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

Soaring toward extinction

Albatross off the Tasmanian coast, Pacific Ocean

Seagull entangled in single-use plastic bags

Marine birds are the ones who are actually telling us how healthy the ocean is and they are often overlooked.

Patricia Zurita

CEO

BirdLife International

Plastic ingestion by seabirds was first documented in the 1960s and has been increasing ever since. Today, at least 40% of seabird species are known to ingest plastic. Experts predict that this will rise to 99% by 2050. In the next 30 years, nearly every seabird on earth will have eaten plastic.

It’s not just grown seabirds that are consuming plastic either. Many chicks are fed plastic by parents who have mistaken it for food. Sharp plastic fragments can cause fatal internal injuries and soft plastics like balloons can block their digestive tract. Entanglement and bycatch are other potentially deadly consequences of ocean plastic pollution.

The speed at which seabird species are declining is another indicator that our efforts to remove plastic from the ocean are not only necessary, but mission-critical.

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.
