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

A single plastic bottle can take up to 450 years to degrade in the ocean.

PRODUCT STORY

The overproduction and overconsumption of single-use plastic have created a global crisis

4ocean Bali cleanup crew member recovers ocean plastic

The ocean plastic crisis, Sulawesi, Indonesia

This is our ocean. This is our world. This is our opportunity to clean the ocean and change the course of history for generations to come. Together, we can end the ocean plastic crisis.

ALEX SCHULZE

4OCEAN CO-FOUNDER

If you look at a graph of plastic production and consumption over the past 30 years, you’ll see exponential growth. Toxic, unsustainable growth. Plastic pollution has been documented everywhere in the world — even in the deepest part of the ocean, the Mariana Trench, where only four people have ever been.

Single-use plastic has become the greatest contributor to the ocean plastic crisis. These “convenient” products are used for just seconds but pollute the environment indefinitely. Over time, large pieces of this plastic degrade and break apart into smaller and smaller pieces called microplastic.

Many marine animals, including the fish we eat, ingest microplastic and the toxins it absorbs. These toxins can leach into their tissues and cause significant health issues. Microplastic has even been found in our drinking water and a variety of food items, but the human impact of ingesting microplastic has not yet been determined.

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.
