The El Salvador Project
Posted on by Vierra Reid
Proof Eyewear and HELP International teamed up to serve the communities of El Salvador in Central America. The project started with the design of special edition sunglasses with limited quantities available for purchase. The colorful print on the wooden frames was inspired by internationally recognized Salvadoran artist, Fernando Llort Choussy. Each frame was handcrafted using a complete skateboard deck with the printed El Salvador Project graphic, showing that the purchase was part of something bigger.
100% of the proceeds from the sale of the special edition frame was donated to the El Salvador Project where Proof Eyewear & HELP International volunteered in executing projects related to economic development, environmental conservation, education, and visual health.
The projects provided solutions that wouldn’t pay off a problem temporarily but would solve economic and environmental challenges for a lifetime.
