CLOSED-LOOP PROGRAM

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.

A remarkable comeback story

If seabirds are doing well, it’s generally an indication that the entire ecosystem is doing well.

Hannah McDougall

Director of Communications

Pelican Harbor Seabird Station

Brown pelicans are dramatic hunters that soar over the ocean, using their keen eyesight to identify schools of fish before plunging headfirst into the water from heights of up to 100 feet. Found along both coasts in North America, these social and surprisingly graceful seabirds were almost driven to extinction in the 20th century. 

Hunted for their beautiful feathers and culled by fishermen who saw them as competition for fishing resources, brown pelicans were first added to the endangered species list in 1970. Once the pesticide DDT was banned in 1972, their population not only recovered, but expanded, which led to their removal from the endangered species list in 2009. 

Despite their remarkable comeback story, human activity is still a threat to brown pelican populations, with oil spills and plastic pollution at the top of the list. An estimated 82,000 birds died in the 2010 Deepwater Horizon oil spill, including one out of every 10 brown pelicans in the Gulf of Mexico. In Florida alone, at least 500 pelicans are killed each year after becoming entangled in fishing gear and other debris.

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.
