GOGGLESOC, SUSTAINABLE IN THEIR ROOTS
gogglesoc, a Whistler-based company, has been a partner of Protect Our Winters since 2017 and each year, they produce a beautiful design to support POW by raising awareness on our mission and raising extra funds.
Did you know that gogglesocs are made of post-consumer recycled plastic bottles? At gogglesoc, they try to reduce their ecological footprint as much as possible. This is why they make all eyewear accessories out of rPET, a fabric made from recycled plastic bottles.
They recognise they can't change the world alone, but by making gogglesocs from recycled plastic bottles they are doing their part to conserve our resources and keep waste out of our landfills.
Check out the rPet process below!
They didn't stop at making their eyewear accessories out of upcycled materials - their premium displays are made out of recycled chopsticks! 90,000 chopsticks are thrown away every day in Vancouver alone. That’s why they’ve engineered one-of-a-kind merchandise displays out of recycled chopsticks! Each display recycles hundreds of chopsticks and for the bigger displays, thousands of chopsticks! To date, they’ve recycled over 2.8 million of chopsticks and turned them into their product displays.
1% For The Planet Member
gogglesoc is also a proud member of 1% for the planet, a global movement that redistributes profits from responsible businesses to environmental nonprofits to create a healthier planet. As a 1% for the planet nonprofit member, POW Canada benefits from this program and brands like gogglesoc are giving back 1% of their total revenue to environmental nonprofits like POW to support our work!

At gogglesoc, they strongly believe that it's good to be green. That's why they’ve been supporting Protect Our Winters since 2017. gogglesoc supports the POW movement, having donated over $100K in cash and in-kind products to support the cause. And we're stoked that the POW gogglesoc has been one of the most popular items on their e-commerce store!
