Expansion of programme for collection of marine plastic

What's on in Europe
June 09, 2020

Sustainable label Sea2see Eyewear has announced further international expansion of its programme for the collection of marine plastic in Ghana and Senegal.  Following collection of the waste material, Sea2see separates what it can use for the production of eyewear and the rest is sold off to other companies to be recycled for use in different processes. Thanks to a social enterprise initiative that the brand has made possible in West Africa, fishermen who collaborate in the project have access to a new source of income for the plastic they collect, while also taking part in an activity with an immediate positive impact on the environment. The Sea2see brand first started its operations to harvest discarded plastic waste through agreements with port authorities in Catalonia (Spain) in 2016 and expanded the activity soon after in France. The new operations in West Africa represent a step forward for the optical brand which has committed to taking environmental action to clean the sea as part of its program of positive sustainable activities. Today, Sea2see’s Italian-made eyewear range comprises over 135 sunglasses and optical frames – sold in more than 3000 optical stores around the world. The frames are produced to high quality standards and the collection includes a range of fresh, comfortable modern eyewear shapes such as square frames, aviators and wayfarer style products.
