Revolutionary SPY + Surfrider Foundation Helm Spurs Advancement of Enviro-minded Eyewear


SPY happily unveiled the "greenest" sunglass frame ever made--the SPY + Surfrider Foundation Helm--to partygoers on Earth Day at the Saloon in Encinitas, CA. Considered a breakthrough in enviro conscious products, SPY’s 100% biodegradable Plantate® sunglass frame took the floor as DJ Gabe Vega worked the crowd through their collective Coachella hangover--all coming together to show their passion for surfing and the common goal of environmental awareness.

With the aim of highlighting Surfrider Foundation's Rise Above Plastics campaign--while advancing the development of environmentally conscious eyewear built from sustainable sources--SPY + Surfrider Foundation's partnership is the first piece in SPY's new eco-friendly Recompose™ Collection.
