Blue Planet Eyewear

Glasses and Sunglasses with a Difference

Blue Planet Eyewear is an eyewear brand with a difference. We are a mission-driven and ecologically friendly company producing classic and eclectic glasses and sunglasses professionally crafted and designed to protect eyes, improve eyesight and add style while also working towards protecting and improving the wellbeing of our planet and its people.

The Blue Planet Eyewear brand evolved from the family-owned Blue Gem Sunglasses label – a thriving leader in the wholesale eyewear industry founded over 35 years ago. At Blue Planet Eyewear we offer a diverse and colorful collection of original sunglasses and eyeglasses online and via our retail partners.

Our distinctive range of reading eyeglasses and sunglasses take their inspiration from Santa Barbara’s iconic surf culture. But that’s not the only thing that makes our range of glasses and reading sunglasses unique. Here at Blue Planet Eyewear we are passionate about doing our bit for the planet, and that’s why every pair of sunglasses and eyeglasses online in our store is carefully designed and built with recycled plastics and reclaimed metals as well as all-natural materials such as wood and bamboo.

Setting pace and trend with durable sunglasses and reading eyeglasses that are affordable, sustainable and fun, Blue Planet Eyewear is a brand for individuals who are committed to making socially responsible purchases that feel good, look good, and are good for our planet.

As part of our company’s commitment to giving something back, Blue Planet Eyewear partners with global humanitarian organizations including SEE International, Direct Relief, Feed the Children and the Best Day Foundation through our Visualize Change program. Through these organizations, we commit to donating one pair of glasses for every pair that we sell, helping to bring the gift of vision to children and adults within the United States and worldwide.

Since we launched our Visualize Change program, Blue Planet Eyewear has donated over half a million pairs of glasses to needy recipients, helping to change lives around the world. Simply through selling our reading sunglasses and eyeglasses online, we hope to lead the way as part of a new generation of companies with a conscience, emphasizing both care of the Earth and care for each other.
