The Latest: Sunglasses for the Socially Conscious

TOMS announced this week they are no longer a shoe company, but a one-for-one company as they unveiled their newest product offering: sunglasses.

But they’re not the only ones. Warby Parker Eyewear is also launching a line of sunglasses this summer with the one-for-one model.

TOMS is also working with Seva Foundation to provide medical treatment and sight-restoring surgery. Warby Parker is working with VisionSpring to help low-income women launch self-sustaining businesses in their community.

We’re thrilled that these companies, and others like them, are challenging for-profit companies to build giving back into their business models.

Interested in how the different sunglasses lines compare? Our friends at HalogenTV.com have extensive coverage, including this comparison infographic (click to enlarge).

What are your favorite brands and companies that give back?
