Pull a pound for stingray


About 70% of the plastic that enters the ocean winds up on the seafloor where it can entangle or be consumed by bottom feeders like stingrays. When you purchase a Stingray Bracelet, you’ll pull one pound of trash from the ocean, rivers, and coastlines, and help raise awareness about the impact of plastic pollution on our oceans and our wildlife.

FEATURES

  • Every bracelet purchased funds the removal of one pound of trash from the ocean, rivers and coastlines
  • Cord manufactured in China from 100% certified post-consumer recycled plastic bottles, including less than 5% reclaimed ocean plastic
  • Clear bead manufactured in China from 95% certified post-consumer recycled glass bottles, including less than 5% reclaimed ocean glass
  • 4ocean charm manufactured in China from 95% recycled stainless steel
  • Hand assembled by artisans in Bali
  • Double cobra braid with beaded toggle closure
  • Available in four non-adjustable sizes
  • Unisex, waterproof design
  • Includes “1LB” vinyl decal
  • Component manufacturing process and recycled content are audited and verified by GreenCircle (see certification)

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

The roombas of the ocean

Bluespotted stingray on the ocean floor

Whipray washed up on shore due to consequences of oil spill and excessive fishing

Elasmobranch (shark, ray, and skate) populations around the world are in decline, and effective conservation measures are urgently needed.

ICES Journal of Marine Science

Volume 69

Issue 8

Stingrays are infamous for their whip-like tails and venomous barbs, but these cartilaginous fish are actually quite gentle unless threatened or in danger. As benthic feeders, most stingrays hunt on the seafloor and use their mouths like a vacuum to suck up prey which their powerful jaws crush up.

In a pristine environment, stingrays would only consume crustaceans like crabs, shrimp, crayfish, barnacles, lobster, and krill. However, about 70% of the plastic that enters the ocean sinks to the ocean floor where it can be consumed by bottom feeders like stingrays. In 2019, a stingray was found with a glass bottle, a pack of cigarettes, a book, and a whole camera in its stomach.

Rays and their shark cousins are at higher risk of extinction than most other animals. However, research on the impacts of plastic pollution has taken a backseat to even greater threats like overfishing and bycatch. But we don’t need more research to know that plastic does not belong in the ocean.

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.
