Ok ok, we know how idilic this sounds but it is the truth. Dick Moby's mission started on a surf trip in 2012 when we were confronted with the huge amounts of plastic waste in and around the ocean. As surfers and sailors they decided to address the plastic pollution in a positive way by making high quality sunglasses out of biodegradable and or recycled plastic. After exploring options with various suppliers and plastic producing companies they met with the Italian company Mazzucchelli that was able to produce high quality bio-degradable acetate for them, and early 2014 they selected an independent Italian manufacturer of handmade glasses.
