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 ocean has no filter for plastic

Manta rays cyclone feed on plankton, Baa Atoll, Indian Ocean

Manta ray entangled in fishing net, Yap, Micronesia

Everything in the water 30 to 50 years ago used to be edible. If a manta ray opened its mouth, it was getting food. Now, up to half of what it consumes can be plastic.

Louie Psihoyos

Founder and CEO

Oceanic Preservation Society

As filter feeders, manta rays swim with their mouths wide open and use special structures in their gills, called gill rakers, to strain plankton out of the water column. This method of feeding makes plastic ingestion an inescapable and potentially deadly reality for these unique creatures.

Commercial fishing also poses a significant threat. Entanglement, bycatch, and poaching for the illegal gill-plate trade have sent manta ray populations into a downward spiral. Climate change, habitat loss, boat strikes, and unregulated tourism also have a negative impact on manta ray populations.

Communities that once hunted manta rays have become some of their greatest protectors after learning that these beautiful creatures actually have more value, both ecologically and economically, when they’re alive and allowed to thrive.

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.
