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

No coral. No blue.

Coral reef with clownfish and sea anemone, Sudan, Red Sea

Severe coral bleaching, Phi Phi Islands, Thailand

“Coral restoration projects can bring back coral cover that has been lost in the last few decades.”

Alex Neufeld

Marine Biologist + Underwater Cinemaphotographer

Coral Restoration Foundation

Coral reefs are found in 109 countries around the world. They cover just 1% of the ocean floor yet support around 25% of all marine life. Over the last few decades, coral colonies in 93 countries have experienced significant degradation, largely due to human activity.

Climate change is the largest contributor to coral bleaching events. Around 90% of the planet’s excess heat is absorbed by the ocean. These higher temperatures can cause prolonged heat stress that leads to mass coral bleaching. A bleaching event doesn’t necessarily kill coral, though it can if the stress isn’t alleviated. Coral that survives a bleaching event becomes weaker, struggles to grow and reproduce, and becomes more vulnerable to disease.

Plastic is a threat because it contributes to climate change at every phase of its lifecycle. Once it enters the ocean, it can smother coral reefs weakened by our changing climate and cause abrasions that often lead to deadly infections. About a quarter of the world’s coral reefs are already considered damaged beyond repair. If the current rate of degradation and die-off continues, coral reefs could disappear in just a few decades.

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.
