The reality is that trend-focused eyewear purchases only lead to filling landfills with plastics and emitting greenhouse gases with their glass melting activities. The solution?

They considered that a sniper firing one well-aimed round at a time was a holdover from trench warfare. On December 6, 1934, the German Army’s High Command ordered all “Telescope Sight Rifles” to be turned in by the 15th of that month.
