REELAB supports Shades of Love.
The nonprofit organization SHADES OF LOVE collects new and used sunglasses and distributes them in remote, high-altitude regions.
In the busyness of everyday life, there are many things we take for granted; one example is our eyesight. We do not truly recognize its value until we no longer have it. The majority of the inhabitants of the Himalayas and the Andes live above 2500–5000 meters and are therefore exposed to intense sunlight all year round. The potential consequences of UV radiation are serious eye diseases, inflammation, and even blindness. This can have a devastating impact on their quality of life, limiting their ability to work and threatening their very existence.
