How do bamboo sunglasses float on water?

How do bamboo sunglasses float on water?

Good news! They float! This means you can take them for a sunset ocean walk, sea shark fishing, yachting and so on. They will stay close to the water surface so that you can rescue them in case you drop them into the water. Isn’t it amazing?

However, be careful! Don’t risk your safety in case you drop your sunglasses overboard, or water current quickly brings them away.

How id it possible, though?

Those frames are made of bamboo wood. Some may think that wooden eyewear may be heavier than the plastic one. But wooden frames are actually usually lighter. In fact most plastics used in sunnglass frames have a density above 1g/mm³, for example cellulose acetate which has a density of 1.84g/mm^3. Wood has in general a lower density than 1g/mm³ for example bamboo which we have used in our Skoggers bamboo collection of  wooden frames has a density of 0.3-0.4g/mm³.

That being said, you should try to keep them dry when you can or dry them off if they do get wet. Now go grab your your fishing rod and enjoy your water proof wooden sunglasses!
