Sometimes it's so hot, the only accessory you can really rock comfortably is a pair of great sunglasses. (Don't shades always make you feel cooler? Somehow, when my eyes are protected from the sun, it seems less steamy.)


And a good pair of sunglasses is an investment worth making; the quality of the lens will be higher and protect your eyes (always check to see that UVA and UVB rays are blocked) and they will be less likely to break, crack or leave you with a pair that's taped across the bridge of the nose because they've snapped in half. 



And it's great if along with protecting your eyes and staying in one piece for awhile, if they look cool too. Panda sunglasses covers all these bases. And they are made with eco friendly materials (recycled polycarbonate and bamboo) to boot. 
To top it off, this conscious company gives back. "...with each purchase, Panda provides the gift of vision – a free eye exam and eyewear to a person in need through the Tribal Outreach Medical Assistance Foundation (TOMA). 

Just don't sit on them (!) and you'll have just about the most perfect sunglasses ever.
