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.

PRODUCT STORY

Penguins are now one of the most
endangered seabirds on earth

King penguins walking back to rookery, Falklan Islands

Magellanic penguin entangled in plastic

One of the main problems for penguins is that they’re not only marine animals, they’re also animals that live on land, so they accumulate threats not only in the ocean, but also on land.

Pablo García Borboroglu

Global Penguin Society

Researchers estimate that by 2050, nearly every species of seabird will be ingesting plastic debris — and that includes penguins. Plastic isn’t digestible; it accumulates in penguins’ bellies and prevents them from digesting real food. Sharp plastic fragments can cause fatal internal injuries while soft plastics can block their digestive tract.

Plastic absorbs toxins from the environment and emits chemicals as it degrades. Penguins that ingest ocean plastic are also at risk for the bioaccumulation of toxins, which can cause a variety of health issues, including neurological and reproductive disorders as well as cancer and birth defects.

Plastic invades even the most remote penguin habitats, washing up on nesting beaches and fouling colonies throughout the Southern Hemisphere. Lost and discarded fishing gear is responsible for entangling most seabird species, but it’s not uncommon to see penguins entangled in other man-made pollution like 6-pack rings.

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.
