The Untangled Collection. Made from recycled fishing nets.
Healthy oceans are a crucial part of our core mission at Costa. Every year, the amount of discarded fishing nets piling up in our ocean grows by an estimated 640,000 tons. So we’re joining forces with Bureo, a dedicated team working with fishermen to prevent used nets from polluting our oceans and harming marine life. By launching a line of sunglasses with frames made from recycled nets, we can all help #UntangleOurOceans.
Taking its name from the small coves of Chile, the fluid lines and feminine shape of Caleta make it the perfect frame for the waterwoman in all of us. Wide, keeper-ready temples help reduce light leak and add a bold bit of style out on the water. More importantly, Caleta is made from 97% recycled fishing nets for frames that perform as good as they make you feel while wearing them.
Named after the 1,500-mile Caribbean island chain, the Antille frame keeps its finger on the life pulse of the ocean. With a frame made from 97% recycled fishing nets, Antille is a great hybrid performance frame style with vented nose pads and additional coverage for your eyes, so they can spot the next island, reef or siesta spot, making it as good on the water as it is for it.
The Untangled frame style with the most coverage and “fishability” takes its name from Chile’s capital. Hooding and side shields help keep your eyes free from light leak and focused on the water. Keeper-ready temples and Hydrolite® rubber grips designed to keep you fishing no matter how rough it gets out there. And to ensure a future full of fish for our and future generations, Santiago is made from 97% recycled fishing nets. The other 3% is a performance additive that is designed to help you catch 100% of the fish you chase. Santiago is as good for fishing as it is for our oceans.
Pargo is the little brother to Santiago, but it doesn’t need any help when it comes to fighting fish. Also called the Dog Snapper for their giant canine teeth and nasty attitude, Pargo rules the reefs. This frame is made from 97% recycled fishing nets with 3% performance additive for increased durability and performance on the water. With hooding and side shields, keeper-ready temples and Hydrolite® rubber, Pargo shows it’s not the size of the dog in the fight but the size of the fight in the angler hooked up to the Dog Snapper.
