June 27 is International Sunglasses Day and, to celebrate, FAJO Magazine has partnered with our friends at Amevie for a two-week-long summer contest!

Amevie is a Toronto-based sun-care and lifestyle brand that cares. A personal struggle with skin Lupus and sun hypersensitivity gave birth to Amevie, with the purpose to educate and protect. The collection is designed in Toronto and manufactured overseas with certified partners. Bamboo is a sustainable and renewable resource, and Amevie offers a worry-free 180-day warranty.

To further their sustainability efforts, they offer repair services as well as use recycled materials as much as possible. Each pair is packed in a foldable case, pouch and cleaning cloth.

Amevie is also an official partner of Seva Canada, and with the purchase of one pair of sunglasses, the company donates to Seva Canada to ensure a child in need gets a pair of prescription eyeglasses.

FAJO is giving away three Amevie pairs, so there will be three winners. Make sure to enter for your chance to win a stylish pair of shades!

Here are the details about the prizes:

Bamboo Unisex Sunglasses – Milan

The Milan sunglasses have a round-eye design with an air of Italian sophistication. The dark grey lenses are CAT3, polarized and provide 99% UV protection. The arms are made from natural bamboo.
