Review: Pala Ethical and Sustainable Sunglasses

In Green & Ethical Living, Reviews, Style, Uncategorizedby eva.katona@yahoo.com4 Comments

Gifted item. There’s really only a few brands that I know about their efforts to tackle both ethical issues and environmental ones. Even though, in my view it all goes hand in hand. You can’t be ethical only or eco-friendly only. As much as it is a big challenge for all brands to make profit, be ethical without harming the …
