We created Nomad to be different from other sunglass brands!

Hi, we’re Idana and Tom, the founders of Nomad Eyewear. We’re happily disrupting the status quo because we don’t believe sunglasses should cost the earth or damage the planet anymore than it already is! Our affordable recycled ocean plastic sunglasses are collected from oceans and redesigned for style. Our sunnies are colourful, lightweight, durable, and super sustainable.

Why do we use recycled plastic? Maybe because our hearts sank while holidaying in Cape Verde. The once pristine powder-white beaches - and home to the largest species of loggerhead turtles - were ruined with crazy amounts of plastic waste. Maybe we’re doing it for our children and believe that even little steps make a difference to their future and the planet we're leaving them.

Or maybe it’s because I broke my Oakley’s on that same trip to Cape Verde and wasn’t prepared to pay £180 for a new pair! Idana and I began researching how to reduce plastic ocean waste and make affordable, quality sunglasses. Two years later, we founded Nomad Eyewear.

Our sunglasses are made from 100% recycled plastic - discarded fishing nets and water bottles collected from the ocean and their beaches. The plastic is cleaned and broken down. The fibres are turned into pellets, which are heated and moulded into high-quality sunglasses frames. Our frames are produced entirely from recycled ocean waste.

Like us, we know you are tired of paying a small fortune for dull black sunglasses. Now you have an awesome selection of colourful high-quality options. Sunnies that make you look good and feel even better. Cool glasses, cleaner ocean!

For every pair of glasses purchased, we plant two trees, print your invoice on recycled paper, and ship your cool shades in a compostable recycled package. We’ve even pissed off our suppliers by demanding our shades arrive in rPET cloth bags (opposed to single-use plastic bags like 99.9% of other sunglass brands). What’s not to love?!

When we're not making these dope (af) sunnies, you will find us on our paddleboards, camping with our kids, taking impromptu beach days, drinking beer around the BBQ with friends and exploring the great outdoors.

We hope you love our sunglasses as much as we do. If you have any questions, please get in touch. We love talking about our shades! x

The fibres are turned into pellets, which are heated and moulded into high-quality sunglasses frames. Our frames are produced entirely from recycled ocean waste.

Essentially, significant amounts of ocean plastic waste are collected and transformed into durable, functional sunglasses for sun, water, snow, and everyday living. Our glasses are colourful, stylish, and fun - polarised, lightweight, and durable.
