E27: Ed Bird
Style, Sustainability & Social Responsibility
11th February 2024 | 36 minutes
In this episode Ed takes us on a rather un conventional route to how he founded Bird Eyewear. From working in a kitchen, charity sector, education and drummer of a band, Ed has found a way to combine his design, business and charity experiences into a purpose driven company.
Together with his brothers, Ed is dedicated to crafting eyewear that not only sets trends but also serves a greater purpose. Bird Eyewear stands out by transforming waste materials like discarded bins and recycling old frames into fashionable eyewear. Their commitment extends to meaningful partnerships with charities such as Solar Aid, and they are constantly exploring ways to minimise production waste. Bird Eyewear is more than just an accessory; it’s a statement of style, sustainability, and social responsibility.Back to podcasts
