Shade of Love is a company created by friends, Jürgen Altman and Jean Nerva’s. Their brand mission is to refurbish used or unsold sunglasses from manufacturers and individuals and distribute them to people living in remote areas of Himalayas mountains. In these regions, UV rays are extremely strong and most of the residents do not have access to efficient solar eye protection, which causes premature damaging of their eyes and visions.
This summer, six members of the Shades of Love team visited the Nothern Zanskar valleys. They did a 12-day trek, walked around 200 km on trails and finished the trip in Leh, the closest city, with rafting. It was a true expedition and the result is here. Shade of Love was able to donate 1350 sunglasses to adults and children.
Vuarnet didn’t hesitate when this company came to see us and it’s with a great pleasure that we share the photos of this trip and the captured happiness on the local faces with our sunglasses. We had to share this experience with you!
