"Sea Plastic Differently"

Norton Point came out of an idea by co-founder Ryan Schoenike to create eyewear that utilized recycled plastic waste; after initially struggling to find a way to source that recycled material, they came across Plastic Bank and forged a partnership. The startup launched its "Sea Plastic Differently" line of sunglasses on World Ocean Day, June 8, and is partnering with the Ocean Conservancy for education and outreach. Norton Point pledges to invest 5 percent of its proceeds into education,cleanup and remediation activities, and proclaims that for each pair of sunglasses purchased, it will clean up one pound of ocean plastic.
