4ocean Low Profile Hat - Logo Patch

$30.00 USD

You’ve never bought a hat like this


DESCRIPTION

 

While most hats are made using virgin plastic, every possible plastic component of this hat — from the curved bill to the patch and intricate stitching — is made from 100% post-consumer recycled plastic. The fabric covering is made from 100% GOTS-certified organic cotton. Every hat purchased funds the removal of one pound of trash from the ocean and coastlines.

 

FEATURES

  • Curved hat bill interior made from 100% post-consumer recycled plastic
  • Fabric covering made from 100% GOTS-certified organic cotton
  • Trims and patches made from 100% recycled polyester
  • Adjustable sliding buckle ensures a comfortable fit for all sizes
  • Easily attaches to your backpack, purse, or belt loop

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.

  • Recycling plastic isn’t as simple as we were led to believe

    Whether plastic is recyclable boils down to two things: the market and your local government. Recyclers and manufacturers are willing to pay for in-demand plastics. City governments that have waste management infrastructure generally accept these high-value plastics because they can profit from them. PET (#1 plastic) and HDPE (#2 plastic) are so widely and easily recycled in curbside programs because they have the highest manufacturer demand and are the most profitable to recycle

    Plastic with little or no demand will enter a landfill or an incinerator — no matter what bin you put it in — simply because there’s no money to be made by recycling it. Some plastics, like expanded polystyrene (AKA: Styrofoam), are impossible to recycle because they can’t be melted

    For many manufacturers, purchasing virgin plastic is substantially cheaper than recycling plastic, even though the environmental cost is exponentially higher

    4ocean hats are one of our most commonly requested products, but all of the hats currently on the market are made using virgin plastic and that doesn’t fit our mission. While we wanted to introduce hats our customers would love, we refused to do it at the ocean’s expense

    We took the time to develop a totally sustainable supply chain so we could manufacture hats made from 100% post-consumer recycled plastic. We considered every detail, down to the stitch, and went the extra mile to use recycled plastic components

    4ocean hats are like no other hat on the market because they’re sustainably made from 100% post-consumer recycled plastic and 100% GOTS-certified organic cotton, which means you’ll look good and feel even better wearing them
