HELP CENTER

Carl’s flock of Customer Service Parrots are answering emails as fast as their little feathers will move, but we just recently learned what FAQ actually stands for (which is not, it turns out, Flocking Awesome Quads)…see below.

You still, of course, can always email us at CarltheFlamingo@playgoodr.com where you can send us: Your adventures and stories particularly hilarious and/or a little bit gross ones, Pictures of your beautiful faces in goodrs, Pictures of your ugly faces in goodrs, Pictures of your dog’s faces in goodrs, Questions, Comments, Concerns.

Carl the Flamingo is a bird on a mission! As Head of Distribution, he makes sure to send out a tracking email providing the whereabouts of your delivery.  Please be sure to check your email (spam folder too) for a tracking email. We ship USPS first class which takes 7-10 business days. Sometimes USPS doesn’t scan packages in a timely manner, and sometimes, not until it’s reached its final destination, but we promise, if you received a shipping email, your item has left our facility!

WHERE IS MY ORDER/HOW DO I TRACK MY ORDER?

CAN I RETURN/EXCHANGE?

As part of our desperate cry for attention, we want to ensure that you are 100% satisfied with the product you purchased and that you will talk us up to all your friends (who you should totally introduce us to).  As part of our manipulation to get you to be our friend, we offer a 30 day return / exchange period on all items ordered on playgoodr.com that are returned unworn, unused, and in the original packaging. All we ask is the following:

Email CarltheFlamingo@playgoodr.com and include:
  • order number
  • which glasses you’d like to return (and if exchanging, which pair you’d like us to send you), and
  • a hand drawn picture of a pirate fighting an octopus. (We are not joking with this one.)

Depending on the nature of your request, we may require naming rights of your first born. Spoiler Alert: Your first born will be named Carl.

We do NOT currently accept returns or exchanges any Canadian/international orders. All International sales are final.

I RECEIVED THE WRONG ITEM, WHAT DO I DO?

WHOOPS! Sounds like the scurry of wild squirrels we hired to pack our shipments are at it again! Probably should get some humans to start helping us, they might be more reliable…we are so sorry! Please email CarltheFlamingo@playgoodr.com and we’ll make sure to get the rogue pair swapped out for the correct ones!

MY PACKAGE SHOWS IT’S DELIVERED, BUT IT’S NOT HERE!

That wacky post! We strongly suggest asking your mail carrier as to where exactly they placed the package. You can also ask your surrounding neighbors. In most cases the package is usually found, but you may have to file a claim with them. If in the end it turns out your package has most definitely been abducted by aliens or taken by Brad down the hall who is ALWAYS walking around shirtless with his abs and sweatpants and flip-flops, stealing packages, (every building has a Brad), please reach out and we will get you set-up with a certified Anti-Abduction replacement package!

DO YOU SHIP INTERNATIONALLY?

We are working on being able to sell worldwide, but unfortunately do not yet have that capability (outside of our Canadian friends). Fun Fact: When flamingos migrate, they do so mainly at night. They prefer to fly with a cloudless sky and favorable tailwinds (read: they are LAZY and usually DRUNK) They can travel approximately 600 km (373 miles) in one night at about 50 to 60 kph (31-37 mph). We don’t typically use the metric system, but in this case we did so you would believe us. Science.

HAVEN'T HEARD BACK FROM CUSTOMER SERVICE?

While Carl is a busy bird, and can usually be found swooping in to deliver a pre-bonk banana to someone running an ultra, his team would never ignore you! Our Customer Service parrots respond to every email within 48 hours. Unfortunately, sometimes our emails get caught on their way to your inbox. If you've been waiting for a response from our team, you may want to check your spam folder (not to be confused with the SPAM folder, where you keep all of your processed ham-like meat products)! If there isn't an email in spam, we've definitely entered the Twilight Zone. Beware of mannequins, and make sure if you're reading a book in a bank safe that you do NOT drop your glasses.

DO YOU OFFER PRESCRIPTION LENSES?

Unfortunately, we do not offer Rx. We can suggest asking your optometrist if your prescription would work with our frames. Hope you still give us a whirl, Mr. Owl!

WHEN ARE YOU MAKING NEW OG/BFG COLORS??

Our design magicians are constantly working on new ideas for colors and color combinations! We have a couple new and exciting things coming out in the next 6 months or so, and in the meantime, we will also be designing new OG and BFG colorways! This was just our first line of BFGs, we will definitely be designing more colors in the future, so not to worry! Make sure to follow us on Instagram and Facebook for updates about new products, colors and restocks!

DO YOU HAVE SMALLER/CHILDREN SUNGLASSES?

We currently do not have smaller sizes on the docket, but we hope to be able to provide various sizes and styles as our company grows! Many customers have sent us photos of their children in pairs they have pilfered from their parents…so, due to the rubber grip coating, they can and do wear them even though they are a little big.

HOW OFTEN DO YOU RESTOCK?

Our flock of storks work their wings off bringing product from the manufacturer to our warehouse, but they sometimes get waylaid by the occasional baby delivery. Typically we should be back on track in just about 1-2 weeks! Please sign up to our email list to get restock updates!

ARE YOU MAKING MORE CARL’S SINGLE AND READY TO FLAMINGLE?

Good news Carl's Single and Ready to Flamingle will return! Be sure to sign up to our email list on to get restock updates!

CLEANING INSTRUCTIONS

Here are some cleaning tips to help keep your goodrs in pristine condition and from showing signs of natural wear and tear, we recommend:

  • Using a gel-based lens cleaner and a microfiber cloth…the pouch they come in works wonders!
  • Mild soap and water and gently patting dry with a soft cloth, also works!
  • Please try to avoid harsh waters on the lenses. Saltwater, pool water and mosquito-infested swamp waters are not recommended.
  • Keeping them in the pouch when not in use.
  • Snuggly laying them on a gold encrusted pillow at night, will also ensure longevity.
I HAVE A DEFECTIVE/DAMAGED PAIR! HAAAAALP!

HOW CAN I APPLY TO BE AN AMBASSADR?

SQUAWWWK! Thanks for reaching out! We love how excited you are about joining the goodr family! Currently, the 2018 Ambassadr program, the goodr Flamboyance, is closed…our Flamboyance was chosen earlier this year. But don’t let that get you down, there’s always hope for next year! Applications will open again in December. Be sure to sign up for our email list and follow our Facebook page to get updates on product, fun runs, and next year’s ambassadr program. Thank you for the goodr love!

I’D LIKE TO BE A RETAILER

Thanks so much for reaching out and for your interest in carrying goodr in your store! We ask that you please include the location of your store, a contact phone number, and a website if you have one in your email to CarltheFlamingo@playgoodr.com!

I’D LOVE TO MAKE A CUSTOM PAIR OF GOODRS FOR MY STORE/RACE/EXPO/RUN GROUP!

Amazing, we’d love to help you create a Co-Branded pair of sunglasses! Shoot us an email at CarltheFlamingo@playgoodr.com, and we’ll work with you to hopefully bring your ideas to life!

ARE YOU ABLE DONATE/SPONSOR?

We are still a young, small company, and while we would love to help everyone, right now we only have the resources to work with three non-profit partners a year. This year, we’ve partnered with the 100 Mile Club1% For The Planet, and Breaking Silence – so at this time we are unable to do any additional sponsorships. We can connect you to a local retailer, though, if you are interested in bringing in goodrs to your event or would like to inquire about a bulk order discount.
