Warby Parker Eyeglasses Bring BuyOneGiveOne Model to MKE
|Yeah, that guy wears 'em.|
According to WP "Almost one billion people worldwide lack access to glasses, which means that 15% of the world’s population cannot effectively learn or work." Warby Parker partners with non-profits like VisionSpring distributed a pair of glasses to someone in need for each pair sold. They have already donated over 3 million pairs worldwide.
They are also a green-neutral company, helping protect the environment which falls in line with other company initiatives for a positive culture.
So they are green and charitable, that sounds like an expensive business model - yet they say their glasses are affordable. So, what do they consider affordable? Try $95 for prescription glasses. Yeah, that qualifies.
Warby Parker seems to fall right in line with what GMM considers a model business: environmental and charitable aspects combined with great style at an affordable price - what's not to love? When I need my next pair I will definitely keep them in mind.
