Sun­glasses made from fish­ing nets

BBC Wildlife Magazine - - Wild At Home -

WATERHAUL, £65 The sight of plas­tic con­tain­ers and fish­ing nets washed up along the shore demon­strates our im­pact on the planet. How­ever, one Corn­wall­based so­cial en­ter­prise has been retriev­ing this type of jet­sam and re­cy­cling it into sun­glasses. There are two styles avail­able: the Ky­nance ( below) and the squarer Fitzroy – both have po­larised glass lenses with UVA/UVB pro­tec­tion. The frames are light­weight yet ro­bust, with a com­fort­able fit and the en­tire prod­uct can be re­cy­cled via Waterhaul’s life­time war­ranty. You can also or­der pre­scrip­tion lenses through the web­site ( for an ad­di­tional £20). These trendy shades are one plas­tic item you wouldn’t be dis­mayed to see on a trip to the beach this sum­mer.
