Green School had a very special guest come visit us about a week ago. Mitchell came half way across the world from Pawleys Island, South Carolina to come share Swell Shades. Thinking “why would you pay $150 for glasses that are just made out of plastic?” he did a little research and saw that wooden glasses were the new thing. Being a young adult he wanted to do something creative. He found out that bamboo was cheap and would be an interesting materials for sunnies. As he started fooling around on Instagram he was getting a lot of likes. More and more people wanted to buy his sunnies; this gave him the courage to turn his idea into reality. Now he is pretty well known and is making a lot of money from his sunglasses. It was an honor to have somebody starting at such a young age come to our school and teach us about his experience.
