Donate leftover eclipse glasses for schools in other continents to see eclipse

Donate leftover eclipse glasses for schools in other continents to see eclipse”

The eclipse has come and gone - and all you're left with is grainy cell phone pictures and your eclipse glasses. If you'd like to donate your Eclipse glasses, bring them to Townsquare Media in Casper.

Just like everyone else who watched the big event on August 21, you probably have a few pairs of eclipse glasses sitting around from this week's total solar eclipse. The companies are listed here or they'll have an ISO number of 2312-2. If you plan on disposing them, do so properly by tossing the solar eclipse glasses into a trash can or recycle bin.

People in the area also will have the rare opportunity to reuse their glasses.

That's why a charity called Astronomers Without Borders want you to donate your glasses to children less fortunate, so that they'll be able to have the same unbelievable experience that you did.

It's likely millions of the glasses will be tossed somewhere now that the eclipse is over. Now that the phenomenon is over, there may be some questions about what to do with leftover eclipse glasses. They're trying to spread the word before people throw them away. If you were lucky, you even experienced the wonders of totality. Despite the lengthy time since the previous solar eclipse, the next North American event will take place with far less of a wait.

For months and months, countless eclipse-viewing hopefuls have been buying up special protective shades so that they could gaze skyward on August 21st and enjoy the attractive celestial event in all its glory.

Eclipse glasses can be dropped off at either of two Diamond Brand Outdoors locations or Frugal Backpacker by Monday, August 28, during regular business hours. Astronomers Without Borders will be announcing the details on its Facebook page sooner rather than later, so keep an eye on it and give your glasses a second chance at life.
