Bureo launches glasses made from 100% traceable & recycled nylon nets
Surfersvillage Global Surf News, 30 March, 2016 – Bureo’s mission is to find solutions to the growing issue of ocean plastic pollution.Three young friends started the company with a grant from Patagonia and a skateboard made from recycled fishing nets.
This new collection of sunglasses represents a major step forward in bringing awareness about ocean plastic pollution to the general public. The majority of the population owns at least one pair of plastic sunglasses, none of which are made in a responsible way.
Designed in collaboration with Karun, a progressive Chilean eyewear company, Bureo’s Ocean Collection of sunglasses represents the world’s first glasses made from 100% traceable + recycled nylon nets. The frames are designed and sourced in Chile, then made in Italy with Carl Zeiss polarized lenses.
The Ocean Collection features three frames – the Yuco, Newen and Kayu. MSRP $139. The glasses will be sold in key retailers such as Pilgrim Surf + Supply in Brooklyn, NY, Sawyer Land & Sea Supply in Santa Cruz, Calif and Patagonia retail stores throughout the world.
