Choosing the right (sustainable) sunglasses for kids to protect their eyes
Protecting our kids from the sun when out and about is on the mind of every parent. Naturally we put sunscreen on them, make sure they wear suitable clothes and a hat. But what about having them wear sunglasses to protect their eyes?
Heading out into nature or the beach on a sunny day, we use sunscreen, even if we are just out and about for a bit with our children. But what about protecting our children’s eyes too? Children’s and teenager eyes are still developing and are thus more sensitive to sunlight then adult eyes. Kids also spend almost 3 times more time outdoors and in direct sunlight than adults.
What to look out for when choosing your kids’ sunglasses
Choosing the right sunglasses can be confusing and overwhelming, even more so if you are looking for a pair of sustainable sunglasses for kids that protect your children’s eyes. We thus recommend to look out for the following features when choosing sunglasses:
- UV400 protection, meaning that they offer almost 100% protection against harmful ultraviolet light rays, including UVA and UVB rays.
- Polarized lenses. Our recommendation would be to choose tac polarized lenses for better vision and sun reflection.
- Light and eco-friendly materials, such as TPEE with no harmful chemicals such as BPA.

With their unisex styles and durable sustainable materials, they can easily be shared among siblings and passed down to friends and family.
