The 2.0 Collection, debuting for the first time at ICAST 2021, is built from recycled fishing nets and other sustainable materials like recycled aluminum logos and mineral glass lenses. Discarded fishing nets are the most harmful form of plastic pollution in our oceans. Working hand in hand with its partner Bureo, Costa is taking discarded fishing nets and giving them a new life in its collection of core performance frames.
In addition to the added features, the updated NetPlus material is available in three new colors – dark grey, plum and light grey. One of the new frames, Santiago [named after Chile’s capital], offers a protective, maximum coverage frame specifically designed for fishermen. Hooding and side shields prevent light from leaking, keeper-ready temples and Hydrolite rubber grips keep your frames locked in place, and the vented nose pad helps reduce fogging.
