Who Do You Want to Be?
Back-to-School with Warby Parker
College is one of the few opportunities where you get to create your identity. Who do you want to be? Small town kid sampling life in the big city? Shy, self-conscious bookworm trying to get through the year? This is your time to step up and take charge of how the world sees you, not to mention how you affect the world, and if you wear glasses, you should look into Warby Parker.
Warby Parker is a globally-minded, trend-setting eyewear company that is changing the way the world sees glasses. Their ultra-hip eyewear is popping up on celebrity Instagram feeds and getting noticed in fashion circles. (Check out the Karlie Kloss x Warby Parker Collaboration.) Warby Parker frames are sourced from sustainable materials and manufactured by family companies. For every pair purchased (and they are all absolutely affordable), they give a pair of their own eyeglasses to VisionSpring, a a charity that trains people in low-income communities around the world to conduct eye exams and set up businesses selling glasses for a few bucks a piece. They have already donated over a million pairs. And,they have a Home Try-On program where you pick five styles online that you like, they send them to you, you try them on, pick out your favorite for purchase online and return your samples… the entire home-try-on program is FREE!
Warby Parker cares about eyewear, cares about the planet and cares about you.
So, when you return to school this year, who would you like to be? The self-indulgent adolescent who looks as if they've stepped from the pages of Diary of a Wimpy Kid, or the mindful, young adult ready to take on the world Clark Kent-style? Let Warby Parker help you choose.
