As a small business owner I have always looked at Bissell Eye Care and wondered how I could make my practice better as well as serve my patients to the best of my abilities. As Bissell Eye Care has grown to two locations over the years, I have looked for ways to give back. We are an eye wear collection center for the local Lion’s Club.
Recently I became aware of an eye wear brand that gives back and wanted to introduce the Modo and Eco brands in our offices. Bissell Eye Care has paired up with MODO, a company that was founded in 1990 in New York. Modo was founded on the principals of helping those who need it most. Click here to learn about the “buy a frame give a frame” and “buy a frame plant a tree” programs. These are a couple of ways we will continue to be a community partner in helping those in need.
The slogan for Modo is “Buy a Frame-Give a Frame.” When a pair of Modo’s are purchased the company donates a free pair of spectacles to someone in need. They have paired with an organization called the SEVA Foundation to have the best possible outreach.
The Eco slogan of “One Frame – One Tree”, where the company along with help from the organization called Trees for the Future, will plant a tree for every frame purchased. These frames are also build out of recycled or bio based materials. The goal is to help create a cleaner world for everyone by using materials that otherwise may be discarded or left unused.
As a business owner I see true value in companies that not only look out for their one well-being but also contribute to society. As my practice has grown I have always looked for ways to give back and help those in need. By carrying the Modo and Eco frames we look to give back and say thank you to everyone who has supported us along the way!
