The 4Ocean Bracelet | Mangroves Marine Nursery Bracelet Limited Edition
If all rivers lead to the ocean, estuaries are where those waters meet. Estuaries are found in every climate at every latitude, anywhere fresh water meets the ocean...at the end of rivers in coastal plains, much like the Chesapeake Bay; in fjords, for which Norway, Greenland, and New Zealand are known; around sandbars, like the North Carolina Outer Banks, and in tectonic areas like the San Francisco Bay.
Mangroves are an especially crucial part of the marine ecosystem in tropical and subtropical estuaries, serving as nurseries for baby sea animals. The largest mangroves forests can be found in Indonesia, Brazil, Australia, Nigeria, and Mexico. They also call the tidal coasts of South Florida home. While they’re one of the most productive ecosystems in the world, mangrove forests also are one of the most threatened. Unless we take drastic and immediate action to protect and restore mangroves, it’s estimated that we’ll lose these critical ecosystems by 2100.
The world would be a very different place without mangroves and estuaries. To help protect these important ecosystems from the effects of ocean pollution, 4Ocean has captains and crews cleaning the ocean and coastlines, including mangrove forests, seven days a week. By purchasing the Limited Edition Marine Nursery Bracelet, you’ll pull a pound of trash while helping protect and restore the mangrove forests and estuaries that many baby sea animals call home.

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.
