FOR OUT THERE℠ is our Commitment to Ocean Cleanup and Conservation


Ola Means Alive is deeply committed to the cause of ocean cleanup and conservation, as well as making eco-ethical sunglasses that meet the needs of our customers on the water. 

Our Luxx™ lenses are polarized, UV400, and made of a plant-based cellulose.

Our frames are made from reclaimed and recycled wood certified by the Forestry Stewardship Council.   brandlogo-bug.png

We donate a portion of our profits to organizations helping to preserve, protect, and restore ocean habitats.  Your purchases have helped support the following organizations:


Sea Change Project - Motivating scientists, policymakers and individuals to engage meaningfully with nature and protect our oceans.


Sanibel-Captiva Conservation Foundation - SCCF is dedicated to the conservation of coastal habitats and aquatic resources on Sanibel and Captiva and in the surrounding watershed.
