Bamboo Glasses

Not only are these glasses cute and stylish, they are made from bamboo! The glasses were created and crafted by Kayu. The glasses were not only designed to help sunglass consumers look stylish but be conscious shoppers. By purchasing a pair of glasses your money goes to helping someone get their vision back. How you ask? Kayu has collaborated with United For Sight Inc. and $50 from every purchase of a pair of sunglasses goes to United For Sight and aids in giving sight-giving surgeries to those in need.

As the Kayu website states;
"80% of blindness is curable or preventable, yet 36 million are needlessly blind. Avoidable blindness is most common in the poorest of the poor, and has far-reaching implications that touch on all aspects of human development - social, economic and quality of life. Eliminating preventable blindness is one of the world's most urgent problems and one that persists due to a lack of funds. "
