The Ray-Ban Wayfarer Just Got An Eco-Friendly Upgrade

The Ray-Ban Wayfarer Bio-Acetate is going green with a sustainable new design.


If you think of the best menswear essentials like a versatile blank canvas from which you can build anything, you start to see how the classics can be improved upon — like the timeless Ray-Ban Wayfarer, newly updated in eco-friendly materials.

That’s an understatement, as the Ray-Ban Wayfarer Bio-Acetate ups the ante even further by using a 67 percent blend of eco-conscious materials for an impressive dash of sustainable fashion.


For a pair of sunglasses that’s stood the test of time and graced the faces of some of the most stylish guys of all-time, it’s a modern move that makes plenty of sense in the year 2022.

The materials that make up these fresh frames are carefully selected in their own right, with the blend harnessing everything from wood pulp to beets, cereals and sugarcane.

Ray-Ban definitely knows they’ve got a classic on hand to work with, noting that “The Wayfarer has never stood still,” and now, the newest innovation “breaks the mold once more.”


Helpfully, the newest Ray-Ban Wayfarer — a model the company recently updated in a run of summer-friendly vibrant colors — still retains the hallmarks of the OG model, including color options like Black and Havana.


One of the coolest style options of the new Ray-Ban Wayfarer Bio-Acetate might be, however, the choice to pick up striped frames in sleek colors like blue or a smokey grey variety.

Naturally, it’s tough to improve upon a legendary style, but going back to the drawing board has yielded some environmentally conscious results.

And like nearly all Ray-Ban models, accessibility is at the core of what the brand does — pick up a pair of the Ray-Ban Wayfarer Bio-Acetate priced under $200 (between $183 and $198, to be exact).

This is one set of summer sunglasses designed to make you feel as good about wearing them as any on the market — style yourself accordingly.
