Sunglasses Made From Fishing Nets - KIALOA

May 25, 2018

Reuse, Renew, and Recycle is the new mantra for ocean loving folks. We are all trying to get on the bandwagon to ban plastics and reuse items to make new products.

COSTA SUNGLASSES TO REUSE OLD FISHING NETS AS SUNGLASS FRAMES

 

Costa Sunglasses, the leader in world-class performance sunglasses and the initiator of the growing Kick Plastic campaign, is helping to bring positive solutions to the growing issue of ocean plastic pollution through its new Untangled Collection--a collection of frames made entirely from recycled fishing nets.


The brand is partnering with Bureo, the pioneer in recycled fishnet products, to turn discarded fishing nets into quality sunglass frames.

The new collection will be available at retailers nationwide and online in late May.
