Frequently Asked Questions

OUR CLEANUPS/EFFORTS

Where do you host your cleanups at?

The 4Ocean team is constantly traveling and moving from coastline to coastline both locally and internationally to help keep all beaches and oceans clean. The 4Ocean team hosts both onshore and offshore cleanups. Onshore Beach Cleanups are an effective way to prevent trash from entering the ocean whereas Offshore Cleanups are a very effective way to remove trash that has already entered the ocean. Please feel free to sign up for our newsletter at the bottom of the page to receive more information in regards to future cleanups and when and where our next cleanup will be! 

  

What do you do with the trash you collect at your cleanups?

All of the trash we collect is rinsed and sorted. After that, it is analyzed to be recycled. If it can possibly be recycled such as glass and plastic, it is brought to a local recycling center. If it is considered non-recyclable it is disposed of as such at a reputable waste facility. 

 

Can I volunteer at a cleanup?

Yes! We are always thrilled when people want to volunteer and come out to help us clean our beaches! If you are interested in volunteering, you can sign up for our newsletter, at the bottom of the page, to be informed when and where our next cleanup is going to be. If it is in your area, we encourage you to come out and join us in cleaning the beaches! 

 

AMBASSADOR PROGRAM

Can I become a 4Ocean Ambassador?

We are always on the search for Ambassadors to help represent 4Ocean! Our Ambassadors are individuals as passionate about our mission to create a sustainable future for our oceans as we are. If you believe you would make a great 4Ocean Ambassador, we encourage you to apply here.

 

What does being a 4Ocean Ambassador Mean?

Our Ambassadors are motivated individuals who are just as passionate about our mission as we are and they help keep their local beaches and environment clean as often as possible. Our Ambassadors help spread the word about the 4Ocean movement to others while proudly and respectfully representing the company. We also encourage our Ambassadors to send in their photos of them wearing or showing off their 4Ocean gear as well as photos of them making a difference in their community to share with our followers!

 

How Long Does It Take To Be Approved?

The 4Ocean Team carefully goes through each and every Ambassador application submitted. To read over every application can take time so we ask that you please remain patient while waiting for your application to be approved.

 

I was approved to be a 4Ocean Ambassador. Do I get a free bracelet?

If you were approved to be an Ambassador, it is because we believe you would make a great addition to our team and help represent 4Ocean! Unfortunately at this time we are not offering a free bracelet to our Ambassadors because we do not want people to abuse our Ambassador system to receive free merchandise. Please also keep in mind that your purchase is what helps make a difference and goes toward the funding of both our onshore and offshore cleanups and we hope that all of our dedicated Ambassadors understand that! 

 

ABOUT THE BRACELET

What material is the bracelet made out of?

The 4Ocean bracelet is made from 100% recycled materials. The exact material used to make the cord is called RPET (recycled polyethylene terephthalate OR 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.

 

Is the plastic/glass you collect from your cleanups used to make your bracelets?

At this moment in time, no. The beads and the cord from our bracelets are made from post-consumer recycled plastic water bottles and recycled glass bottles, but not all of these bottles come from our ocean clean ups - they are the bottles that are being recycled by everyday users. However, all of the bottles that are collected in our clean ups are recycled so it is not to say that it is impossible that one of these bottles end up in a bracelet!

 

Are there different sizes?

No, there is only one size. The 4Ocean bracelet is 100% adjustable, so it can fit as tight or as loose as you would like!

 

Is the bracelet waterproof/resistant?

Yes! The 4Ocean bracelet is 100% waterproof and we encourage that you bring it in the ocean with you! 

 

What do I do if my bracelet broke?

We offer a 1 year warranty on all of our bracelets! If your bracelet broke for any reason, please contact us through our contact submission form here. Please be prepared to send us your first and last name, shipping address, order number, and a picture of your damaged bracelet.

We ask that you remove the 4Ocean charm and recycle the rest of the bracelet to ensure it doesn't end up in our oceans! Both the beads and the cord are made from post-consumer recycled plastic and glass bottles and is 100% recyclable!
