OUR STORY
THE SHORT VERSION
FROM SIHANOUKVILLE TO SYDNEY
Driven by a desire to make a difference
Ozeano is more than just eyewear, it's a global family bound by a love for experiencing the natural world and a deep passion for protecting it. We started out as two travellers left horrified by the sight of a heavily littered beach in Sihanoukville, Cambodia, and our desire to make a difference led to the forming of an environmentally-friendly eyewear brand headquartered on the east coast of Sydney, Australia. Our core objective is to encourage people to see the natural world, whilst ensuring we help to protect its future. We seek to achieve that with our unwavering commitment to provide the highest natural quality eyewear, with the lowest environmental impact.

Over 80% of the Western population wear sunglasses, yet traditional plastic frames take upwards of 450 years to decompose. That's hundreds of millions of virgin plastic sunglasses that are discarded in to our ecosystem and contributing to the pollution problem our planet is facing. We're here to offer an alternative. All Ozeano sunglasses are inspired by (and named after) the beauty of the natural world, are designed in Australia and ethically handmade using a 100% biodegradable plant-based bio-acetate in our ISO9001, ISO14001 and SA8000-certified facility. All accessories are either 100% GOTS-certified organic cotton or FSC-certified Portuguese cork, and all our products are PETA-approved vegan. Our shipping is carbon-neutral, and courier packaging is 100% biodegradable.

With every sale, we fund the removal of 6kg of marine litter from our oceans and waterways (equivalent to over 500 plastic bottles). We're proud to be a certified B-corp and gold-standard members of the '1% for the planet' organisation, and our circular economy offering means you can return sunglasses at any time to receive 25% off your next purchase, ensuring our products never go to waste.

That's where we are today. We don't claim to be perfect, and are constantly evolving in pursuit of finding better ways in everything that we do.

Ozeano's ability to make a difference is only made possible by your support, and for that, no words could possibly portray our gratitude to you.

Thank you for visiting, and we look forward to welcoming you to the family!

Ozeano ~ Experience nature, protect its future.
