British designer Stella McCartney announced she will launch a new line of eco-friendly sunglasses sometime next year.

Besides being fashion forward, McCartney is committed to the environment as she is a vegetarian and refuses to use leather or fur in her designs. Her sunglasses will be made of more than 50 percent natural and renewable materials!

“The greatest challenge was the amount of time that was spent on research and testing to get the best quality product possible with the highest performance in terms of resistance, while still maintaining the style and finish we always try to achieve,” she told WWD.

The designer went on and explained, “Women have two sets: a classic pair they’ll have forever, and a more playful pair. We’ve added that fun element to the line. My mum had this mad pair with Christmas trees on them that I loved when I was little. Sunglasses are one of the only accessories that can really have a sense of humor. But you walk a fine line between looking like a complete idiot and getting it just right.”

McCartney is the daughter of former Beatle Paul McCartney and the late Linda McCartney. Besides having a famous dad, she is definitely making a name for herself in the fashion and green community.
