Boasting durable, bio-based resin construction derived from plant material, three new sunglass frames — Rafael, Motu and Trevally — put Costa's Kick Plastic campaign into action. The manufacturing process, which reduces emissions by 40 percent, significantly cuts Costa's carbon footprint. All three frames carry the full array of Costa's patented 580 lenses (polycarbonate or glass), designed to filter out yellow and ultraviolet blue light, enhancing reds, blues and greens for improved visual clarity and sharpness. Available in six colors and in prescription lenses. $249; costadelmar.com
