So you've experienced the eclipse and now have these funky-looking glasses that remind you of seeing a 3D movie back in the day. Yet, what are you going to do with them now?

Yes, some kid will wear them to school. Perhpas a crafty type mom will glue a pair in a scrapbook of memories for the future. But most likely they'll end up in the junk drawer in the kitchen, or in the sock and underwear drawer of your dresser, or just somewhere in your kid's room until you decide to throw them out.

Yet, you don't have to do that. You can pay it forward and help other kids enjoy future eclipses.

Eclipse Glasses USA, which makes high-quality eclipse glasses has set up a recycling program for used eclipse glasses in good condition.

They write, "Few celestial events capture the human imagination quite like a solar eclipse. It's a moment when the sun, moon, and earth align in perfect harmony, casting a shadow that momentarily turns day into night. For many, witnessing this natural phenomenon is a once-in-a-lifetime experience. But to safely enjoy this spectacle, one needs the right equipment: eclipse glasses."

Eclipse Glasses USA is asking individuals and organizations to donate their used eclipse glasses to be repurposed for future events in other parts of the world. Eclipse Glasses USA says one of the primary beneficiaries of the glasses is school kids in countries where getting eclipse glasses isn't easy.

The company hopes to provide educational institutions in these places with the tools they need to offer their students a safe and enlightening eclipse-viewing experience while fostering a love for astronomy and science in these young people.

If you'd like to donate to Eclipse Glasses USA Give-Back Program, send your used but undamaged eclipse glasses here: Eclipse Glasses USA, LLC, PO Box 50571, Provo, UT 84605. Glasses must be shipped by August 1, 2024. Eclipse Glasses USA hopes to send this round of recycled eclipse glasses to schools in Latin America, so school-aged children can view the October 2024 Annular Eclipse.

More details on the program can be found here.
