Recycled ‘seastainable’ frames in fresh Spring-infused colours
The sustainable brand Sea2see continues in its plight to assist in reducing marine plastic pollution whilst creating eyewear with a stylish design, and an increasingly bold and beautiful palette of colours – to step into Spring. With over 250 individual frames in its collection and several new entries such as Volta and Verona, the Barcelona-based independent eyewear brand is shining the spotlight on the climate crisis like no other in optics. The frames are now available across the world in optical stores – and as far afield as Australia, New Zealand and Canada and the sunglasses are also available in their online boutique at www.sea2see.org.

Exceptional in the way they are created and stylish to wear, Sea2see’s latest sustainable frames offer extensive choice in shape and size for all faces, including new “petite” fit designs. Lightweight and detail-oriented to provide comfort and balanced design, the frames are characterized by timeless yet contemporary colour combinations and graduated and nature-inspired ‘ripple effect’ tones.
About Sea2see: Sea2see frames are made in Italy exclusively from 100% marine plastic waste collected by Sea2see. This waste is up-cycled into a reusable raw material in the form of pellets called UPSEA PLAST. The material is Cradle to Cradle Gold Certified and represents a first major sustainable development in ‘recycled” marine plastic eyewear, combining a quality finish with durability, lightness and ease of wear. The company is led by “sustainable” entrepreneur and nature lover, Francois van den Abeele. Find out more at www.sea2see.org Sea2see is now available globally through leading opticians. In the UK, the award-winning frames are available in selected independent opticians including Henry Smith + Hamylton Opticians – www.smithandhamylton.co.uk
