Article One was founded with a single goal in mind – to increase the funding for vitamin A supplementation in developing countries. After learning about the problem, we could not believe how few people knew that about One Million children die or go blind each year from vitamin A deficiency. More importantly, just $1 per year will fund a year’s worth of life-saving supplements for one child. We then resolved to start an eyewear brand with the mission of raising awareness and funding for vitamin A supplementation.
After the mission was established, we realized something. There is a lack of high-quality products in the cause-driven market. It seems that most cause-driven brands focus all their energy on marketing, and not enough on product development. We want to change that. Article One develops and sells a truly hand crafted line of eyewear at a price point that is accessible to most.
So here we are. Dedicated to creating an amazing product along with raising funds for vitamin A supplementation. We will never stop striving to be better. We will never sway from our original mission.
