Sea2see, a leading pioneer in the switch to circularity in the optical industry, has further expanded its ‘Seastainable Sunglasses Collection’ for Spring/Summer 2023 with a wider choice of sports frames, designed for an extensive range of land and water sports. Produced in Italy in Sea2see’s signature material created from 100% upcycled marine plastic, the seven designs offer protective, wraparound constructions which are ultra-resistant and lightweight. Designed to suit the sports enthusiast who loves nature and is committed to protecting it for the future, the Sea2see “seastainable” models come in a range of sizes with adjustable temples that will provide a snug and comfortable fit around the head.

“We have expanded our offer of advanced sports frames in our signature material made from 100% upcycled marine plastic for Summer 2023…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 – and 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…”

François van den Abeele, Founder & CEO – Sea2see Eyewear

All Sea2see sports designs are fitted with UV 400 Cat 3 Italian polycarbonate polarized lenses.

All Sea2see frames are made in Italy. The 100% Upsea™ up-cycled marine plastic material is sourced and collected in Africa by the Sea2see Foundation, a Non-Profit set up by Founder, François van den Abeele. A waste collection of 350-400 tons a year is underway via the Foundation, of which approximately 300 tons is valuable and is upcycled for the Cradle to Cradle Gold Certified UPSEA™ PLAST material used to make the Sea2see frames and watches collections.
