Can you keep your solar eclipse glasses for 2024?

Planning on saving your eclipse glasses? Here's what NASA has to say
The organization will first make sure the glasses are not counterfeit or unsafe before sending them out to people in South America and Asia for the next celestial event in 2019, Astronomers Without Borders spokesperson Scott Roberts said.
Innovative Roofing and Siding Inc.is collecting eclipse glasses for Astronomers without Borders right here in Knoxville.
If you're planning on saving them for the next grand event, southern Colorado will experience full totality for the next eclipse in 2045. Also, don't bend them - since they'll become unusable. "Such warnings are outdated and do not apply to eclipse viewers compliant with the ISO 12312-2 standard adopted in 2015". NASA says if you have the ISO-approved glasses and the lenses aren't scratched or torn, you can use them indefinitely, so yours will be good in another six or so years. Luckily, another total solar eclipse is coming to America in 2024, and glasses made with the most recent specifications will still be good then, according to NASA.
Most, though, will have the glasses lying around until they get scrapped to the garbage. In fact, there's a decent chance you might move (at least) once during that time span.
The eclipse has come and gone - and all you're left with is grainy cell phone pictures and your eclipse glasses.
There are better options than just throwing them in the trash, including saving them for a future eclipse or donating them to others. Astronomers Without Borders has not yet released full details of the program, but more is available on the organization's Facebook page. Neither does the plastic frame of sturdier glasses.
