Woody Frames was founded by Alex Gomez and Clayton Gravely. Both in their late 20’s and from sunny South Florida, they were tired of losing their sunglasses in the ocean. Wearing bulky sunglasses that sink to the bottom of the ocean, was not the outcome they were looking for.
Alex Gomez is a surfer and snowboarder that grew up in Northern California boarding down the mountains of Lake Tahoe. It wasn’t after Alex was 15 years old and moved to Boca Raton, FL. that he discovered his love for surfing. Clayton Gravely grew up in Orlando, FL. and spent most of his time outdoors fishing and boating. Alex and Clayton met while attending Florida Atlantic University in Boca Raton.
Our vision for Woody Frames is for people to be aware of alternative materials and products that are eco-friendly and sustainable for the environment. We want the world to know that living an eco-friendly life and using eco-friendly products doesn’t mean a sacrifice in quality or style. Producing eco-friendly sunglasses that look great and feel good but, can also be offered at reasonable prices is essential. Many eco-friendly sunglasses companies are selling their products for upwards of $120. We want to make sure that those who want to live an eco-friendly lifestyle don’t have to spend a fortune to do so. We look out for our customers by saving their wallets and sunglasses from sinking!
Our mission is to promote an eco-friendly lifestyle! As more people adapt an eco-friendly lifestyle and share it with others, it generates more awareness around sustainable living. Now more than ever, our oceans are feeling the negative impact caused by pollutants, products and waste. We believe an excellent way of promoting an eco-friendly lifestyle is by encouraging the community to go outside and take in mother nature. Enjoying the outdoors promotes a positive mood, an increase in energy and an overall healthier wellbeing. While taking care of ourselves, we can also take care of the Earth.
Losing a pair of sunglasses in the water is inconvenient, frustrating and even disappointing. If you’re enjoying a day out on the water, you shouldn’t have to worry about losing your sunglasses. Hence why we created Woody Frames, sunglasses that float in the water! Everyone should be able to enjoy the outdoors without worrying about losing their sunglasses in the water.
