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

4ocean x To-Go Ware
Bringing common sense
to our culture of convenience

Single-use plastic utensils recovered by a 4ocean Bali crew in a single day

You get them at the drive-thru. They’re delivered to your house when you order out. They’re single-use plastic utensils — and they’re trashing our planet.

Did you know that most disposable forks, spoons, and knives are made from polystyrene #6? Polystyrene is a cheap, brittle plastic that leaches potentially toxic chemicals, especially when heated. And worse, it’s nearly impossible to recycle, which means these products enter our landfills and pollute our oceans.

Biodegradable utensils are not the answer either. While they aren’t made from plastic, they do require very specific conditions in order to compost and most industrial facilities don’t meet the requirements. Bio-plastic utensils are usually pulled from the waste stream and tossed into our landfills. As they break down, they create methane gas that contributes to climate change which also harms our oceans.

We partnered with To-Go Ware to bring you this utensil set because of their commitment to designing products that are environmentally responsible, innovative, safe, affordable and convenient. They bring common sense to the convenience of our “to-go” culture.

Bamboo is an extremely durable material that can withstand a great deal of use without damage. When it’s harvested, bamboo quickly regenerates new shoots from its extensive root system, so it doesn’t need to be replanted. It’s a sustainable, long-lasting, non-petroleum based material that has endless useful applications.

Over the course of its lifecycle, one 4ocean x To-Go Ware Bamboo Utensil Set prevents an average of 1,300 single-use plastic utensils from entering our landfills and polluting our oceans.
