This collaboration is near and dear to us as our curator has traveled to Bali and seen this devastating crisis first hand. She spent a lot of time with the waters in Bali, praying and offering gratitude. She also volunteered with Trash Hero to help cleanup the beaches.
Alex and Andrew, two surfers created 4Ocean after visiting Bali and seeing the amount of trash in the ocean. 4Ocean collects trash from the oceans around the wold and transforms this trash into cute bracelets. The profits from the bracelets is how they run their business.
The bracelets are made with recycled materials, every bracelet purchased funds the removal of 1 pound of trash from the ocean and coastlines. In less than 2 years, 4ocean has removed 4,317,335 pounds of trash from the ocean and coastlines.
4ocean currently operates out of multiple countries and employs over 150 people worldwide. Please join us in drastically reducing plastic use and helping to clean it out of the ocean. Purchase bracelets here.
