Recycled Glasses -- Lookin' Good

Glasses_istock_000006249547xsmallWhat do Ewan McGregor, George Michael, and Michael Caine have in common?

They all wear glasses. Unlike 153 million people worldwide, these celebs can easily snag a new pair, so they've donated their old specs to Sightsavers to raise funds to aid sight-impaired people in the developing world.

Is it time to update your frames? Whether you bid on Ewan's specs or buy recycled vintage frames, be sure to donate your old glasses to an organization that'll give them a second life. Lions Clubs and Give the Gift of Sight both accept and redistribute used eyeglasses.
