Miru was born on the hiking trails of Watkins Glen State Park, in Upstate New York. On the dirt path, between the trees, I shielded my eyes to look over the massive gorge that wound throughout the park. And there went my sunglasses over the edge. Well then. It wasn’t the best way to start off a hike, but at least the view was worth it - when I had my hand over my eyes.
Back home, I began my search for a new pair of sunglasses. I was looking for something warm and comfortable, yet sleek and modern. But the more I browsed the internet, the more I found that there was a lack of quality sunglasses that appealed to my style, fit within my budget, and also embodied my belief of appreciating and protecting the environment. I wanted glasses I could wear out on a stroll through the Big Apple, as well as beneath the leafy canopies of hiking trails. I wanted more to sunglasses than just plastic frames sitting on my face. And thus, Miru was born.
Miru’s Core Philosophies
At Miru, we always have our three core philosophies at heart. Our first and foremost pillar is quality. Each pair of Miru sunglasses is handcrafted and inspected to ensure that we ship only the best. Believe us, we get it- poor quality products suck. There’s not much worse than a buying something brand new, only for it to break within a week and then getting stuck on hold with customer service for 40+ minutes.
We also strive to do our utmost best to keep our customers happy; even long after they’ve purchased from us. That’s why we have a personal satisfaction guarantee. If necessary, we’ll offer a full refund. It’s the right thing to do.
Lastly, we’re not here just to make a buck- we genuinely care about our customers and about the world we live in. We strongly believe that it is our duty to give back. Because of this, Miru ensures that for every pair of sunglasses that is sold, a tree is planted (read more about our pledge here). Additionally, we will also donate a portion of the proceeds to our local community.
At Miru we believe it is our both our corporate and individual responsibility to help this planet. After all, this one-of-a-kind planet is all we got. That's why we have made it our mission to help combat deforestation. We partner and work with amazing organizations worldwide that have collectively planted millions of trees. We rely on their years of experience, and their respective partners, who work hand and hand with local communities to ensure that proper native tree species are planted in the the most sustainable manner.
Join us in creating a sustainable future for all.
