April's Bracelet: Earth Day

Global climate change is one of the biggest threats to life as we know it on this planet. The man-made release of carbon dioxide (CO2) and other greenhouse gases such as methane and perfluorocarbons (PFC’s), are causing our planet to warm at an unnatural rate. This warming is threatening many different marine ecosystems around the world and is creating stress and mortality for the marine life that lives there. 
  
 
Life as we know it will not sustain without the ocean or plant life. It is this fact that has driven us to partner with the Earth Day Network for April. Earth Day, celebrated on April 22, demonstrates global support for environmental protection. It is observed with events in more than 192 countries around the world. We happily support Earth Day Network’s “Canopy Project” which has the goal of planting 7.8 billion trees by 2020, that’s one for every person on the planet!
 
  
Another huge threat to the global community is the exponential growth of plastics (in particular, single use plastics) that we are producing at an alarming rate. From poisoning, injuring and suffocating marine life to littering our ocean and beaches, and clogging our streams, rivers and nearshore waterways, plastics are a massive problem that needs to be addressed. Earth Day Network has targeted plastic as its main campaign for Earth Day this year: End Plastic Pollution. Our team at 4Ocean truly believe in this campaign, as we are fighting against plastic pollution every day!
Support our mission of cleaner oceans by purchasing a Limited Edition Earth Day Bracelet. Not only will the Blue and Green colors remind you that you should treat every day like it is Earth Day, but you will also remove 1 pound of trash from the ocean and coastlines as well as help to fund the planting of trees through Earth Day Network's Canopy Project.
