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.

OCEAN FACT

The Everglades is a UNESCO World Heritage Site just like the Great Barrier Reef, Grand Canyon, and Serengeti Plains.

PRODUCT STORY

Half of the Everglades has already vanished

The Everglades is a test. If we pass it, we may get to keep the planet.

Marjory Stoneman Douglas

Author and activist; known as the “Mother of the Everglades”

The Everglades has a rich cultural and natural history that spans centuries. It’s listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site, UNESCO International Biosphere Reserve, and Ramsar Wetland of International Importance.

This vast expanse of subtropical wetlands is made up of eight different ecosystems and is a valuable source of drinking water for millions of Floridians. Despite its significance, the Everglades has been dredged, diked, and drained to make way for agricultural and urban development, which has severely impacted water quality throughout the state of Florida.

In addition to development, microplastic pollution, nutrient pollution, invasive species, and sea level rise are having a cumulative effect that threatens the future of this historic ecosystem.

Our $25,000 donation to Captains For Clean Water will support Everglades restoration through advocacy, education, and policy change at the state and federal levels.

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.
