The Ocean Cleanup Sunglasses
MADE TO CLEAN
As a non-profit, all proceeds go to funding our cleanup – turning the pollution of yesterday into the cleanup of tomorrow.
FROM THE OCEAN
Every step of the journey - from pollution to product - is tracked and audited by DNV GL to certify that the plastic is truly from the patch.
JOINING THE MISSION
By getting the sunglasses, supporters had a tangible way to contribute. Together we raised funds for 500,000 football fields worth of ocean cleaning.
Our sunglasses were made from plastic we removed from the Great Pacific Garbage Patch during our operations in 2019. Designed in California by Yves Béhar and made in Italy by Safilo – they offered a very stylish way for supporters to help rid the oceans of plastic. And, should the time come, they were designed to be easily recycled.
MADE TO CLEAN
100% of the proceeds from the sales of these sunglasses will go directly to continued cleanup operations. When we return to the patch, because of your support, we estimate that we can clean an area equivalent to 24 football fields of the Great Pacific Garbage Patch from the proceeds of just one pair of sunglasses. If we sell every pair, that means we could clean half a million football fields worth of ocean.
FROM THE OCEAN
From the ocean to landing in your hands, we want to give you transparency in our process. We caught our first plastic in the Great Pacific Garbage Patch in 2019 and we tracked and traced the entire process, which was audited by independent certification body, DNV GL. We have also carbon compensated for fuel emissions during the offshore campaign.
Now, by supporting our mission, you can give this plastic a second chance and help turn a problem into a solution.

Other ways to join
The sunglasses have been sold out since February 2022, and we have reached the goal of funding 500,000 football fields worth of ocean cleaning. As we go forward, we do not intend to make more products of our own, but partner with companies who will use our ocean plastic in their products.
