Dragon Alliance Sunglasses

The E.C.O. (Environmentally Conscious Optics) sunglasses from Dragon are touted to be the world’s first shades made with a frame that’s of a 100-percent renewable origin. According to the company, the frames are manufactured with a secret “plant-based material.” But they flex and fit like normal sunglasses, and they have polycarbonate lenses with 100-percent UV protection.

The sunglasses fit large for full eye coverage and a stand-out look. Dragon E.C.O. Matte Black Gray Sunglasses cost $100. www.dragonalliance.com
