Visualize Change!

June 06, 2016

Worldwide, an estimated 285 million people (including 19 million children) are visually impaired, and 80% of all visual impairment can be prevented or cured. For every pair of sunglasses purchased, Blue Planet Eyewear donates a pair of eyeglasses to someone in need. Each purchase also supports the work of Blue Planet’s giving partners, including small surgical teams who restore sight to under-served populations worldwide. To date, Blue Planet has donated over 150,000 pairs of glasses (and counting!), improving lives and opening eyes to new possibilities around the globe.

Inspired by their California roots, Blue Planet’s modern takes on classic designs are made with recycled and reclaimed materials combined with sustainable natural materials such as bamboo and wood. Check out the newest styles just in with 100% UVA/UVB protection and head out into the sun!
