DESCRIPTION

In less than 90 years, manta ray populations have declined by nearly 80 percent due to threats like plastic pollution, climate change, overfishing, and illegal hunting. 

We introduced our limited edition Manta Ray Bracelets to shine a spotlight on these issues and drive positive action on behalf of manta rays. For every Manta Ray Bracelet sold this month, we’ll pull one pound of trash from the ocean, rivers, and coastlines and donate $1 to our partner of the month, Indoneisan Manta Project.

The coral and black cords of our Manta Ray Bracelets represent the combined threats that are causing manta populations to spiral. The new manta ray charm makes it easier to identify your bracelet and raise awareness about the plight of manta rays. As always, the “4O” charm identifies you as a member of the clean ocean movement and symbolizes your commitment to the clean ocean movement.

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.

In the end, we will conserve only what we love. We will love only what we understand. We will understand only what we are taught.

In less than 90 years, manta ray populations have declined by as much as 79%, which has changed their conservation status from vulnerable to endangered. Without ongoing efforts to clean the ocean and protect manta rays, their population will continue to decline.

That’s because, 30 to 50 years ago, everything in the ocean was edible. If a manta ray opened its mouth, it was getting food. Now, up to half of what these filter feeders consume is plastic. When ocean plastic is ingested, it can introduce toxins that damage their health, impact their ability to reproduce, and hinder efforts to recover their populations.

Manta are also uniquely vulnerable to entanglement in plastic debris because they migrate such vast distances across the ocean. Long lines, gill nets, drift nets, and other fishing gear pose the biggest entanglement risk. Bycatch in the commercial industry, poaching for the illegal gill plate trade, and habitat loss are also major threats to their recovery globally.

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.
