What’s important to us?

Our premium frames use materials including certified woods, bio-based acetate and repurposed aerospace aluminium. Founded by three brothers from Devon, UK, our aim is to drive change in the eyewear industry by designing beautiful frames that both look good and do good.

Bird’s unique designs are beautiful in their own right, and combined with their Share Your Sun commitment they become a compelling symbol of the power of solar energy to make a difference. In 2019, Bird won Frame of the Year with their Blackcap frame, beating huge international competition, and they’ve been nominated for Frame of the Year again in 2020.

With each pair of Bird sunglasses purchased, a family in Africa benefits from a solar lamp. These solar lamps replace the standard kerosene lamps that are in most households. By eliminating dirty kerosene lamps, families benefit from better health, leading to better mental wellbeing, fewer hours of work and school missed and enabling people to be more productive, as well as saving CO2.

That’s the power of #shareyoursun



In April 2020 we became the first UK eyewear company to become a certified B Corp. For us this is about making a public statement that we are a force for good.

Certified B Corporations are a new kind of business that balances purpose and profit, and are committed to prioritising the environment and society in the way they do business. They are third party verified and legally required to consider the impact of their decisions on their workers, customers, suppliers, community, and the environment. This is a global movement of people using business as a force for good.

Bird sunglasses meets the highest standards of social and environmental impact

“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”
