SOLO Eyewear

Did you know that 80% of the worlds blindness is preventable? I didn't - until stumbling on this brand called SOLO while in San Diego last weekend. The brainchild of two San Diego State students - SOLO eyewear not only creates sustainable products (glasses feature bamboo - one of the world's fastest growing plants) - but it also has a social cause aspect - for each pair purchased, the buyer can decide whether the profits from their purchase should go to help paying for glasses or surgeries for the less fortunate. SOLO has a kickstarter page here - join the movement!

Oh, and shout out to the first brand that I was aware of that made rockable glasses out of wood - SHWOOD. Their use of Zebra wood is impeccable.
