Eyewear for The Socially Conscious
Our Optical Shop
Giving Back to the Community
Through the Following Means....
Donating Frames To Those In Need
Many of our eyewear brands give a pair of frames to those in need with every purchase you make of one of the eyewear. 141 Eyewear regularly donates frames to children in our local community. Etnia Barcelona Foundation gives eye exams and donates glasses to children around the world who are at risk of social exclusion.
Creating Eye Clinics & Program
Many of our eyewear brands give back to our community through the creation of eye clinics and programs to give those in need eyecare. Moscot’s Mobile Eyes Program has been giving back through free eye exams and eyewear for the past 25 years. MODO’s Buy a Frame-Help A Child See Program has been donating frames to children in need around the world. Etnia Barcelona also set up a network of women-run optical shops in developing countries offering prescription glasses at below market prices.
Supporting Sustainable & Environmental Causes
Many of our brands make their products with the smallest amount of materials possible without sacrificing the product’s quality. Andy Wolf handcrafts their acetate frames from cotton grown in their very own sustainable farm. Arbor uses renewable cellulose acetate to make their wooden frames. Etnia Barcelona & XIT both use Mazzucchelli Acetate in their frames to minimize the use of plastics in eyewear.
