Help the planet and its people
Today there's 18,000 pieces of plastic floating in every square kilometre of the ocean
Over 300,000 marine mammals die every year by ingesting plastic that's dumped in their waters
If we continue at the current rate, there will be more plastic than fish in our oceans by 2050
Care for the planet
Every sale of sunglasses = removal of 12kg of plastic & marine litter from our oceans and waterways, equivalent to over 900 plastic bottles, by donating to our partners, Seabin Project.
We’re incredibly conscious of the environmental impact of everything we do at Ozeano, and we’re determined to help turn the tide on the massive ocean pollution problem our planet is facing.
Today, an entire rubbish truck load of plastic ends up in the ocean every single minute, equating to a staggering 8 million tonnes over the course of a year. It’s estimated that there is now 18,000 pieces of plastic floating in every square kilometre of ocean, which is causing real harm to marine mammals and our ecosystem.
Over 200 different marine species have been found to ingest plastic, causing the death of over 300,000 marine mammals and over 400,000 sea birds every single year.
If things continue at this rate, it’s estimated that the amount of plastic entering our oceans could have doubled by 2025, with studies suggesting our oceans will contain more plastic than fish by 2050.
In order to address this issue, it requires a conscious effort by everyone to choose recycled plastics wherever possible. Across the world, only 11% of plastics are currently recycled, leading to virgin plastic production continuing to grow at a rapid rate.
By choosing Ozeano sunglasses, you’re funding the removal of these plastics and marine debris from our oceans and waterways, you're making a stance and letting the world know you’re a part of the solution, not the problem.
250 million people across the world are currently living with vision impairment
89% of people suffering live in low or middle income countries
Over 80% could have their vision impairment prevented or cured
Help people in need
With every purchase you make, 10% of the sale is donated to supporting The Fred Hollows Foundation's work in over 25 countries around the world.
Currently, there are 253 million people worldwide who live with vision impairment, 36 million of which are blind and 217 million who are suffering with moderate to severe vision impairment. Of those 253 million people, around 89% live in low and middle-income countries.
The crazy thing is, over 80% of vision impairment suffered by those 253 million people across the globe can be completely prevented or cured, given access to the basic eye care many take for granted.
Wearing Ozeano isn’t just about style, by choosing to make a purchase you’re buying in to our vision of a brighter, more just and fair future for the world.
You’re changing someone’s life - giving them the gift of vision.
