda through our Share Your Sun partnership with SolarAid.

We are a small team committed to creating beautiful, thoughtful products that look great and do good. It's business on purpose.

“To start with, I designed these sunglasses for me, as I couldn’t find anything out there that ticked all the boxes. We spend a lot of time out and about, whether in other countries or closer to home, and I wanted sunglasses that look great and feel good while we’re exploring. But more than that – I was looking for a way to combine business, design and social good.  Looking good is one thing – but doing good is so much more important. Share Your Sun is a way to connect with the bigger picture and contribute to a more sustainable world.”     [Ed Bird – Founder]

As we start our journey, we’d love you to join our flock.

Our sustainable business model focuses on doing more with less. We have put the utmost care into the manufacturing process, from designing our signature feather etching to building ongoing relationships with manufacturers and partners we trust.

Polarised lenses reduce glare, enhance colours and sharpen vision. 100% UVA and UVB protection (UV400) comes as standard. Each pair comes with a Share Your Sun microsuede cloth, leather strap and either soft cork or beautiful handmade leather case.

  • Featherlight range. Made from the finest hand-finished bamboo – one of the world’s most sustainable and versatile woods. These glasses are ultra lightweight and soft to the touch, with modern styling and expert detailing. They’re even compostable.
  • Multiply range. Who knew ply could be so beautiful. Traditional wood laminating methods create a distinctive colour contrast and greater overall strength while still being lightweight. Multiply your style.
  • Strata range.  Using cutting edge technology for a stunning wood and aluminium fusion, the Strata range has sleek lines and a luxury feel. Each pair is carefully finished with acetate temple ends and polarised  lenses. We believe these models are so unique you’ll be hard pushed to find anything so intricate and beautiful elsewhere.

  •  21 day satisfaction guarantee

We hope you'll like our products as much as we do, but if for any reason you don't, you can return or exchange them within 21 days of delivery.

  • 1 year manufacturer warranty

We take pride in delivering the best craftsmanship, so if you find a defect within the first year we'll sort it out - we'll recycle the defective model and give you a new pair.

As we start our journey, we’d love you to join our flock.
