What They’re Saying:

  • Thomas Kimber, CEO and Founder of Karün: “We have an urgency to change the way businesses usually work, to show people that we can, and need to find better solutions to global issues. We want this collaboration to serve at least as inspiration for new generations to look for more and different ways to protect nature and its people.”

Two Companies, One Vision:

  • Shared brand values brought Karun together with National Geographic, a leader in exploration and science, to launch a new exclusive eyewear collection.
  • Karün works with natural and recycled materials provided by local entrepreneurs from Patagonia, building a circular economic model that allows them to contribute in the protection of over 400.000 hectares of pristine nature in Northern Patagonia.
  • National Geographic Partners distributes a portion of their net revenues to the National Geographic Society, an impact-driven, global nonprofit organization that uses the power of science, exploration, education, and storytelling to illuminate and protect the wonder of the world.
  • Both are examples of businesses driven to make a positive impact on people and the planet.
