Let me tell you a little something about this company called 4Ocean. They make bracelets. Every time you buy a bracelet of theirs, 1 pound of trash is pulled from the ocean and coastlines. It’s great. Right? As of now, August 17th, 2018, 1,118,250 pounds of rubbish has been pulled out of our oceans and coastlines thanks to them. Their team has cleaned up in over 27 countries so far.
Their bracelets are a unisex design, fully adjustable and more importantly made from 100% recyclable materials. The cord is recycled polyester and the beads are recycled glass.
In January 2017, they wrote an article on their website on how much trash is in our oceans. According to their study, a mighty 1.4 billion pounds of trash enters our oceans. Every day, so many of us check the news and see more and more in the media regarding ocean pollution. The impact humans are having on marine life is destructive. I know we all have the same view on it, well everyone except Donald Trump. Laws are getting put in place to stop plastic use, for example, plastic bag bans and so on; making a positive impact can be difficult. This is why I love this company, and the opportunity it gives us to make a difference, as small as it is.
Throughout the year, they run many campaigns to target specific marine-related issues and raise money for causes. Currently, they are bringing to light the impact overfishing is having on our oceans.
