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.

    “One of the simplest, most effective things you can do to help save seahorses — and protect vital marine habitats around the world — is to avoid eating farmed or trawled shrimp.”

    Regina Bestbier

    Research Biologist
    Project Seahorse

    Every year, millions of seahorses are exploited for use as traditional medicines, tonic foods, aquarium exhibits, and souvenirs. Human activities are also degrading and destroying the coral reef, mangrove, seagrass, and estuary habitats they call home. Destructive fishing practices, particularly shrimp trawling, result in their accidental capture and contribute to habitat loss.

    Scientists say continued overexploitation will result in severe population declines and that existing conservation efforts may not be enough to save them. Right now, 42 seahorse species are included on the IUCN Red List; of those, 14 are listed as vulnerable or worse while 17 are listed as data deficient, which means we don’t know enough about those species to assess their conservation status.

    While we may not know everything about every species of seahorse, we do know enough to take action. By reducing the overproduction and overconsumption of single-use plastic, ending harmful fishing practices like bottom trawling, and advocating for marine protected areas, we can better protect these vulnerable and overexploited species.

    Our $25,000 donation to Project Seahorse will help establish marine protected areas, improve national management, regulate global trade, and develop new science that advances seahorse conservation.

    From Bali, with love.

    Purchasing a 4ocean bracelet does more than clean the ocean. It also creates sustainable, living-wage jobs.

    As soon as our beads, cords, and charms reach our main facility in Denpasar, Bali, a crew loads up our van and motorbikes to distribute these components to artisans in remote villages scattered across the island.

    Women comprise 80 percent of this workforce. In Bali, women tend to assume the role of primary caretakers for their families, which means their job opportunities are limited. Because they’re able to hand assemble our bracelets in their homes and village centers, more women are able to join the workforce while continuing to care for their families.
