Sometimes you see a product that really makes you say, “wow, that s really impressive and cool.” Personally as someone who appreciates new innovative items and how they are marketed I can say I’m very excited for this. Traps Sunglasses come from John Turner, a young entrepreneur from Portland who already has tried his hand at the clothing industry with his first venture Louie and Clark. In the early part of 2014 he decided he wanted to make more of a difference. He introduced Traps. He wanted to create quality eyewear from repurposed coastal materials from Maine. The materials being old wooden lobster traps and sea plastic that would otherwise be hurting the environment. Who doesn’t want to be fashionable while also helping the coastal environment? But how good can glasses look made from these materials? Good, very good. Actually great.
Currently, ‘Traps’ are in the developmental stage and are planning for a summer release. The plan is to start a crowd funding campaign to help with the start up process of opening any new business in the month or so. This is a unique product that people not just from Maine can appreciate.
While this is happening John wants you to be involved. Follow them on social media and give your feedback. At least once a week there will be some sort of interactive question that allows you to voice your opinion on how you want these glasses to look and see the story from the very beginning!
Personally, I think this is one of the best ideas I’ve seen in years. Oh, and it doesn’t hurt that they look phenomenal. Head over to their website and check out what exactly ‘Traps’ is all about!
Enjoy your Thursday!
