Parley for the Oceans turns waste plastic into sunglasses to fund ocean clean-up

Parley corona sunglasses hero 852x479

Via Dezeen

A collection of limited-edition sunglasses are the first product to be launched as part of a new fundraising platform that seeks to recycle plastic from the ocean into consumer products.

The platform, called Clean Waves, has been set up by beer brand Corona and marine organisation Parley for the Oceans, which has previously created footwear and swimwear made from ocean plastic in collaboration with Adidas.

The Clean Waves project is aimed at boosting the use of eco innovative materials in fashion and industrial design.

The first Clean Waves product to be launched is a pair of sunglasses made in Italy from the plastic that Parley for the Oceans and Corona harvest from the oceans and beaches they protect.
