I’ve got a soft spot for Airwear lenses! And for people who wear glasses!
I’m getting in on the tail end of Four Eyes Pride Week (September 5-11), but there’s still plenty of time to celebrate!
If you don’t know anything about Airwear lenses, here’s some information:
Airwear lenses are thinner, lighter and more impact-resistant than standard plastic lenses while providing 100 percent UV protection. Airwear lenses are also made using environmentally conscious practices in packaging, water consumption and manufacturing waste re-use. To learn more about Airwear’s commitment to producing lighter, safer and greener eyewear for adults and children, visit LighterSaferGreener.com.
How do you celebrate glasses through the month of September? Airwear and Mary Engelbreit have teamed up and are asking parents to enter the “Breit Eyes” contest on Facebook. Post an original picture of your child being “lighter, safer, and greener” while wearing their glasses to be eligible to win great prizes: including an original Mary Engelbreit sketch of your child in the photograph!
Mary Engelbreit credits her glasses for opening her eyes for the first time. She says:
I was in second grade, loved to read, and was holding the books up so close that my parents knew it was time for glasses. Once I put on my first pair of glasses, I noticed new things, like individual leaves on trees and airplanes way up in the sky—things I had never seen before.
Plus, you can comment on this post and be entered into the drawing to receive an autographed Mary Engelbreit desk calendar! Winners will be drawn on Friday, September 16, 2011, at 5pm CST via random.org.
This post is sponsored by Airwear lenses. I received my own copy of the
Mary Engelbreit-autographed desk calendar.
I am so happy to be reviewing the Airwear lenses! I’ve mentioned before that I’m always trying to do the green thing. Airwear makes it so easy to do it, too!
According to the Airwear site, they use recycled water to process their lenses and waste products are recycled into other things such as cars and toys! What a great idea! There’s a video you can watch if you want to see how the lenses are made. Even the package has been changed; they are utilizing 100% recycled cardboard and no plastic.
Jim loves his new lenses. They really are thinner and lighter than his old glasses. He actually compared the two different lenses to make sure of that. They’re set nicely into the frames. He likes the transition lenses which are a nice improvement over his last pair of transition lenses (they weren’t “transitioning” in a good spot and he had to tilt his head at a funny angle to read!).
The turn-around for the glasses was super fast. Within three days of providing missing information (totally my fault!) the glasses arrived at our house!
Thank you, Airwear for this opportunity! I’ll definitely be looking for glasses with Airwear lenses in them in the future for myself, Jim, and Aaron (who recently was prescribed glasses). I love the idea that they are an environmentally responsible company producing an awesome product!
