On the 1st of February, Costa was presented with the REI Root Award for its stunning Untangled Collection. The Root Award is presented every year at the annual Outdoor Retailer Snow Show in Denver, CO, to the brand with “the most responsibly designed, innovative new product” that REI carries.
The entire Untangled Collection is made from recycled fishing nets collected from fishermen in South America, the program also offers a program where they pay locals to bring in their used fishing nets in return for a cash reward. The entire collection is part of a Costa initiative to educate their customers on the importance of protecting and reducing our impact on the world’s oceans.
