Congratulations to Matt, our CUSTOMER OF THE WEEK!

Matt has never been one to shy away from colorful or funky frames, recently he’s been sporting a really terrific pair of purple Anne et Valentin frames. When he came in to Eye Spy for a change of style, we knew the direction to turn in was RED!

Red red glasses you make me feel so fine, feel so fine, all of the time

Awesome choice, Matt, these Theo frames look terrific on you!

Check out these gorgeous Anne et Valentin frames on KAREN!!!


Isn’t it fantastic how she can wear such a bold frame and the first thing you notice is her sparkling blue eyes?! That’s why we love the designs of Anne et Valentin, they have a way of making a statement, while allowing the person wearing them to still look like their own beautiful and charming self.

So, Congratulations Karen! You’re our CUSTOMER OF THE WEEK!!!

Tyvek® can be recycled…and so can eyeglasses!

Written by on September 4th 2009

i know, i know….what does tyvek® have to do with eyewear you ask?!

well, here at eye spy optical we love our planet and do our best to reduce, reuse and recycle….but when we receive shipments from a couple of our vendors, they are in tyvek® fedex packs:-( i was always sad having to throw these envelopes in the garbage instead of in our recycling bin…

BUT NOT ANYMORE! i just found out that the tyvek® envelopes can be sent back to dupont for recycling!! Yipee, yahoo! they are #2HDPE, so technically chicago *can* recycle them, but who know what chicago does with them! dupont makes the tyvek® into alternative wood products like park benches:-)

for quantities under 25:

Turn any Tyvek® envelope inside out, so the unprinted white surface shows on the outside. Stuff the inside-out Tyvek® envelope with other used Tyvek® envelopes for recycling.

Address and mail the envelope to:
Tyvek® Recycle
Attn. Shirley B. Wright
2400 Elliham Avenue #A
Richmond, VA 23237

For other quantities and info, check out the dupont recycling page:-)

so nice! and speaking of recycling…

eye spy recycles old eyeglasses by sending them to an organization called New Eyes for the Needy.

if you cannot make it into eye spy and have eyeglasses to donate,
you can send them directly to:
New Eyes for the Needy
549 Millburn Avenue
PO Box 332
Short Hills, NJ 07078

If you have any other little-known recycling tips, please e-mail us!!
