The Florida-based manufacturer returned home from last week’s Outdoor Retailer Winter Show in Denver, Colorado, with the first-ever Innovation Award for the new Baffin frame from its The Untangled Collection.The win follows previous successes at the ICAST, EFTTEX and AFTA shows.
The awards, presented by Capitol One Spark Business and A+E Networks®, recognises products in areas of design, innovation and achievement within the outdoor industry. The Untangled Collection is made from recycled fishing nets and was one of 12 winners.
“Innovation has always been at the core of our industry and is driven by the desire to make the outdoor experience more joyful and to encourage others to participate,” said Marisa Nicholson, Outdoor Retailer Vice President and Show Director. “The 12 winners took that inspiration and created something that can transform an outdoor experience and improve our relationship with the environment.”
Holly Rush, Costa Sunglasses CEO, said: “We are truly honoured to receive this year’s Innovation Award. The opportunity to create a collection of products that so closely ties to our broader mission of protecting our oceans and waterways, while raising awareness of plastic pollution and giving our consumers the opportunity to be part of the solution, has been such a rewarding experience for the Costa team.”
