From the very beginning, one of Shadeshares’ core principles has been to strive towards a zero carbon footprint. Tree-planting is also a way of providing work and life opportunities for local African people. By purchasing a pair of Shadeshares sunglasses you join us in afforesting Africa.

We cooperate with Kenya Forest and local operators, thus providing jobs. A few of the species we plant include: avocado, eucalyptus, grevillea robusta (southern silky oak), casuarina, croton ja crafted mangoes.
