Style-up your lockdown wardrobe with new limited-edition WDC sunglasses

Sunglasses promo pic 2

WDC is excited to partner with Swedish brand, CHPO, on a pair of limited-edition sunglasses.

Named RISSO after the unique and beautiful Risso’s Dolphin, these limited-edition sunglasses are perfect for your summer look and 100% of the profits will be donated to WDC to help protect whales and dolphins across the globe. The WDC RISSO sunglasses are sure to turn heads and keep you looking cool with their reflective blue lenses and grey frames – designed to mirror the grey Risso’s dolphin in the deep blue ocean.

As well as raising money to help keep whales and dolphins safe and free, these fin-tastic sunglasses are also made from 100% recycled plastic! Plastic pollution is a huge threat for whales and dolphins who often mistake floating pieces of plastic as food. With more and more whales and dolphins washing up on beaches with stomachs full of plastic, buying and using recycled plastic will help reduce the amount being thrown away and ending up in the ocean.  To find out more about WDC’s work on tackling ocean plastic and other types of ocean pollution, click here.

CHPO has been making watches and sunglasses since 2013. Inspired by skateboarding, music and art, CHPO has a strong ethos in sustainability with a view that all their gear can be worn by everyone, everywhere.

Swim on over to CHPO’s website now to buy your pair.
