Now you can buy cool-looking, eco-minded sunglasses and support a socially responsible company at the same time. Unite for Sight, a non-profit that strives to eliminate preventable blindness and promote general eye health in developing countries such as Ghana, India and Honduras estimates that 80 percent of blindness is curable or preventable.
Jamie Lim, founder of KAYU (meaning, wood) and a partner with Unite for Sight, believes that no one should be denied sight-giving treatment due to a lack of funds, so for every pair of sunglasses purchased, KAYU will sponsor one sight-restoring surgery in the developing world.
These sunglass frames are handcrafted from sustainable bamboo. Cultivated without pesticides or fertilizers, this fast-growing grass renews in just 5-7 years.
