I received complimentary product(s) to facilitate this review from the sponsoring company. This is 100% my own honest opinion and I did not receive financial compensation. No one has influenced me otherwise. This review is solely based on my own experience with this product.
With summer here, that sun is out shining bright! What better way to protect the eyes than with the perfect pair of sunglasses. Now I admit, I’m always in need of a pair. I have a tendency to loose my shades in this hectic life, or they seem to fall prey to the curious hands of my toddler. So when I had the opportunity to try out a pair of shades from Waveborn, I was more than eager!
Now let me get straight to the point of why I love Waveborn. Yes, these are pretty awesome stylish handcrafted shades. Though that’s not all they are… Amazingly, each time you a pair of these shades, through their charity partners Unite for Sight and SEE International, Waveborn generously provides a new pair of prescription eyeglasses, or help fund a portion of a vision-restoring cataract surgery for those in need.
Now my local readers will be happy to know that Waveborn actually started as a DC based social startup. With a $10,000 crowdfunding campaign goal through IndieGoGo, they reached their goal and doubled less than 36 hours! In all the campaign raised $20,700, which the help of 10 countries and 28 states. In other words, amazingly Waveborn will be able to provide over 250 pairs of glasses the needy. How awesome is that?
Waveborn offers a creative selection of six unique styles of sunglasses. The styles are unisex and look great on both men and women, no matter what the age. They generously sent me the Palisades style in Black. The paid is available in other colors such as Spring Blue, Rustic Brown, Black & Yellow, and Tortoise. If you are going to be sporting your shades in the hot summer weather all day long, you’ll be happy to know that the lenses offer 100% UV protection! Major plus in my opinion.
Like to keep your shades protected when they are not protecting your eyes? No problem! My Waveborn shades arrived in a handy micro-fiber pouch. This is great for carrying around your sunglasses, or even cleaning them.
Of course I have to thank Waveborn for keeping the sun out of my eyes while I visited sunny California last month! I tell you, with that bright sun bearing down, I need shades with protection. I have absolutely no complaints about my Waveborns!
