Bacardi X RAW Eyewear

Last year Bermuda-based drinks group Bacardi released a collection of sunglasses made from recycled rum barrels as part of its Good Spirited sustainability drive.

Created in collaboration with Puerto Rican brand RAW Eyewear, the sunglasses featured Italian polarised lenses and the Bacardi bat logo at the temple.

The producer assembled, sanded, and finished the wood – which is usually chipped up for mulch or reused for decorative purposes – to produce the wooden-framed, flat front sunglasses.
