Nectar Sunglasses is one of the leading affordable eyewear brands on the market and was founded in Charleston by two surfers whose vision was to design high quality, fashionable shades that could keep up with their lifestyles. At the time Nectar was born in 2012, there weren’t any eyewear brands in the $30-$50 price range that were considered desirable to millennials and young adults, as well as durable enough for long-term use. Nectar seized this opportunity by designing a dynamic, stylish collection of sunnies that could be taken on outdoor adventures and easily replaced if broken or lost.
Nectar is also one of the only companies to break into niche eyewear, offering specialty collections that increase productivity for a variety of creative, out-of-the-box jobs, including growers, coders and glassblowers. In 2016, Nectar launched the Nectar Grow Glasses Growers series to help cannabis growers prevent ocular damage and yield more harvest. Featuring optimum 8 base frames, the collection includes two designs built for indoor and outdoor use. The Kush LEDcomes with polycarbonate lenses to block harmful LED light emitted during the weed growing process, offering ultimate protection and long-term optical health. For those who work indoors, the Kush HPS shades are proven to optimize color and clarity under HPS indoor lighting to protect the eyes and offset the unnatural color caused by artificial grow lights. Each pair of Nectar Grow Glasses is affordably priced at $49.99 and comes with a lifetime warranty.
