Ozeano sunglasses (which is pronounced "O-ze-a-no") are on a mission to make a difference. This mission was inspired after the founder was visiting Serendipity beach in Cambodia, and witnessed first hand the huge amount of plastic pollution and litter that was washed up on this beautiful idyllic beach.
Feeling obligated to do something then and there, he began picking up rubbish and cleaning the beach when a local man joined him and started helping. The local man suffered with cataracts and had very poor vision, but he wasn’t letting that stop him from helping clean up the beach.
After this experience the founder began contemplating on what can be done to help reduce the amount of waste gathering in oceans and making use of all that waste while helping those needlessly suffering from diseases that can be cured, that’s when the Ozeano concept was born.
The Ozeano vision is to fight pollution and provide treatment to those suffering from curable blindness and poor vision. Ozeano are passionate about working towards a sustainable future.
Ozeano uses eco-friendly sustainable materials in their products and state that with every pair of sunglasses sold they fund the cleaning of 12kg of plastic and litter from our oceans through the Seabin Project. Ozeano also donates 10% of each sale to The Fred Hollows Foundation, who are curing vision impairment all around the world making Ozeano are a brand that’s worth getting behind.
You can rest easy knowing that your pair of Ozeano sunglasses you just purchased are not only helping to clean our oceans but are also giving less fortunate people a better quality of life!

Don’t forget that every time you purchase a pair of Ozeano sunnies on Surf Zero you offset and remove 200kgs of carbon from our atmosphere, 1kg of plastic waste (approx 50 x 500ml plastic bottles) removed from ocean bound waterways and 3 trees are planted in reforestation projects around the world. That’s a massive impact from one purchase!
