Sunglasses on the roof of the world

Recently almost 600 Sunglasses were sent on their way to India. They were collected as part of the aid project «Shades of Love».   The manufacturer of eyeglasses Wear-Lite supports the aid project «Shades of Love – The Himalayan Eyewear Project». Late last year the Swiss company launched a big collection campaign of sunglasses with UV protection for the residents of a hard to reach high mountains area in India. They themselves could not afford to protect their precious sight. The result of the action is extremely gratifying: With the help of collaborating opticians, clients, friends and acquaintances Wear-Lite has managed to spend about 600 glasses to humanitarian organizations. The project was launched by the Munich star gastronome Jürgen Altmann.
Wear-Lite is a Swiss manufacturer of high-quality lenses with headquarters in Cham. The medium-sized company manufactures units is using a specially developed production technology, causing a large degree of material, energy and fresh water can be saved.
