The “Ocean Collection” is the world’s first and only line of sunglasses made of 100 percent recycled fishing nets. Designed in collaboration with Chilean eyewear company Karun, the sunglasses are made from nets collected by Net Positiva , a Chile-based fishnet collection and recycling program developed and operated by Bureo’s own team, according to ecouterre. “The majority of the population owns at least one pair of plastic sunglasses, none of which are made in a responsible way,” Bureo’s founders, Ben Kneppers, David Stover and Kevin Ahearn, told the website. “This new collection of sunglasses represents a major step forward in bringing awareness about ocean plastic pollution to the general public.

Since launching in the early 2000s, they now have more than 7,000 cigarette recycling bins in nine countries around the world, including the US, UK, and Australia, and people can also send their old cigarette butts in for free to have them recycled.
