Help Dragon help the environment with the new E.C.O. collection of shades. In an effort to help the oil spill crisis in the Gulf, Dragon has promised to donate money for each pair of Dragon E.C.O. (Environmentally Conscious Optics) Collection of sunglasses sold. Funds raised will be donated to the Foundation to fund water testing and cleanup efforts all along the damaged areas of the Gulf coast.

The hair above the brains of the covert op (Rob Machado) initiated the development of the E.C.O Collection to actively investigate methods of manufacturing environmentally friendly sunglasses by exploring sustainable materials from renewable origins. This spawned the first E.C.O sunglass frames made from 100% renewable materials, such as plant oil instead of petroleum. Behold…the E.C.O Collection. Check out the full Dragon E.C.O Collection HERE.
