The 4Ocean Bracelet | Earth Day Limited Edition
Every single minute the equivalent of one dump truck full of plastic enters the ocean! That is more than 8 million tons annually and there is no sign that number is going to slow down any time soon. By 2050, it is estimated that there will be more pieces of plastic in the ocean than fish! That is a very scary thought to us here at 4Ocean, so we have made it our mission to help stem this tide of pollution by removing plastic, trash and debris from the ocean and coastlines every single day.
For the month of April, to help increase the size of our impact globally, 4Ocean has partnered with the Earth Day Network to raise awareness of this growing problem and to help combat the issue first hand through our cleanups. The Earth Day Network is responsible for coordinating the observance of Earth Day in over 192 countries around the world and spearheads many amazing campaigns throughout the year to promote, diversify, educate and activate the environmental movement worldwide.
Not only will we be removing plastic from the ocean in support of Earth Day Network’s End Plastic Pollution campaign for Earth Day 2018, 4Ocean is also supporting their Canopy Project which has the overall goal of planting 7.8 billion trees by the year 2020 to help combat the worst effects of global climate change. This goal coincides with the 50th Anniversary of Earth Day and represents one tree planted for every person on the planet! So, for each Limited Edition Earth Day Bracelet we sell, not only will 4Ocean remove one pound of trash from the ocean, but we will also support the planting of trees as part of the Canopy Project.

The 4Ocean Story:
The story began when two surfers and ocean enthusiasts, Alex and Andrew took a trip to Bali. After a day of surfing, they sat on the beach and took notice of many local fisherman going back out at night to fish in order to make money and feed their families. These locals would push their boats through alarming amounts of trash and return every morning with barely any fish. The problem of ocean trash and overfishing of the reef was something that resonated deeply with Alex and Andrew because of their love for the ocean. They became driven to think of a way to help solve the problem. Soon after, the idea of employing sea captains to ‘fish’ trash out of the ocean came to be. The two friends started 4Ocean by offering a 100% recycled bracelet for purchase that purposefully and proudly funds the removal of trash from our oceans and coastlines - one pound at a time.
4Ocean is now a global movement that allows anyone from anywhere to join the team and help in ocean trash removal efforts worldwide. With overwhelming response from supporters, they were able to successfully remove more than 250,000 pounds of trash from the ocean in their first year alone. This was only made possible by the continual purchase of our Original - Signature Blue 4Ocean Bracelet and four additional Limited Edition Bracelets released in 2017. They now have seven full-time sea captains working seven days a week - all year long. In 2017 they led beach and underwater cleanups in 16 different countries all over the world and continued their mission to clean the world’s oceans and build a more sustainable future.
