According to the National Post, if Al Gore and Elle McPherson had a child together, she’d probably turn out like Summer Rayne Oakes.
Dubbed the world’s first eco-model, Oakes seeks to beautify the planet in addition to the magazine pages she graces. With degrees in Environmental Science and Entomology from Cornell University, she pairs her knowledge of what ails the earth with her career in the fashion industry. The gorgeous activist and sustainable strategist works exclusively with eco and socially conscious designers, companies and programs. She is also the author of the bestseller, Style Naturally: the savvy shopping guide to sustainable fashion and beauty.
Summer has teamed up with MODO Eyewear for a cool new green sunglasses collection. Every pair of shades in the line is made from at least 95% recycled materials. The sunglasses are crafted from recycled plastic and hypoallergenic stainless steel. The cases are also green, as they're made from recycled PET bottles. These retro inspired frames in solid, ombre, and tortoiseshell colors are and all year round treat.
MODO is also a member of 1% for the Planet and they pledge to plant a tree for every pair of sunglasses sold. If you want another style simply send them back to MODO who will help you recycle them. The company has a special take-back program that fills your frames with prescription lenses for vision impaired people in need.
Oakes certainly proves that pretty is as pretty does.
