I have to face a terrible fact... I am getting older & I need to start wearing readers.
I looked at a few brands before something really cool happened. I have an amazing friend who knows what I do & works for the company Modo.* If you never heard of Modo before don't worry I had only heard of them through her but I have to admit I love what the brand and company is about. What's not to love about combing innovative designs, fashion friendly frames that are light weight and are completely affordable?
Watch my Youtube video reviewing the Paper Thin 2 optical frames (readers) and one pair of Paper Thin sunglasses I have by Modo.
I did mention that Modo has other charitable programs that are associated with two of their brands, Modo & Eco. Modo works with a foundation called Seva for a program called ‘Buy a Frame, Give a Frame’. With the help of distribution by the Seva Foundation; for every frame bought from the Modo collection, Modo donates a frame to help those in need.
ECO has a charitable program called ‘The Cameroon Project’. If you buy a frame from the ECO collection, you will aid in their "One Frame, One Tree" project. This is what Modo has to say about this particular program:
"ECO was “born recycled” in 2009, with the start of the program “One Frame One Tree” by partnering with NGO Trees for the Future. Since then, ECO donates and plants a tree for every frame sold. Today, ECO is approaching 1 million trees planted in Cameroon, Africa!
This is the Cameroon story. One that started with a seed: the idea of giving back to the world and improving lives. In 2012 we went to Cameroon to meet the people involved. We invite you to witness the impact “One Frame One Tree” continues to make on the environment and the Cameroon community."
The Modo brand frames are anywhere between$150 to $260 depending on the style, to visit their website click the link above or go to www.MODO.com.
Kinks if you’re looking for new glasses (optical or sun) I would look into this company, Modo was born in 1990 in SoHo, New York. Modo has evolved into a company that designs, manufactures and distributes a successful portfolio of house brands, designer brand and contemporary lifestyle brands – all under the common denominator of design and innovation.
Modo is a company that is globally recognized and has offices in New York, Milan and Stockholm.
