In a world where trends come and go, there’s something timeless about a classic pair of sunglasses. They’re not just an accessory; they’re a statement. At Good Citizens, we believe in embracing the enduring appeal of iconic sunglass styles—round, aviator, and wayfarer—while championing sustainability like never before.


Revitalising classics with sustainability in mind

Imagine sunglasses that not only look good but also do good for the planet. Good Citizens has reinvented these timeless designs to be repairable and customisable, ensuring they stay on your face and out of landfill. Billions of people on the planet wear frames and about 99.9% of those frames are not easily repairable which means straight to landfill. By choosing our sunglasses, you’re making a conscious choice to reduce waste and embrace longevity.

Made with care in Sydney

Our commitment to sustainability extends beyond design—it’s in every pair we produce. Each classic pair of sunglasses at Good Citizens is crafted in Sydney from a single discarded plastic bottle. Humans bring the creativity and our 3 robots bring the quality and absolute precision to each frame made. This innovative approach not only reduces plastic waste but also gives new life to materials that would otherwise harm the environment. We have zero waste in our process.

Fashion and sustainability converge

The aviator, round, and wayfarer styles have graced the faces of countless icons throughout history. The aviator style, originally designed for pilots in the 1930s, gained popularity thanks to celebrities like Tom Cruise and Jennifer Aniston. Round sunglasses, popularised in the 1960s by music legends like John Lennon, continue to be a symbol of artistic expression. Wayfarers (rectangle), introduced in the 1950s, have been worn by everyone from Audrey Hepburn to Bob Dylan, blending timeless elegance with rebellious flair.

Our efforts haven’t gone unnoticed. We’re proud to have earned the Fashion Tick of approval from Selfridges London, where we were given our own window display at its flagship store, standing shoulder to shoulder with esteemed brands like Prada. Additionally, our dedication to sustainability has garnered numerous accolades, including the prestigious Marie Claire UK Best Sustainable Accessory award.
