Since I had the idea to start this blog about women empowerment, I didn’t want to just stop there. I wanted to make a difference not only with women entrepreneurship but also by helping others that are less fortunate than me. That’s why I decided to researched, find and support companies that have a mission to give back for something greater. If we decided to look further then our designer clothes or whatever that’s on trend at the moment, we would be able to see the amazing work from communities in Africa to women that were and are victims of sex trafficking. They are creating beautiful sustainable, eco-friendly garments and products that will benefit not only themselves and their family but an entire community.
I will not be an hypocrite and say that everything that I have right now is sustainable, vegan and eco-friendly but as I am starting to get knowledge about this lifestyle and learn more about the things that are affecting the environment and our planet, I will make the transition to a better living each piece at a time. As a consumer, let’s realize and see the bigger picture when your purchasing products and garments from these charitable companies such as DIFF Eyewear, Mieroglyph and Coconut Bowls just to name a few.
I will share with you amazing finds and hopefully each and one of you will be inspired to do the same when you’ll purchase your next items. Let’s start spending consciously and with the thought that you’re helping someone else in need.
Today, I would like to share and hopefully make you discover a company that sells sustainable and fashionable eyewear. When I came across Diff Eyewear and learned about their charitable cause, I knew that I wanted to be part of this amazing charitable cause. Most of the time, we purchase things because it’s the latest fashion trends or just because one of our favorite celebrities are wearing it. A couple of months ago, I started to meditate on who, where and how the clothes and products that we buy and wear are coming from. I made some researched and that’s how I learned about sustainability and sustainable fashion.
What is sustainable fashion? It’s about being responsible of our resources, being environmentally conscious and have an awareness of how those that makes our garments are treated whether it’s both physically and mentally. Now, let’s talk about how we can ALL make a DIFFerence with DIFF Eyewear. The socially conscious eyewear company partnered with the non-profit charitable organization Eyes on Africa. Never heard of Eyes on Africa? Well, they provide eyeglasses at no cost to Africans in many communities that has no access to vision care and for every DIFF sunglass sold, DIFF will donate 1 pair of reading glasses to someone in rural Africa. By providing these reading glasses, we are helping those in need, to be able to perform tasks that are vital to their livelihood.
The DIFF Eyewear are handmade acetate sunglasses that comes in 5 different color options for the lenses, also in multiple shapes and different styles that are both suited for women and men. They have made it simple so everyone could find something to their liking.
When you’re able to find quality, affordable and stylish products which at the same time you know you’re helping to provide for those who are in need, it makes it even more worth it of that purchase.
If you would like to help this cause, I have partnered with DIFF Charitable Eyewear to gift you 25% off on diffeyewear.com using the code LIPS25.
