What a Year it has Been for 4ocean - Thank You

 

Looking back on 2018, it has been a year of momentum and accomplishments, expansion and milestones. But now, having some time to reflect and really look back on what an incredible year it has been for 4ocean as a company and for the ocean as a whole, there is so much to be proud of and it's all because of YOU!!!

Watch the short video below to see how purchasing a 4ocean recycled bracelet contributed to ocean cleanup and many other amazing causes in 2018.....

Together, we pulled more than 2.5 million pounds of trash from the ocean and coastlines...

  • ...worked with Carbonfund.org to offset over 3.2 million pounds of atmospheric CO2 and Polar Bears International to help save polar bears.
