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

Have you ever seen an octopus fly?

Armatus Oceanic CEO

Chief Scientist on the Five Deeps Expedition

In 2020, a dumbo octopus was sighted by a submersible at a record-setting 23,000 feet, a testament to how resilient and adaptable these animals are.

Dr. Alan Jamieson

Hospital Director, Ke Kai Ola

The Marine Mammal Center

Dumbo octopuses are considered the most adorable octopuses in the ocean and it’s easy to see why! These little cuties are slightly larger than an adult guinea pig and swim the ocean’s depths by slowly flapping their ear-like mantle fins — just like the famous elephant for which they’re named. Dumbo octopuses aren’t a single species, but a genus that consists of 15 different umbrella octopuses, which means they come in a dazzling variety of shapes and colors.

As the world’s deepest-living octopus, these cephalopods thrive in the dark, cold water found at around 13,000 feet. Because they live so far down, we’re only starting to learn about their habits, distribution, and threats. We do know that plastic has been found at even greater depths of 36,960 feet. So while very little may be known about the dumbo octopus, we do know that we need to protect their ocean habitat so we can continue to learn about these adorable creatures.

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.
