Glasses by Warby Parker

Tortoise Shell Patterned Glasses – from $95

You'll be hard pressed to find a more stylish pair of glasses that give back than this pair. With special screws for durability and impact resistant lenses, they offer 100% UV protection and have an anti-scratch and anti-reflective coating.

Warby Parker let you order up to five different pairs of glasses to try at home, and offer free shipping for you to deliver the ones you don't want back to them. For every pair of glasses that you buy, Warby Parker donate money to a charity that trains men and women in developing countries and provides them with a sustainable livelihood selling affordably-priced glasses.

Gives Back

Gives BackWarby Parker donate money on a monthly basis to their partner non profits who train up men and women in developing countries to sell glasses (funded through donations from Warby Parker) at affordable prices, enabling them to earn a living. They believe this model is more helpful than just straightforward donations because it creates a more economically sustainable society, and doesn’t create as much dependency on outside sources. Their primary partner is VisionSpring, and together they’ve trained over 18,000 men and women in over 35 countries, and donated over a million pairs of glasses to people in need.
