FROM THE CANALS AND COASTLINES OF HAITI WE TRANSFORM PLASTIC INTO SUSTAINABLE AND SOCIALLY CONSCIOUS EYEWEAR.

WE LOVE THE OCEAN

Sunglasses made from recovered HDPE in Haiti

Norton Point is an eyewear brand based on the island of Martha's Vineyard, MA. We believe that the 8 million metric tons of plastic flowing into our oceans is one of our planet's greatest environmental challenges and we have chosen to become part of the solution.

We have developed the first line of eyewear made from recovered high-density-polyethylene (HDPE) ocean plastics. HDPE is a consumer plastic used in millions of products around the world and is one of the most common plastics you will find today.

For every product we sell we are committing to you to clean-up one pound of plastic from the ocean. We have also chosen to give back 5% of net profits to global clean-up, education, and remediation practices.

PARTNERS

Putting a dent in ocean plastic isn’t something that can be done alone. It’s a complicated global problem with many moving parts. That’s why we are excited to have exclusive eyewear partnerships with the Ocean Conservancy and the Plastic Bank who are passionately championing the fight against ocean plastics.

The Ocean Conservancy is the leading ocean non-profit focused on plastic pollution and marine debris. For more than 30 years they have been cleaning up our coastlines through the International Coastal Cleanup ( ICC ) and more recently the Trash Free Seas Alliance®.

The Plastic Bank is doing amazing work on the ground in Haiti. Through their network of collection facilities they are working to stem the flow of plastic into the ocean and provide a better life for local collectors. The Plastic Bank has created the concept of Social Plastic® to ensure that local collectors in Haiti are paid a living wage for the plastic they collect.
