Oscar Wylee’s ‘one for one’ claim dates back to 2012 when the company first launched.

The company has modified its website over the years, however variations of the ‘one for one’ claim have always featured: 2013 - 2015

As recently as 2018 Oscar Wylee was still claiming the one-for-one donation.

Another ‘one-for one’ claim, which was changed last month. Product pages originally read: “For every pair of glasses you purchase from us, we’ll donate a pair to someone in need”, however they now read: “For every pair of glasses you purchased, a portion is donated to someone in need".

A recent example of an Oscar Wylee carry bag handed to customers shows the one-for-one claim with the same claim (slightly different wording) on company business cards from stores in NSW and Victoria. Staff names redacted.
