Norton Point Current Sunglasses
Premium shades made from recycled ocean plastic.
More than 8 million metric tons of plastic ends up in the ocean every year, inundating our beaches and leaving about $80 billion worth of plastic afloat, never to be used again. Norton Point saw this an opportunity to transform trash into premium sunglasses, while providing the world’s most at-risk populations well-paying jobs. Each pair features UVA- and UVB-blocking polarized lenses, stainless-steel 3-barrel hinges, and handmade cellulose acetate frames. Each purchase also Norton Point cleans one pound of plastic from the ocean, and they donate 5% of their net profits toward global cleanup, education, and remediation.
