Costa: born on the water, made to protect it

Costa: born on the water, made to protect it

Costa was born on the water. The brand was created by a group of fishermen who spent their days exploring the globe through rivers, seas and oceans. Inspired by this precious element, Costa created sunglasses with a specific purpose: to protect the water environment and to inspire others to do the same.


This is why Costa has a long term partnership with Ocearch: a team of scientists and explorers that conduct ocean research expeditions to gather critical data to save sharks and the oceans where they live. Great White Sharks, and Tiger Sharks are apex predators that help keep ocean's ecosystems balanced. Protecting sharks means protecting oceans.

Each purchase from the new COSTA + OCEARCH collection helps fund shark research expeditions. Great White Sharks and Tiger Sharks are symbols of the collection so they appear on sunglasses, shirts, hats, and kids clothes.

Safeguarding the marine ecosystem also depends on the impact that human activities have on water. Every year, an estimated 640,000 tons of discarded fishing nets pollute oceans. This is one of the dangerous form of ocean plastic pollution, so Costa joined forces with Bureo an organization who works with fishermen to prevent discarded nets from polluting our oceans and harming marine life.

Bureo has a 100% traceable supply chain from start to finish which makes it possible to recycle the nets down into a raw material in the form of pellets that are molded into the frames for the Untangled Collection sunglasses.

With its two classic models for men (Baffin and Pescador) and the two elegant design for women (Caldera and Victoria) every Untangled Collection purchase is a step towards untangling oceans.
