MARIETTA, GA – Framed in optimism: Life is Good and The McGee Group have partnered to help people focus on the good through a whole new lens. The collection features 16 ophthalmic, 17 sunwear, and 10 reader styles available for men, women, teens and kids, all inspired by inspirational people, places, and works of art.
“We are so excited to launch the Life Is Good eyewear collection with The McGee Group as a way to spread the power of optimism to even more customers” said John Jacobs, co-founder of Life Is Good. “Through the stories behind the product, we hope to inspire customers to focus on the good and embrace the world with arms wide open.”
