There’s nothing like the feeling of relaxing in the sun after a refreshing dip in the sea on your yacht or catching the breeze as you sail on to your next destination. Yet, it’s important to remember to keep yourself protected from harmful sun rays, even on a cloudy day. That’s why we’ve spoken with Ana Caracaleanu, from the sustainable sun wear company Amevie, who gave us some great tips on choosing the right sunglasses for your next boat holiday.

Why did you choose bamboo as the material for your sunglasses?
Bamboo is a sustainable natural resource, and harvesting it does not damage ecosystems like the deforestation of hardwoods does. The sunglasses are much lighter, and fit more comfortable on any face shape, which is very important when you have to wear them for lengthier times.
