Pull a pound for bluefin tuna


DESCRIPTION


Bluefin tuna aren’t what you find in cans. These endangered fish are used in high-end dishes, especially sushi, and can sell for thousands or even millions of dollars. The potential for high profits means these fish are both overfished and illegally fished, and they’re disappearing from the ocean as a result. When you purchase a Bluefin Tuna Bracelet, you’ll pull a pound of trash and help raise awareness about the threats facing the world’s favorite fish.

FEATURES

  • Every bracelet purchased funds the removal of one pound of trash from the ocean, rivers and coastlines
  • Cord manufactured in China from 100% certified post-consumer recycled plastic bottles, including less than 5% reclaimed ocean plastic
  • Clear bead manufactured in China from 95% certified post-consumer recycled glass bottles, including less than 5% reclaimed ocean glass
  • 4ocean charm manufactured in China from 95% recycled stainless steel
  • Hand assembled by artisans in Bali
  • Double cobra braid with beaded toggle closure
  • Available in four non-adjustable sizes
  • Unisex, waterproof design
  • Includes “1LB” vinyl decal
  • Component manufacturing process and recycled content are audited and verified by GreenCircle (see certification)

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

The world’s favorite fish

Bluefin tuna, North Atlantic

Bluefin tuna for sale at dockside market

Giant tuna, such as bluefin tuna, have a commodity value where a single tuna can sell for tens of thousands of dollars. When wildlife has a high value, it is hard to stop commerce or trade in the species. We have to stop thinking that tuna are just food on our table.

Barbara Block

A prize catch for fishermen, bluefin tuna are also top ocean predators. They start life as larvae no bigger than an eyelash, but grow quickly and can reach lengths of 15 feet and weigh up to 2,000 pounds. There are three species of bluefin: the Atlantic, the largest and most endangered, Pacific, and Southern.

You won’t find these fish in cans, though. These luxury fish are used in high-end sushi and sashimi. In fact, a single bluefin once sold for over $1.75 million! The potential for high profits means these fish are both overfished and illegally fished — and they’re disappearing as a result. The Atlantic population has already decreased by 85 percent.

Of equal concern is plastic and chemical pollution in the habitats of these highly migratory fish. One study found plastic pollution in the stomachs of tuna that contained chemicals like phthalates and bisphenol A. More research is needed to understand the human impact, but there’s no doubt that more aggressive action is needed to stop plastic pollution.

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.
