Through Eyes on Circularity, our goal is to shift from fossil-based materials to bio-based materials, and embed eco-design in all our products by 2025.
We see a planet where nothing is waste and nothing is wasted. Where we move away from ‘take, make, waste’ and towards ‘research, reduce, reuse, recycle’. We see the circular way as the responsible way to do business.
Waste plays no part in our vision of the future. So we are taking steps to put an end to it following the 4Rs “Research-Reduce-Reuse-Recycle” approach.
We are moving our focus away from fossil-based materials and towards renewable sources - which produce fewer emissions, biodegrade, and are easier to recycle.
Costa is a brand that was made on the water and creates sunglasses with a specific purpose: to protect the water environment and to inspire others to do the same. Every year, an estimated 640,000 tons of discarded fishing nets pollute oceans, so Costa joined forces with Bureo, an organization that 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.
