DESCRIPTION

We introduced our limited edition Hawaiian Coral Reef Bracelets in partnership with the Center for Marine Debris Research to raise awareness about the human threats that are degrading and destroying Hawai'i’s coral reef system, which is crucial to biodiversity and global food security. For every Hawaiian Coral Reef Bracelet 2-Pound Pack sold this month, we’ll pull two pounds of trash from the ocean and donate $2 to our partner of the month.

Made from 100% post-consumer recycled plastic, the bright red bracelet cords represent the urgency with which we need to act to protect the reef and the thousands of unique species that rely on it to survive. 

The limited edition coral reef charm symbolizes the donation you’ve made to our partner of the month, which will help fund projects that reduce the ecological damage caused by ghost nets on Hawaiian coral reefs. As always, the “4O” charm represents the pound of trash you pulled and symbolizes your commitment to the clean ocean movement.

  • Two pounds of trash recovered from the ocean, rivers, and coastlines for every Hawaiian Coral Reef 2-Pound Pack sold this month
  • $2 donated to our partner of the month, the Center for Marine Debris Research, for every Hawaiian Coral Reef 2-Pound Pack sold this month

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 rainforest of the sea

Reef at Molokini Crater, Maui, Hawai'i

Ghost nets recovered by the Center for Marine Debris Research

There are very few labs across the world that focus specifically on plastic pollution. I can count them on one hand. In the US, most researchers in this field must drive or ship their delicate filtered samples to other cities or states for analysis. HPU’s Center for Marine Debris Research is poised to become a global leader in microplastic pollution research driven by the mission of a trash-free ocean.

The Hawaiian coral reef stretches over 1,200 miles into the Central Pacific and accounts for about 80% of all coral reefs in the United States. Often called the “rainforest of the sea,” the Hawaiian reef supports incredible biodiversity and provides food, shelter, and habitat for more than 7,000 marine species. Over 25% of these species are endemic to Hawai'i, which means there are more than 1,250 unique species living here that can’t be found anywhere else in the world.

The Hawaiian reef system also feeds entire communities that rely on the ocean for sustenance. It acts as a natural breakwater that protects shoreline communities and coastal cities from wave and sand erosion caused by storms. It’s also what creates Hawai'i’s famous white sand beaches and iconic surf. Tourism, recreation, and other ocean industries that rely on the reef generate millions of jobs and billions of dollars for Hawai'i’s economy. 

Despite the importance of Hawai'i’s reefs, human activity is the biggest threat to their survival. While all of Hawai'i’s reefs are impacted by the growing threat of climate change, reefs near the Main Hawaiian Islands are also plagued by marine debris, urbanization, overfishing, invasive species, and recreational overuse. The uninhabited Northwestern Hawaiian Islands are mostly impacted by marine debris and overfishing associated with commercial fishing and other maritime industries.

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.
