Norton Point Sunglasses are Made with Plastic Recovered from the Ocean

Norton Point is a sunglasses company with a purpose beyond style alone. Not only does the Martha's Vineyard-based company provide fashionable frames, but those frames are made with plastic recycled from the ocean, reducing waste and cleaning up the Earth's valuable natural resource.

It shouldn't come as news that the world's oceans are filling with plastic from human waste. According to Norton Point, there are 8 million metric tonnes of plastic flowing into the oceans, and this plastic takes millennia to decompose. Rather than leaving that problem be, Norton Point is committed to making a difference.

Norton Point sunglasses are themselves made from recycled high-density polyethylene ocean plastics, but the company has also promised to clean up one extra pound of plastic for every product it sells.
