As a Michigan native, I was thrilled to see a circular economy product coming out of Flint, a community ravaged by racism and government indifference. Do I love that the Genusee founder is a rich white woman from the affluent Detroit suburbs? No. But I will support their efforts to revitalize a small part of the Flint economy. As for the glasses, I love the classic shape and variations in frame and lens color. I even splurged on a pair of reading glasses as a gift to my mother (a nurse who has worked in community health in Flint).


Waiting on more designs!
