    The Ocean Cleanup

The Ocean Cleanup has been doing the imperative for the health of our oceans by developing new and advanced technologies to rid the world’s oceans of plastic, but they aren’t stopping there: they are also recycling the collected trash and repurposing it into something new, beautiful, and useful. Through our collective passion and love for the ocean and a deep sense of responsibility to do our part as entrepreneurs and designers, fuseproject and The Ocean Cleanup collaborated to develop a sunglass design made directly from Pacific Ocean plastics using Boyan Slat’s innovative retrieval system.
