Did you know that 8 million tonnes of plastic enter the oceans each year?
This plastic pollutes our waters and beaches, harms marine life and provides a negative lasting effect on our planet.
I am proud to feature 4Ocean on this #MakeADifferenceMonday because they are on a mission to stop this environmental damage by cleaning up the oceans. To-date they have pulled almost 630,000 lbs of trash out of our oceans!
So, how do they do it?
It all started with two guys (Alex and Andrew) surfing in Bali and realizing the amount of plastic that was washing up on the beaches and impacting local communities. From their passion came 4Ocean – remember when I said YOU can make a change in the world – these guys are living proof! 4Ocean’s core mission is:
4Ocean employs captains and clean up crews from Florida to Bali, who collectively work 7 days a week to clean the oceans and beaches. Awesome, right?! Well, 4Ocean needs help, from people like you and I.
By going to their website (https://4ocean.com) and purchasing a 4Ocean bracelet you will remove one pound of trash from the ocean.
ONE BRACELET = ONE POUND OF TRASH REMOVED FROM THE OCEAN
“The 4Ocean bracelet is made from 100% recycled material. The exact material used to make the cord is called RPET (recycled polyethylene terephthalate, also known as recycled water bottles) and the beads are made from recycled glass bottles. The 4Ocean charm that is attached to the bracelet is made from stainless steel.” – 4Ocean.com
I was so excited when I heard of this organization, I grabbed mine right away. On top of being a cute and meaningful accessory (not to mention a conversation starter!), the bracelet represents your commitment to cleaning the ocean and raising awareness of the 4Ocean movement!
So let’s help these guys out – buy a bracelet and pull a pound of trash from the ocean! Its that easy.
SEE THE WORLD, MAKE IT BETTER.
