Pick of the Week: Warby Parker Glasses

Haskell-Burnt-Lemon-Tortoise-Still-Life

I recently came across a pretty cool glasses and sunglasses company: Warby Parker. Not only is the frames’ repertoire incredibly stylish, but their commitment to give back to society is incredibly inspiring (and specially for a Salvadoran like moi!)

“Buy a Pair, Give a Pair” is Warby Parker‘s social campaign. Together with Vision Spring, they support campaigns in El Salvador and India, with vision screenings and donations of prescription glasses, sunglasses and eye drops. I find this to be an eye opening idea! Their aim is to give people who can’t afford glasses, an opportunity for a future. Their idea is that you need to see to learn, and you need to see to work. So whenever you buy a Warby Parker pair, you’re donating towards a pair for somebody with less resources.

Today, Warby Parker has launched its new Summer collection, and needless to say, their glasses are to die for! Their Banks and Haskell styles are amazing! As a user of reading glasses, I’m also lusting after their Haskell eyewear version. 

Hace poco me topé con una marca de lentes súper interesante: Warby Parker. Además de tener un repertorio de gafas increíbles, también poseen una ética empresarial muy inspiradora.

La campaña de responsabilidad social de Warby Parker lleva por nombre “Buy a Pair, Give a Pair” (Compra un par, dona un par). Junto a la ONG Vision Spring, promueven campañas de visión en El Salvador y la India. A través de ellas ofrecen análisis de vista y donan gafas de prescripción y gotas de ojos. Con esto pretenden ayudar a personas de escasos recursos a aspirar a un mejor futuro. La idea de ambas empresas es que es necesario ver para aprender y ver para trabajar. 

Hoy, Warby Parker ha lanzado su más colección de lentes de verano. No necesito decirlo, pero los anteojos son para morirse! Mis estilos preferidos son Banks y Haskell (también para disponibles con prescripción). Qué les parecen?
