Locals Only Project: The Whole Story

The Locals Only Project offers us an opportunity to turn our focus to one incredible outdoor town every year; to uncover the lifestyle of a new community of Natives; to share in the beauty of a homegrown spirit and spread it to those who share our core values of adventure and exploration.

We feel there’s no better way to convey this local native spirit than to tap into the local community itself. We collaborate with our fans to tell us where to go and help us identify the people best equipped to capture the stories once we’re there. It’s a chance to highlight local talent through the adventures and lives of true natives; to tell the tales of those who have chosen to adopt a lifestyle most of us only dream about.

It’s this amazing collective effort that makes the end product of the Locals Only Project so special. We walk away from the endeavor with a collection of phenomenal stories and imagery that capture the true essence of our featured town, each shared with our community through various advertising initiatives year after year. But what stays with us are the relationships we foster throughout the experience, and the community that we get to be a part of for years to come.

This is what it means to celebrate the lives of those too amazing to be seen through an ordinary lens. This is what it means to be a true Native.

Protect Public Lands with every purchase!

For the month of June, Native Eyewear is donating $5 for every sunglass, goggle, lens kits, or accessory sold online to the Outdoor Alliance and their Protect Our Public Lands campaign.

All of us at Native believe in protecting the wilderness: the places that make us feel we’ve escaped the daily norm and the places that make us feel alive. We’re thankful for the places we know like the back of our hands, and for the lands we have yet to explore.

At Native, we’re proud to play a small part in protecting these special places with castor-based, biodegradable frame resins in our sunglasses and goggles and by taking it one step further to ensure the lasting integrity and preservation of those places by supporting incredible organizations like the Outdoor Alliance.

So wherever these places exist for you, we hope you consider visiting their website and signing their petition to show policymakers that you support public lands.
