SAILING EDITION
FOR SAILORS, BY SAILORS

SAILING EDITION <br/> FOR SAILORS, BY SAILORS

The launch of a newsailing edition high performance sunglasses, made with 100% recycled fishing nets and co-developed with professional sailors from the Volvo Ocean Race.

As the leading sailing race around the world, the Volvo Ocean Race has a truly unique perspective on the problems posed by plastics in our oceans. Eight million tonnes of plastic are dumped into the ocean every year, and according to one recent study, if no action is taken, there will be more plastic than fish in the ocean by 2050.

Like the Volvo Ocean Race, in Karün we strive to change the way we interact with our planet. With many others, we are helping to prove that it is possible for a business to create harmony with the natural environment.

 

In the spirit of the sustainability campaign of UN Environment's - Clean Seas, Turning the Tide on Plastic, these sunglasses embody a message of change.
We invite people to look at the world from a different point of view.

This Sailing Edition technical sunglasses are the outcome of an innovative and progressive design process, that involved renown sailors like Mark Towill, Charlie Enright or Martin Strömberg. The outcome is a high performance, sustainable and technical pair of sailing sunglasses, specially adapted for the tough conditions on the ocean.
