GROWN-Sustainable-Wooden-Eyewear

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.

In a world where gadgets are judged on how well they do their jobs despite being available in the smallest packages possible, the Hunt23 Ultra Compact Flashlight reigns supreme. They took all the life-proof features of the incredibly bright Hunt22 (iceproof / smashproof / waterproof / fireproof) and upgraded the titanium body with a tiny pry bar on the back that can be used as a flathead screwdriver or to open boxes, bottles, bags and cans. It’s also TSA-compliant so you don’t have to worry about traveling with it. This flashlight is the EDC tool you’ve been missing.
