If you’ve been in the shop lately, you may have noticed a conspicuous green section of our frame board named Frames with a Cause…. Here, you will find some of our collections that are based on an eco or socially-conscious campaign:

One of our newest collections atEOF is an emerging frame line out of Chicago called A-Frames. We are excited to carry them not only for their awesome retro aesthetic, but for the philosophy behind the company. Founder Wes Stoody created the line with the intention of partnering up with The Helen Keller Foundation, who benefits from 5% of A FRAMES’ total revenue. The long established non-profit organization helps to prevent & reduce low vision, Blindness, and malnutrition in communities where this problem is prevalent. Visit AFRAMES EYEWEAR to get more details on their philanthropic direction.
Looking good AND seeing well feels that much better if someone else benefits from it, wouldn’t you agree?
