Eyewear brand, Sea2see, has expanded its collection of sustainable sunglasses with a range of frames designed for land and water sports.

The seven styles are available in wraparound designs which are ultra-resistant and lightweight, the brand said, and are available in a range of sizes with adjustable sides to provide a comfortable fit.

Made in Italy, the frames use Sea2see’s Upsea material, created from upcycled marine plastic, which is sourced and collected by the Sea2see Foundation, a non-profit established by the founder of the eyewear brand.

The sports design sunglasses are fitted with UV category-3 Italian polycarbonate polarised lenses.

Introducing the collection, the brand described the frames as “designed to suit the sports enthusiast who loves nature and is committed to protecting it for the future.”

The sunglasses are provided with a branded sustainable cork case, recycled PET cleaning pouch and recycled sugar cane external box.

François van den Abeele, founder and CEO of Sea2see Eyewear, said: “Having tried and tested our first models with sportsmen and women including the France SailGP Team, we have seen a demand for more sustainable products in this segment.

“Particularly products which are performance-oriented, with high-comfort features and real resistance, durability, lightness and flexibility, qualities that our industry-leading Cradle to Cradle Gold Certified UPSEA PLAST ‘seastainable’ marine plastic material offers without compromise,” he continued.

Sea2see is a B Corp Certified company, and is carbon negative. The company has offset carbon emissions since January 2021.
