The Ocean Cleanup / Sunglasses

The Ocean Cleanup
The Ocean Cleanup

We were committed to delivering value to this discarded plastic by turning it into something you never want to lose. The Ocean Cleanup started by tracking and auditing the plastic the moment it left the ocean. By following the process laid out in the public standard developed by DNV GL, the plastic in the frames can be traced all the way back to the Great Pacific Garbage Patch and you can be assured that the plastic in your sunglasses is that same plastic we removed from the patch in 2019. Through an independent laboratory, The Ocean Cleanup also conducted extensive tests to ensure that the material is safe to use for sunglasses.
