CLOSED-LOOP PROGRAM

We’re currently developing a circular end-of-life plan for every 4ocean product. Our aim is to eliminate waste at the
end of our product lifecycle by taking back 4ocean products that our customers no longer use so they can be properly
recycled or transformed into new products. Once you’re done with your 4ocean product, please reach out to our
customer service team to receive a prepaid shipping label.

The 4ocean Closed-Loop Program is only available in the U.S. for now, but we plan to expand in the future.

PRODUCT STORY

Sea turtles could vanish but plastic won’t

Green sea turtle, Akumal Bay, Mexico

Loggerhead turtle trapped in an abandoned drift net, Mediterranean Sea

Removing a pound of trash from the ocean can literally be the difference between life or death for baby sea turtles.

Boris Tezak

Researcher

Florida Atlantic University® Marine Research Lab

It’s estimated that over half of all sea turtles have ingested some form of plastic in their lifetime. When plastic is in the water where sea turtles feed, they can easily mistake the trash for food. Ingesting ocean plastic can cause internal blockages that often lead to starvation or death.

The risk of plastic ingestion is especially high for sea turtle babies that encounter microplastic pollution in the sargassum, or floating patches of algae, where they live and feed during their first weeks of life.

Sea turtles that avoid eating ocean plastic are still at significant risk of becoming entangled in ghost nets, buoy lines, and other plastic fishing gear. Entanglement can cause severe injuries that lead to infection. Many times, entanglement is fatal.

To advance sea turtle research, we donated $29,082 to Florida Atlantic University Marine Research Lab in 2018 and will donate another $10,000 at the end of 2019. Our donation will be used to study and care for sea turtle hatchlings before they’re released into the wild.

From Bali, with love.

Hand assembled by an artisan in Bali, Indonesia.

Purchasing a 4ocean bracelet does more than clean the ocean. It also creates sustainable, living-wage jobs.

As soon as our beads, cords, and charms reach our main facility in Denpasar, Bali, a crew loads up our van and motorbikes to distribute these components to artisans in remote villages scattered across the island.

Women comprise 80 percent of this workforce. In Bali, women tend to assume the role of primary caretakers for their families, which means their job opportunities are limited. Because they’re able to hand assemble our bracelets in their homes and village centers, more women are able to join the workforce while continuing to care for their families.
