Pala believes sunglasses should stand the test of time, outliving trends and lasting for many seasons to come. A certified B Corp, Pala are on a mission to see the world better - designing long-lasting, bio-acetate eyewear that funds accessible eye care in Africa and empowers female weaving communities in Ghana.
The Pala Story
Founded in 2016, Pala was created to solve a problem. Making eye care accessible and affordable to the poorest communities in Africa, where there are 73% more blind and visually impaired people than the rest of the world. Why eyecare? Glasses happen to be one of the most cost effective ways of reducing poverty and increasing prosperity.
Why they're sustainable
Why they're a Beagle Eco Hero
From start to finish, ethics are considered by the Pala team. Where there is a more environmentally friendly option available, it’s taken, and where they can have a positive impact, they’ll do it.
Pala’s collection of bio-acetate glasses produce 54% less CO2 than traditional acetate frames would. With sustainability and durability at the heart of their design process, Pala frames use a minimum of 64% renewable resources, are handmade in small batches to maintain excellent quality assurance, and their unique woven cases have diverted over 5 tonnes worth of plastic from going to landfill.
Pala design timeless glasses and sunglasses to fit into your life and personal style for years to come.
