Green Glasses Giveaway

Comments 89 by Rebecca Bollwitt

It’s only fitting that Canada’s first sustainable and green eyewear company is based in Vancouver, our beloved city that has a goal of becoming the Greenest City by 2020. Green Glasses, in Yaletown, makes Canadian-designed, handcrafted glasses using all natural organic, sustainable materials. Even the machinery used to make their lenses uses 50% less water than typical operations.

Green Glasses are are non-toxic, phthalate-free, renewable and 100 percent biodegradable. Better yet when you purchase a pair, partial proceeds are donated to the David Suzuki Foundation.
