Our Story

Eco-friendly sunnies, made out of bamboo, with $5 going towards conservation, for less than $100? Yep, you better believe it!
When our founders, Scott and Ryan, started Koalaty in 2019, their goal was simple - they wanted to provide the most comfortable and unique sunglasses, at a price that seemed too good to be true! Not only that, they wanted to create something that had some real meaning and purpose - they wanted them to help make the world a better place!
So, how did they do that?
Well, after looking at a variety of different designs and materials, they eventually decided that some eco-friendly bamboo sunnies were the way to go. You see, bamboo sunnies are up to 33% lighter than your traditional plastic pair, making them much more comfortable to wear all day long! Here at Koalaty, we make sure to only utilise sources of bamboo that meet FSC and BSCI standards, allowing our glasses to be as eco-friendly as possible.
After agreeing on how they were going to make them, they then needed to figure out how they were going to help make the world a better place. Since the beginning, Scott and Ryan have been dedicated to the idea of donating $5 from each pair sold to a conservation fund related to each design.
Since launching at the end of 2019, Koalaty has already managed to raise and donate over $8,000 for conservation efforts! Not only that, we’ve also managed to sell over 1,600 pairs across the whole of Australia, whilst also making it to the US, UK, Germany, Finland, and New Zealand!
