After announcing a collaboration with adidas and FC Barcelona member Marc Ter Stegen for an upcoming UltraBOOST Pack, Parley for the Oceans continues to advocate for sustainable manufacturing practices. Now, the environmental organization introduces a line of luxury sunglasses made from recycled ocean plastic. Crafted in Italy, the spectacles are made from plastic waste like polypropylene, along with upcycled debris collected from beaches. They will be available in three different colorways (White Flag, Coral Sand and Reef Camo) and limited to just 100 units for each edition. Every pair also comes with geographical coordinates that depict an area affected by marine pollution as a reminder of the ongoing initiative.

The glasses are just the beginning of Parley’s Clean Waves platform, which was launched in partnership with beer label Corona. The project aims to use more recycled materials in fashion and industrial design goods, including a new upcycling process that makes it easier to reuse plastics in the manufacturing process. Parley and Corona have also offered to add a new island to protect for every 100 pairs of sunglasses sold, with 100% of the proceeds going toward supporting the cause. Priced between $300-320 USD, the sunglasses will be available at Net-a-Porter with a waitlist to buy at Clean Waves.
