Kayu is a Cool Eco Eyewear Company that Believes in the Right to Sight

kayuGive the gift of sight with Kayu sunglasses this season as they offer three new styles now. This is the perfect holiday, birthday or gratitude gift to anyone in your life with divine eco style. Admirably, with every, single pair purchased, you are not only paying for the tangible gift of stylish shades but also paying for a sight-restoring surgery in the developing world.

KAYU is setting an example for fashionable eyewear lines worldwide. Unite for Sight is a non-profit organization truly dedicated to eliminating preventable blindness.

“80% of blindness is curable or preventable, yet 36 million are needlessly blind. Avoidable blindness is most common in the poorest of the poor, and has far-reaching implications that touch on all aspects of human development – social, economic and quality of life.” Eliminating preventable blindness is a global issue that persists due to a lack of funds. So help yourself in a way that brings in good karma with these designer shades.

Daily we make millions of choices that affect our planet and the people who live on it, sadly many of our choices are unconscious, and result in the degradation of our earth and its resources.

At KAYU, we believe that small changes in the way we live can have a positive impact on our environment and the global community” their Winter 2009/Spring 2010 collection is handcrafted from durable bamboo, a fast-growing grass and a viable replacement for wood.

I like the dusk rose hue on the lenses. KAYU Winter 2009 and Spring 2010 collection of sunglasses are currently available online, and at selected retailers across the US, UK and Brazil.
