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

Incredibly cute. Incredibly important.

Sea otters bring balance all the way down the food chain, restoring coastal habitats and enabling entire ecosystems to thrive.

Sea otters are considered a keystone species because they play a crucial role in maintaining healthy nearshore marine ecosystems in the Pacific. They’re also considered a sentinel species, which means they act as indicators of the ocean’s overall health.

More research is needed to understand the causes of the southern sea otter population’s sluggish recovery, but key threats include non-consumptive predation by sharks, disease, pollutants and contaminants, limited food availability, oil spills, and human disturbances.

Sea otter deaths tend to occur near areas with dense human populations. Runoff from these communities introduces diseases, parasites, and toxic compounds into the coastal waters where sea otters live. When sea otters consume their filter-feeding prey, they’re exposed to these contaminants in harmful or even lethal doses.

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.
