First we blogged on Parachute a new bamboo eyewear company and now Panda Sunglasses another bamboo eyewear company is up to Social Good. The start up eyeglass company is all about providing free eye exams and eyewear to the needy in the world. Similiar to Toms Eyeglasses, Warby Parker, 141 Eyewear, for every pair sold a ‘recycled pair is given back. .Where they get the recycled eyewear from, I don’t know. They partner with the TOMA Foundation an organization that aids communities in Columbia, Argentina and India.
The frames are all made from eco friendly bamboo a fast growing grass and ‘float’.. Claiming the lenses are made from recycled polycarbonates..
No matter what, Vincent Ko is following his heart and social conscience.. we like it and the sunglasses are cool too!
