I often receive emails through my contact form about new products and services but this is only the second time a message has been about sunglasses. Not limiting my contest to purely big-brand items, I am pleased to partner with YEG Wood for a unique giveaway.
YEG Wood, based out of Edmonton, makes wooden apparel such as watches, iPhone cases, and sunglasses. Sustainably made from Cherrywood, their eco-chic TreeFarers style is based on the classis Ray-Ban Wayfarer. The hinges are spring-loaded so they can bend in or out and the lenses have a medium tint, rated UV400.
They have offered up a pair of wooden sunglasses to one lucky reader of mine. The winner can choose between the TreeFarer in Cherry, the TreeFarer in Rust, or the Porschler in Marble — all valued at $119.
To enter to win, leave a comment on this post naming your favourite tree species or favourite specific tree (as we’re sticking with a wooden theme). My favourite tree is in Stanley Park, just up the Third Beach Trail, although it was a victim of the windstorm five years ago.
You can also enter by posting the following on Twitter:
I will draw one winner at random from all entries on at 10:00am on December 27, 2011. If you’re in Edmonton, you can check out YEG Wood’s official launch party this Saturday as well.
Update The YEG Wood folks would like to extend a discount to all Miss604.com readers as well. The code is valid until January 15, 2012 and will take $20 off the purchase of sunglasses. Here’s how to use it on the website:

The price will be adjusted, and then you are all clear to complete your transaction.
