ICAST 2021 Costa Glasses Made from Old Fishing Nets

Costa Untangled Collection: “Sustainability Meets Performance”

Did you know that every year, the amount of discarded fishing nets and gear littering our oceans grows by an estimated 640,000 tons? That’s approximately 1,700 tons a day, or nearly 1 ton every minute. Discarded fishing nets are the most harmful form of plastic pollution in our oceans. Working hand in hand with its partner Bureo, Costa is taking discarded fishing nets and giving them a new life. The new collection adds four performance frames to Costa’s existing Untangled Collection, which was originally launched in 2018.
The new, more durable NetPlus material – 97% recycled fishing nets and 3% performance additive – allows Costa to build sunglasses with maximum coverage and protection – performance features that fishermen need for long days on the water.

For more than 38 years, Costa Sunglasses has prioritized protecting the watery world it calls home. Continuing to put its mission into action by building products with purpose, Costa is announcing the next generation of its Untangled Collection, four new sunglasses built from recycled fishing nets and other sustainable materials like recycled aluminum logos and mineral glass lenses. Discarded fishing nets are the most harmful form of plastic pollution in our oceans. Working hand in hand with its partner Bureo, Costa is taking discarded fishing nets and giving them a new life in its collection of core performance frames. Ever since the original Untangled Collection of lifestyle frames debuted in 2018, Costa has been working to advance the recycling and molding techniques to build frames that are better suited for its core angling community. The new frames have a 100% traceable supply chain and are built from a more durable NetPlus material that is 97% recycled fishing nets and 3% performance additive. The combination allows Costa to build sunglasses with maximum coverage and protection—performance features that fishermen need for long days on the water. Learn more at Costa Del Mar
