What to do with your eclipse glasses now

Before you toss out your eclipse glasses, consider donating them to Warby Parker.

Why it matters: Reduce, reuse and recycle, folks.

How it works: Warby Parker is accepting all solar eclipse glasses that are still in usable condition — so not bent, scratched or broken — at its stores through the end of the month.

  • The prescription glasses retailer will donate the eclipse glasses to Astronomers Without Borders, which will distribute them to educators and students around the world.
  • There are Warby Parker locations in Rice Village, The Heights, the River Oaks area and Memorial City.

Alternatively … you could save them for the 2044 U.S. total solar eclipse, if you've mastered the art of not losing stuff over two decades.
