We often get asked this question by customers. When it comes to choosing the best sunglasses, several factors come into play: style, lens quality, repairability, build quality, origin, and the positive impact of your purchase.

At Good Citizens Eyewear, we've mastered these elements, creating sunglasses that not only look great but also make a significant difference. Here's why our citizens think they're awesome!

Style: Award-winning designs

Fashion is an essential aspect of sunglasses, and Good Citizens Eyewear excels in this area. Our sunglasses have won global fashion awards and have been worn on some of the most famous faces that matter. They have also been featured in a Selfridges window display in London (google that! voted best department store in the world 4 x).

Whether you’re looking for aviator sunglasses, round sunglasses, wayfarer sunglasses, or cool sunglasses, our collection has something to suit every style.

Black sunglasses remain a timeless classic, and our designs ensure you’ll look effortlessly stylish.

Lens quality: Protect your eyes

The primary purpose of sunglasses is to protect your eyes, and we take this very seriously. Our sunglasses feature Carl Zeiss Vision lenses, renowned for their superior clarity and protection. Polarised sunglasses from Good Citizens reduce glare and enhance visual comfort, making them perfect for the Australian sun.

When you wear our sunglasses, you can be confident that your eyes are shielded from harmful UV rays. Additionally, we offer ultra-high-quality yellow, blue, and orange tinted lenses with full UV400 protection, good on the dance floor or walking to work!

Repairability: Sustainable and convenient

One of the unique aspects of our sunglasses is their repairability. Our innovative design allows you to repair all parts in seconds, ensuring your sunglasses last longer and stay out of landfills (we won a Good Design Award - Best in Class).

If a part breaks, we make a new one and send it to you. This commitment to sustainability means that every pair of Good Citizens sunglasses is good for the planet, embodying the principles of reduce, reuse, and recycle.

Build quality: Super light and comfortable

We believe that the best sunglasses should not only be stylish and protective but also comfortable to wear. Our frames are made in Sydney, ensuring they are of the highest quality. They are designed to be super light and comfortable, without pinching. This focus on comfort means you can wear Good Citizens sunglasses all day long without discomfort.


Versatility: Perfect for any activity

Good Citizens sunglasses are designed to be versatile and suitable for a wide range of activities. Whether you're running, playing sports, enjoying the outdoors, relaxing at the beach, fishing, or simply going about your everyday activities, our sunglasses are up to the task. Their lightweight and comfortable design ensures they stay secure and provide optimal performance no matter what you're doing. 

Made in Sydney: Feel good about what you wear

It’s essential to know where your products come from and to feel good about what you wear. Our sunglasses are proudly made in sunny Sydney, not in a sweatshop overseas. This local production ensures high-quality craftsmanship and ethical working conditions. When you wear Good Citizens sunglasses, you’re supporting Australian jobs and ethical manufacturing practices.

Positive impact: Good things happen with every sale

Every pair of Good Citizens sunglasses contributes to a better planet and community. Here’s how:

  • Environmental impact: Each purchase helps remove 10kg of CO2 from the atmosphere and prevents 28.5 plastic bottles from reaching the ocean. Our frames for our sunglasses, reading glasses and prescription are made from 100% recycled materials, with each pair crafted from a single 600ml plastic bottle.

  • Social impact: Our unique dispatch centre is run by people with disabilities, providing meaningful employment and supporting an inclusive community.

These efforts make Good Citizens Eyewear the best and most awarded sustainable sunglasses brand in Australia. Join us!
