Bob Burnquist Signature Series Recycled GASCAN Sunglasses
Oakley skateboarder Bob Burnquist has long championed Green initiatives in environmental protection. To show support, Oakley is pleased to present this special edition Gascan eyewear. The frame is made from excess materials that come from the manufacture of other eyewear, and the eco-conscious design utilizes bamboo for the icon accents and included storage bag. We even made the packaging from recycled materials and soy-based ink. A portion of the proceeds from sales of the Bob Burnquist Gascan will go to the Action Sports Environmental Coalition (ASEC), an organization co-founded by Bob in 2001. With the help of athletes and companies, the organization takes a proactive approach to educate others about environmental responsibility. Oakley is honored to assist in these efforts.
“I am very excited to be part of the creation of this special eyewear piece,” said Bob Burnquist. â€œThe way Oakley has bridged the gap between technical innovation and a more Green route is quite an achievement.”
We are proud of this new sunglass, the first of what we hope will be numerous innovations created with Green initiatives in mind.Oakley VP of Sports Marketing Pat McIlvain states, “Bob has long been a source of inspiration to Oakley brand leadership and he brings a wealth of knowledge to the design table. It’s very exciting to see Oakley take this approach with our environment in mind.”
The opportunity to serve such a noble cause alongside Bob Burnquist is an honor, and Oakley is excited to play a role in preserving the Earth’s valuable resources for future generations. The frame is made from excess materials produced from the manufacture of other Oakley eyewear. The eco-conscious design utilizes 100% bamboo for the icon accents. Includes a storage bag made from 100% certified organic bamboo; a sustainable natural fiber that is 100% biodegradable. Packaging is constructed from recycled materials and printed with eco-friendly inks.
