Recycled Oakley sunglasses such as the Bob Burnquist recycled Fuel Cell sunglasses not only look totally bad-ass they also play a role in preserving the mother nature's valuable resources for future generations! In-fact these recycled Oakley sunglasses are produced from excess materials that come from the manufacturing processes of other Oakley eyewear. The eco-conscious design of the Bob Burnquist recycled Fuel Cell sunglasses also utilize bamboo for the icon accent inserts and the included storage bag as well. Buy a pair of these bad-boys and a portion of the proceeds from the sale will go to help fund the Action Sports Environmental Coalition (ASEC), an organization co-founded by Bob in 2001.
So who's Bob Burnquist? Well, anyone who's been a fan of skateboarding in the past 20 years certainly knows!
