Outside of the awesome t-shirt you found in a thrift store overseas, most of your apparel probably has little in the way of a backstory. It looked cool so you bought it. Not exactly stimulating conversation. With GROWN’s sunglasses, not only are you getting a kick-ass pair of shades, but you’re getting gear with some meaning behind it. For each item purchased, GROWN funds sight-restoring surgery for one person or eye exams for 12 children. So with one pair of wooden shades, you could be protecting up to 26 eyeballs! Of course it doesn’t hurt that the sunglasses crafted from bamboo, zebrawood or dumu wood look damn nice too.
