Sea2see, The Eyewear made from Sea Plastic
by François van den Abeele on Aug 12, 2016
It’s been said that by 2050 oceans will have more plastic than fish and marine wildlife. Discarded fishing nets represent over 10% of all plastic marine pollution, and they are one of the main causes of ocean contamination and deaths.
For this reason, we created Sea2See, an elegant and sophisticated line of sunglasses made of fishing nets recovered from various ports in Spain, that would otherwise contribute to the contamination in our oceans.
We discovered a way to reduce marine pollution, by means of manufacturing a high value-added product from recycled plastic, fishing nets and other waste that pollutes the coasts of Spain. We recycle and transform these elements into premium sunglasses.
Our products are more than just sunglasses, they’re a statement of principles. Sea2See is creating awareness on the importance of protecting and preserving our oceans. Our sunglasses may not change the world, but the people who wear them will!
Para conseguir que nuestras gafas sean de alta calidad, nos hemos asociado con un productor de gafas de sol italiano. Y es que a pesar de que podríamos haber optado por otros productores de otros países más baratos, creíamos que tener la experiencia y la calidad italiana era imprescindible.
