Helping The World Through Fashion

What do fashion, a fashion blog and helping people in need have in common? The answer is Warby Parker. Not too long ago I was introduced to this amazing company and am proud to be able help in their cause. This is not a sponsored post. Warby Parker is an online optical and sunglass company which not only provides great quality fashionable eye-wear at a fraction of a price but also helps people around the world.  Their styles are available exclusively through their website and showrooms.

Did you know that approximately one billion people don’t have access to affordable glasses? That means that 15% of the world’s population is unable to effectively learn or work because they can’t see clearly. When you purchase a new pair Warby Parker provides funding and/or glasses to non-profit partners such as VisionSpring.  Their non-profit partners provide glasses and training to low income entrepreneurs in developing countries to start their own business selling glasses to individuals who otherwise would not have access to glasses. Check out their website for more stories.
And not only is Warby Parker helping people in need, they are also taking care of our environment in the process. They actively work to reduce their environmental impact by mapping out our greenhouse gas emissions– from frame production to shipping to warehousing to office work–and purchasing carbon offsets accordingly.

Eyewear is an important part of a person’s style. It can make or break a look. As a huge fan of sunglasses and glasses in general I highly recommend you check out this brand. Check out their new fall collection which officially launches today. The collection debuts five new frames in a mix of materials—bold acetate in rich, autumnal colors at the brow and nose, and stainless steel-rimmed lenses. Each name—Ames, Ripley, Rowan, Holcomb and Ellison—is a reverent bow to some of their favorite literary references of the 60s era. The 15 options, featuring sunwear and optical, provide midcentury style without the flea market goose chase.  Did you see their new cool video? Every pair is custom fit with anti-reflective, polycarbonate prescription lenses.

Make sure you check out their website. They provide also amazing features such as Virtual Try-On and Home Try-On Program make the shopping experience fun and easy. Help their cause, help those who need it, save money and very importantly, stay fashionable through it all. Ciao!
