Celebrate Sunnies & Share the Message of UV Protection with National Sunglasses Day

Brought to life by The Vision Council, the leading trade association for the optical industry, National Sunglasses Day is a commemorative date held annually on June 27 celebrating the importance of wearing shades to protect the eyes from the sun’s harsh ultraviolet (UV) rays.

The Vision Council encourages members and the industry at large to participate in National Sunglasses Day by posting on social media channels using the official hashtags, #SunglassSelfie and #NationalSunglassesDay, and tagging @TheVisionCouncil on Facebook and Instagram and @OpticalIndustry on Twitter.

The Vision Council has created new downloadable marketing assets, including sample social media graphics and posts, web banners, posters, logos and more. For access to the new materials, visit http://nationalsunglassesday.com/sunglasses/materials/.

Please direct any questions regarding the campaign to Hayley Rakus at hrakus@thevisioncouncil.org.
