PALA is on a mission. A mission to put an end to poverty, to protect the planet and to enable all people to enjoy peace and prosperity.
We love that Pala are putting this mission at the heart of everything they do. Their goal is to create a business that puts people and the planet before profits and ethical and sustainable practices at the forefront of our operations.
By choosing to buy a pair of Pala sunglasses you really are helping to change lives. For every pair sold Pala donates the equivalent of a pair of prescription glasses to eye-care programs in Africa.
640 million people are unable to access eyecare. A pair of spectacles is an invaluable economic tool providing empowerment for the wearer enabling access to better education. They provide a chance to operate a machine, or to thread a needle and improve overall job prospects.
Things don’t stop there. Pala work alongside a Ghanaian-based NGO to support weaving communities to make our protective sunglasses cases. Woven using traditional methods utilising otherwise wasted plastic, Pala provides a trade and an income to help them empower themselves whilst upholding tradition (and recycling as they go!).
Pala are on a journey towards a sustainable fashion future. This season Pala are continuing to innovate, offering both recycled acetate (made using otherwise binned factory offcuts) and bio-based designs.
