DESCRIPTION

We introduced our limited edition Hawksbill Sea Turtle to celebrate World Ocean Day and raise awareness about the threats facing these critically endangered reptiles. For every Hawksbill Sea Turtle Bracelet sold this month, we’ll pull two pounds of trash from the ocean, rivers, and coastlines and donate $2 to our partner of the month, Sustainable Coastlines Hawaii.

The emerald green cords are made from 100% post-consumer recycled plastic and represent the balance that hawksbill sea turtles bring to the marine ecosystem. The limited edition turtle charm symbolizes the donation we’ve made to our partner of the month, which will support cleanups in sea turtle habitats. As always, the “4O” charm represents the pound of trash you removed from the ocean, rivers, and coastlines, and symbolizes your commitment to our mission to end the ocean plastic crisis.

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

Voted most likely to ingest plastic

Hawksbills are disappearing. I urge CITES countries to act, right here and right now, before it’s too late.

Christine Madden Hof

Marine Species Project Manager

Hawksbill sea turtles are found in tropical waters around the world and are crucial to the health of our coral reefs. Named for their narrow heads and sharp, bird-like beaks, hawksbills feed almost exclusively on sponges. It’s estimated that one turtle can consume over 1,000 pounds of sponges each year. Without hawksbills to keep their populations in check, sponges can overgrow corals and suffocate our reefs. 

Hawksbills are perhaps the most beautiful sea turtle because of their brightly colored and elaborately patterned shells. Used to make “tortoiseshell” items like jewelry and ornaments, hawksbills were hunted to the brink of extinction before the international tortoiseshell trade was finally banned. However, an illegal black market thrives.

The combined threats of the illegal wildlife trade, overfishing, climate change, habitat loss and degradation, pollution, and the harvesting of their meat and eggs for human consumption have caused their global population to decline by more than 80% in the last century. Today, hawksbill sea turtles are considered critically endangered.

Plastic pollution is a relatively new issue that threatens these already vulnerable animals. A 2013 study of plastic ingestion in sea turtles found that hawksbills were most likely to ingest plastic — more evidence that our efforts to clean the ocean aren’t just necessary, but mission critical.

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.
