GIVE WITH LOVE

+

The team behind DL Eyewear is a very small one, and we have compassion for every startup navigating this pandemic’s uncertainty.  Annually, we donate a percentage of our profits to LISC (Local Initiatives Support Corporation), which offers financial relief and emergency assistance to small businesses negatively impacted by COVID-19.

We’re proud to give back to entrepreneurs in historically underserved communities—with a focus on people of color, members of the LGBTQIA+ community, and women—helping to connect them with much-needed resources.

PECAN MILK COLLECTIVE

Pecan Milk Co-op is a Black-owned and LGBTQ-owned worker-owned business founded in Atlanta, Georgia in 2014. They use Georgia pecans to make dairy-free milk, and other plant-based foods, with simple ingredients in glass packaging. Instead of using fortified vitamins or emulsifying additives, Original Pecan Milk contains just filtered water, Georgia pecans and sea salt. In 2021, Pecan Milk Cooperative obtained a Tennessee Department of Agriculture license to become the first and only business in the country to manufacture and wholesale plant-based milk with hemp extract CBD as an ingredient.
