Posted on the 17 June 2011 by Alison_wood @midnight_eden

Eco-friendly features and elements are making their way into everyday products making it easier to find green options for every need. It seems that more companies are aware of their social responsibility to the earth and to its inhabitants. Today, one may even purchase eyeglasses that are not only very fashionable, but also safe for the environment. There are a few notable green product lines that truly take their responsibilities to the environment and to fashion seriously and stick out above the rest.


Iwood is an optical line that specializes in glasses made from reclaimed woods. They are fashionable with a vintage twist and a strong commitment to recycling and creating low emissions. The line has many features that make it a great environmentally friendly choice.

• Iwood is made from reclaimed woods that were used for the insides of luxury jets. The wood is collected within sustainable methods and certified by the Forest Stewardship Council.
• The protective elements and the glue used to make the glasses emit no VOCs and are formaldehyde free.
• Locally made within the USA. Each pair is hand crafted in the Midwest.
