Waterhaul are a social enterprise company based in Cornwall, England.
They intercept plastic from our oceans and transform it into high-quality, functional products for adventure and ‘symbols for change’.
“Waste is simply a misallocated resource” – we value ocean plastic as unique material which tells a story.
Every year at least 640,000 tonnes of fishing nets are lost or discarded in the ocean. Samples of plastic waste accumulating in our oceanic gyres reveal 46% of this plastic, 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. In a phenomenon known as ‘ghost fishing’, the entangled carcasses of trapped marine life will attract more species, resulting in further potential entanglements. As these discarded nets are produced from plastic, they will not degrade, persisting in the ocean to catch and kill marine life indefinitely.
Crantock sunglasses are our summer champion. Effortlessly combining high performance, Italian made lenses with a care for our common home; These recycled sunglasses have a midsized frame to suit a range of face shapes and they even come with a free magnetic fold-flat case, made from sustainably sourced cork.
These rounder smaller framed sunglasses are, cute, sustainable and bang on trend. The Waterhaul Harlyn is made from 100% recycled fishing nets from Cornwall. The frame takes on it’s aqua seaglass appearance entirely from the original pigments in the recycled material.
