01. Plastic Cleanup

The plastic cleanup program is our way of offsetting our material consumption during production.
We want to ensure that even though we create plastic waste, we are recycling more material than we generate.

THE REVIVALS

Super sustainable sunglasses.

Our Freshwater Revivals and Saltwater Revivals sunglasses marked the beginning of our ongoing journey to design and build sustainable, durable and best-in-class eyewear.

Recycled fishing nets are fused into a highly durable and resistant nylon 6 polyamide.

TACKLING CLIMATE CHANGE

The Malizia.

10 mangroves planted for every pair sold.

Approximately 1/3 of the world’s mangrove stocks have been destroyed over the last 40 years. We are proud to be doing our part to support the Malizia Mangrove Park. On a mission to plant 2 million mangrove plants, they are helping to conserve some of our most vulnerable marine and coastal environments.
