A reference guide to responsible shopping.
Not only will Warby Parker sell you a pair of fashionable vintage-inspired prescription eyeglasses for under $100- but for every pair they sell they will donate a pair to someone in need. Not to mention they’re also carbon neutral.
That’s right – for less than $100 you will have a complete pair of Poly-Carbonate, Anti-reflective Prescription Glasses (or sunglasses!) The same quality found in your local Eye-ware shop- only Warby Parker comes straight to you and removes all the price increasing middlemen.
When you go to their website, you have the opportunity to pick out 5 pairs of frames for an at home trial. They will send these to you- you can try them out, and pick the pair you want. After you purchase your new stylish glasses, a second pair is donated to someone else in need through a partnership with VisionSpring. They have distributed over 150,000 pairs around the world so far.
