Much like TOMS Shoes, the Warby Parker Do Good initiative tackles a strict one for one policy. As far as hip goes, this New York-based glasses company brings together fashion's finest designs with an impressive social business platform.
For every pair of reading glasses purchased from the United States brand, the Warby Parker Do Good initiative will donate a free pair of reading glasses to someone in Africa. With almost one billion people not having access to reading glasses, Warby Parker is bridging the gap between accessibility and necessity. So far the company has distributed over 250,000 pairs and hopes to increase this number in the near future.
