We’re excited to share with you our latest project and limited-edition frame launch in collaboration with SeaTrees; the Blue Carbon range!
We’ve redesigned our 100% recycled fishing net Crantock & Kynance frames with a dash of colour; visually representing ‘Blue Carbon’ with a unique, matte blue-grey colouration to draw attention to our ocean’s role at removing carbon from our atmosphere.
Each pair of Blue Carbon sunglasses sold will plant FIVE mangrove trees at the restoration site in Pulau Biak, West Papua, Indonesia; supporting both the local ecosystem and communities.
Blue Carbon Recycled Sunglasses
We've teamed up with SeaTrees to help restore Mangrove Ecosystems in Indonesia.
SeaTrees protect and restore coastal ecosystems and support local communities across the world. Operating in coastal communities in countries such as Kenya, Indonesia and Mexico, SeaTrees are making positive impacts in the environments that need help the most. These coastal environments are rich in what's called "Blue Carbon"; Carbon stored in Marine and Coastal Ecosystems.
SeaTrees have been working with Eden Reforestation projects to restore the once decimated Mangrove Forests in the Biak Island Region in Indonesia, and are set to have planted 700,000 Mangrove Trees by the end of the year.
Why support this cause?
Preventing erosion and providing marine habitat.
Mangrove forests create critical habitats for threatened marine species, whilst also protecting the island from storm surges and rising sea-levels.
This project provides long-term employment for the local community. This in turn drives other sustainable development benefits produced by the project.
Mangrove trees sequester carbon in one of the most efficient ways possible. In fact, mangrove forests are 5x more effective at storing carbon than tropical forests.
EVERY PRODUCT HAS A DIRECT IMPACT
Each pair of sunglasses sold directly enables the expansion of our ghost gear recovery and recycling efforts by creating a demand for plastic to be removed from the ocean.
You'll also be supporting the delivery of PlaNET Action, our unique education program. We deliver workshops across the UK, with our portable ocean plastic recycling machines and our marine biologist educators deployed to engage and inspire the next-generation to understand the marine environment, why we should protect it, and to encourage innovative thinking.

I bought a pair of Waterhaul sunglasses for my partner and she absolutely loved them. When she learn't that they were made from recycled fishing nets I think she fell in love with them just that little bit more. We were both really pleased with the quality of the sunglasses, they are really well made and feel like they are going to last a long time. Infact, I liked them so much, I've since bought a pair for myself too!
I was introduced to these sunglasses by a fiend who had purchased a pair a few months earlier. When I asked her about them she had nothing but good things to say. They way they are made from ghost nets is remarkable, they fit my face perfectly and no compromise has been made on quality at any point. The lifetime warranty on the frames is also most reassuring and I'm really pleased with my purchase.
It took a lot of online research for me to finally decide on Waterhaul sunglasses. I really love the ethos of the company, the fact that purchasing my sunglasses gave me a warm fuzzy feeling that I wasn't adding to the plastic problem, I was actively participating in recycling nets that would otherwise still be floating around in the oceans harming wildlife. Delivery was really quick and they are great quality.
Firstly let me say that my Waterhaul sunglasses look great! They arrived quickly, beautifully wrapped in a cork sunglasses case and they seem really sturdy and well made. Being made from 100% recycled fishing nets is win in the fight to reduce ocean plastics too!
I've owned a fair few pairs of sunglasses over the years and the Harlyn Aqua ones I currently own are right up there amongst my favourite. I absolutely love the colour, they are well made and I have high hopes that Waterhaul will continue to innovate and look after our oceans.
Whenever I tell somebody that my sunglasses are made from recycled fishing nets nobody believes me until they check out Waterhaul for themselves. Amazing sunglasses, a good cause and great service makes me one happy customer inded.
