Shwood Recycled Wood Shades



The only thing that's a bigger bummer than a broken skateboard is sending that broken skateboard to the landfill. As part of its Experiment With Nature project series, sustainable-wood-sunglass maker Shwood joined forces with pro skater Keith Hufnagel of streetwear brand HUF to refashion fragments of busted decks into a one-of-a-kind, not-for-sale pair of striated shades (top). Shwood also teamed up with Bushmills this season to make shades from the whiskey maker's 100-year-old white oak barrels (watch a video here), but those, sadly, sold out in just a couple of weeks. Here's hoping for more of both. -Eviana
