Blue Planet Eyewear Releases New Eco-Fashion Styles for Spring & Summer

Leading Eco-Fashion Eyewear Brand to Make a Splash This Season with New Styles

CARPINTERIA, Calif., March 26, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Blue Planet Eyewear, a mission-driven, eco-fashion brand of classic and eclectic eyewear thoughtfully crafted and designed to make a positive impact on the Earth, is proud to announce the release of its newest fashion-forward sunglass styles. The eco-friendly company has released eight new styles, perfect for making a splash this Spring Break or for making a bold statement during festival season. The new styles will include their signature bamboo and wood temples with newly added natural materials such as rose woods, zebra woods, as well as reflective color and gradient color lenses that are highly anticipated for spring and summer fashion.

“Our latest styles were influenced by vintage nostalgia and cutting-edge trend projections to create a frame and a lens for everyone,” said Lisa Lawenda, CEO of Blue Planet Eyewear. “Sunglasses and readers have undoubtedly become more of a fashion statement for the style conscious, but they are undeniably a necessity when it comes to seeing more clearly and protecting eyes from the sun, as well as the elements.”


  • Heathe: Kick it back to the ‘90s with these metal frames and colored lenses.
  • Mila: With a creative metal frame shape and fantastically bright lenses – serious style impressions will be made.
  • Rosa: The perfect recreation of old Hollywood glam.
  • Romi: Edgy, plastic frames with the perfect metal accents in four color choices.
  • Marshall: Traditional with a twist. This plastic aviator was revamped with unique bamboo temples.
  • Rye: Tap into timeless beauty with a vintage frame accompanied by bamboo temples.
  • Amador Oceana: The perfect aviator with vibrant lens colors and Beechwood temples.
  • Delamar: Showcase originality with a unique, single-lens design paired with Beechwood temples.

Not only has Blue Planet Eyewear created a lively line-up of new styles – they did it with great attention to eco-friendly practices. Festival-frequenters and eco-conscious consumers can rest easy knowing that with their purchase they’ll not only look great but they’ll be giving back through mission-centric practices.

Blue Planet Eyewear believes every person is entitled to the gift of sight, yet it's estimated that 285 million people—19 million children—are visually impaired worldwide. To date, Blue Planet Eyewear has donated over 500,000 pairs of glasses through its Visualize Change program, which donates one pair of corrective eyewear for every pair sold to national and international charities, like SEE International, Feed the Children, Direct Relief, and Best Day Foundation. These partnerships supply glasses and aid to those struggling with vision impairment around the world.
