July is UV Safety Awareness Month- Custom Sunglasses Make Great Handouts

July is UV safety awareness month and quite rightly so because the UV rays are the strongest during the late spring and early summer in North America. So can there be a better handout like custom sunglasses for marketers to inspire their clients and customers to wear sunglasses and spread awareness on the importance of protecting eyes from UV rays. Continuous exposure to bright sunlight increases the risks of cataracts, macular degeneration and cancer among other diseases.


The invisible Ultraviolet rays remain in the atmosphere in all 4 seasons including winter when the sun may not be even visible. UV rays can penetrate and damage skin cells. The risks of UV exposure will be most during 10 a.m. and 4 p.m during summer months in the US.

The summer month of July  is a great time for everyone to hit the beaches and the tanning beds, which emits higher UV rays  than sunlight. So, wearing a pair of UV resistant sunglasses is important to ensure eye safety in all these situations. Businesses can encourage employees and clients to stay UV safe by spreading awareness on exposure risk and the signs and symptoms of overexposure to the sun.
