Sea2see Eyewear’s Positano 02 was a winner at the 2020 edition of the Optician Awards in the U.K. The frame beat six other shortlisted candidates. Founded by François van den Abeele, Sea2see operates in Italy with a “vertically integrated sustainable business model” and produces eyewear made of recycled ocean plastic. The company has farmed out the collection of its raw material to fishermen, providing them with a second revenue stream. Van den Abeele sees his employees as “eco-disruptors in the optical industry with a product that has the same quality as any non-recycled product, proving that the circular economy and the use of 100% recycled raw material for an entire collection is totally possible in this industry dominated by virgin plastic.” Sea2see’s distributor in the U.K. is Henry Beaumont Eyewear.
