...LOL, do not be fooled, those UV rays were still very much out and about. Thank goodness for the glasses. Not ready to just toss 'em? Here are a few more ideas.

Astronomers Without Borders has begun running a collection drive for students throughout America and Asia, so they can catch their own glimpse of the solar eclipse that will roll through their skies in 2019.
More than 2 million glasses were handed out across 7,000 libraries, courtesy of the Space Science Institute. A great way to guarantee future generations can continue to watch solar eclipses? Treating the earth with kindness. Just be sure to remove the solar lenses before tossing your glasses in the recycling bin. Some camera stores will recycle the solar lenses, so if you're really committed, make a few calls.
