Oakley’s eco-friendly shades

Oakley has recently come out with sunglasses that not only look good, but are good to the environment! Bob Burnquist Signature Series Recycled Gascan®  are appropriately named after Bob Burnquist who is best known for his professional skateboarding career, but who also has a true passion for the environment and an altruistic style of living. Burnquist has been a longtime proponent of “green” initiatives and environmental protection. To show their support of Burnquist’s efforts, Oakley has created a pair of eyewear that truly fits the man behind the namesake.


The frame of these eco-friendly shades is made from excess materials produced from the manufacture of other eyewear and the design utilizes 100% certified organic bamboo for the icon accents and the included storage bag. To get even “greener”, Oakley made the packaging for the shades from recycled materials and utilized eco-friendly inks.
A portion of the proceeds from sales of the Bob Burnquist Gascan® sunglasses will go to the Action Sports Environmental Coalition (ASEC), an organization co-founded by Bob in 2001. With the assistance of athletes and companies, ASEC works to educate the public about environmental responsibility and preservation.
