SPY + Surfrider Foundation Launch New Eco Collection of Sunglasses

June 24, 2013

SPY Teams Up With Surfrider Foundation To Rise Above Plastics. SPY is happily introducing the “greenest” sunglass frame ever made—the SPY + Surfrider Helm—as a part of its new eco-friendly Recompose Collection. With a shared passion for surfing and the common goal of environmental awareness, the SPY + Surfrider partnership aims to highlight Surfrider Foundation’s Rise Above Plastics campaign while advancing the development of environmentally conscious eyewear built from sustainable sources. Both frame and hinges made from 100% biodegradable Plantate™, an all-natural plant polysaccharide material, the SPY + Surfrider Helm is a breakthrough in environmentally mindful eyewear. Even the recycled packaging, organic cotton protective baggie, soy inks and cleaning cloth are all part of the ethos built into SPY’s new eco-friendly Recompose Collection.
