Though summer is well and truly in the process of fizzling out here in the UK, there are still places in the world where it’s sunny and sunglasses will be in requirement and it is for that reason that we point your attention to this fantastic Kickstarter project from Bureo Skateboards which is a series of sunglasses called the Ocean Collection which are made from recycled fishing nets.
The Ocean Collection Sunglasses from Bureo is a very admirable project as the objective is to prevent unwanted fishing nets ending up in the ocean and damaging the fragile ecosystem therein by crafting these nets into the stylish looking sunglasses that you see before you.
This premium series of eyewear comes with three unique frames (each using fishing nets as their core component) and each pair is designed and sourced in Chile, with all the frames being made in Italy. Take a look at a few more shots of these spiffing sunglasses from Bureo below:
The fact that the whole reason for being from the sunglasses is to help to preserve our oceans is a most admirable one indeed and one that we fully support here at Coolector HQ – the fact that the sunglasses in the Ocean Collection just happen to look great as well is the icing on the cake.
Designs that are inspired by nature coupled with polarised Carl Zeiss lenses for impeccable protection from the sun, there really is nothing not to like with these sunglasses from Bureo and if you want to help play your part in protecting the oceans, there is still plenty of time to show your support on Kickstarter.
