Disclaimer: The ratio of one bracelet to one pound of trash removed is an approximation based on total revenues of the bracelets and total trash removed from the ocean by 4Ocean.  Some of the trash that has been allocated to the 4Ocean one pound per bracelet pledge throughout this website may not have been removed straight from the ocean but from a coastline and is considered Ocean-bound trash. 4Ocean defines the term "Trash" as any man made material that does not belong in the ocean and is damaging to the environment.
