Waterhaul Pentire Sunglasses




These Waterhaul Pentire Sunglasses are made from the strongest form of waste plastic found in our oceans. Nets that would last decades floating around in the sea have been recycled and repurposed to make hard-wearing, exceptionally designed sustainable eyewear that should last a lifetime.

The Pentire model has a matte slate grey finish that suggests the materials’ original form as ocean plastic. They come with grey polarised mineral glass lenses that give you UVA/UVB 400 protection.

The rectangular frame is unisex and best suits medium – large faces and face shapes of all kinds.


About Waterhaul:


Waterhaul was founded in 2018. After many recycling trials, they produced their first pair of sunglasses made from abandoned fishing gear.

They collect lost fishing nets and lines from across the coastline of Cornwall. This “Ghost Gear” (any fishing gear that has been abandoned, lost or otherwise discarded in our oceans) is utilised and separated into polymer types. They then recycle it through a mechanical process of shredding, washing and agglomeration.

The 100% recycled raw material is injected into moulds to form the sunglasses frames. A family-run business does this process in Northern Italy.

Recycled plastic lenses don’t exist. Waterhaul uses mineral glass lenses supplied by Barberini. These are one of the world’s best-quality optical lens producers. Furthermore, polarised chemically hardened lenses are substantially more scratch resistant than other lenses.

Vigorously tested, these sunglasses are designed to be durable.

Waterhaul implements sustainable practices throughout the process. From recycling waste materials to offsetting their carbon footprint by donating to mangrove reforestation projects.

We have recently been awarded a Certificate Of Positive Ocean Impact, by Waterhaul, as every order placed with them has removed fishing gear from our oceans and funded ongoing recoveries. In 2023, 0.55kg of ghost gear was removed from the sea and a further 16.5kg of discards are to be recovered in 2024, due to the purchases Cornish Gems shop made through Waterhaul.
