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

No predators, still in danger

West Indian manatee mother and calf, Crystal River, Florida

Manatee scarred by boat propeller, Crystal River, Florida

Manatees’ largest threats come from human activities, and human action is the only thing that can help them!

Wayne Hartley

Manatee Researcher

Save The Manatee® Club

Manatees are gentle and passive mammals who live in shallow, slow-moving rivers, estuaries, saltwater bays, canals, and coastal areas like those in the Caribbean Sea, Gulf of Mexico, and Amazon basin. As herbivores, they love to munch on seagrass, mangrove leaves, certain kinds of algae, and other water plants. 

Extremely curious, these marine mammals will investigate what other animals would run from, including boats and people, which is why watercraft collisions are the leading cause of mortality for manatees. They also use their mouths and flippers to explore their environment, so anything that gets stuck in the vegetation they consume can quickly become a threat. 

Plastic bags, balloons, fish hooks, and monofilament fishing line are commonly ingested and often cause significant harm to manatees. Anchor lines, crab trap buoys, and abandoned fishing gear can also entangle and drown manatees. That’s why it’s up to us to protect these gentle creatures and aid the recovery of their population and habitats around the world. 

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.
