Why we love Waterhaul

These glasses are amazing and robust! Polarised lenses and 100% reclaimed nets on the frames

What we love most though is that this team spend most of their time out there collecting their raw materials from the ocean, they are conservationists first. Check out their story here

Waterhaul is a social enterprise based in Newquay, Cornwall.

We utilise the strongest form of plastic in our oceans to produce exceptionally sustainable, recycled eyewear that meets the technical demands of adventure, ocean-exposure and UV protection, but also act as ‘symbols of change’ for our oceans.  Waterhaul sunglasses frames are guaranteed to last you a lifetime, because they are made from nets that would last decades in the ocean. 

Every year 640,000 tonnes of fishing nets are lost or discarded in the ocean.

46% of the plastic in our ocean gyres, by weight, is attributable to fishing gear.

Fishing related debris are particularly harmful in our oceans due to their tendency to entangle marine life and damage seabed habitats, such as kelp beds and coral reefs. . As these discarded nets are produced from plastic, they will not degrade, persisting in the ocean to catch and kill marine life indefinitely.

Waterhaul’s mission is to remove this w̶a̶s̶t̶e̶ resource from our ocean and coastline, divert waste nets from landfilling, expand recycling capacity and demonstrate solutions to this threat to our ocean. 

Through mechanical recycling and a specialised injection moulding process, our end product is a high-performance, 100% recycled sunglasses frame, embracing the ultimate in sustainability and product stewardship.

Our eyewear range is produced from 100% recycled fishing nets and paired with recyclable mineral glass optics, and each pair directly contributes to the removal of ghost gear and other marine plastics. Waterhaul frames are guaranteed for life, with returned frames shredded and put straight back into the recycling loo

Susainable cork case

Each pair includes a free magnetic fold-flat hard case made from sustainable cork.

Look great, feel solid

Love the build of these glasses, not too heavy but enough to feel like they won't fall apart.
