      Press Release:

      Proof Eyewear To Release Do Good Project Sunglasses Tuesday:

      100% of Sales will be Donated to The Philippines Project

      Boise, Idaho –​ Proof Eyewear is releasing The Philippines Project Sunglasses on Tuesday, December 15th to benefit the project set for February 2016. Volunteers, including Proof employees, will assist in initiatives to support the communities and people of the Philippines. These volunteers will execute projects related to economic development, education, visual health, reforestation, and empowerment of vulnerable populations. The project will run from February 5th through February 14th. 

      “We’ve spent months working on this project, and we’re thrilled to give our customers a chance to share the ‘Do Good’ mentality this Christmas season. This is our fourth Do Good Project where our team is able to actually see the lasting differences these projects make. We started Proof as an eco-friendly solution to an everyday product, but more importantly to be a socially conscious brand that people feel good about purchasing.” Tanner Dame, COO of Proof Eyewear.

      The Philippines Project Sunglasses are handcrafted using repurposed Canadian Maple skateboard decks. The design features Filipino inspired bamboo leaves on each temple with green accents. The frames offer polarized lenses to protect from harmful sunrays as well as spring-loaded hinges that allow for a more comfortable fit no matter the face size.

      “This summer, we saw a young Salvadorian girl see for the first time in her life. Watching something like that is life changing, so we’re anxious to get over to the Philippines with HELP International to see what can be accomplished. Our bird logo represents the belief that everyone has the wings to fly but, some just need a little help.” Brooks Dame, Founder & CEO of Proof Eyewear. 

      The Philippines Project Sunglasses will have an MSRP of $120. For customers wishing to make an impact but looking to spend a little less, a project t-shirt is available for an MSRP of $25. The products will be available for purchase starting December 15th at iwantproof.com.

    • We're global citizens and choose to use a socially conscious business model to do good

      Here at Proof, we always strive to give back to those around us; it’s really how we got our start. 
We want to provide quality products that have meaning and do something beneficial through the purchase of those products. Along with doing good to mother nature, we also
 work at doing good to those around the world. A portion of each purchase goes to a worthy cause that we've chosen to donate to.

      Since our start in 2010, we’ve helped provide tsunami relief in Japan, child soldier rehabilitation in Africa, and reforestation in Haiti. In 2013, we embraced the idea of donating funds on a project-by-project basis. That year, we started by donating funds to build two eye clinics in India where over ¼ of the world’s blind population resides. Both clinics continue to provide sight–giving cataract surgeries to those in need. In 2015, we had the best of both worlds and were able to give back globally and locally. We traveled to El Salvador for various community projects with a donation totaling over $12,000 and shortly after we were able to donate $12,000 to The Nature Conservancy in Idaho. Whether it be in Idaho or India, for maintaining land or providing eye care, we consider ourselves global citizens and will continue to use a socially conscious business model to do good.
