Boca Raton-based company 4ocean LLC is making national headlines with their coastline and ocean cleanup initiatives. The story about removing five million pounds of trash from the water since 2017 and creating more than 300 jobs in the process was recently featured on CBS News. Their cleanup efforts are funded by the sale of their 4ocean bracelets: one bracelet sold pulls one pound of trash from the water. 4ocean states that the cord of the bracelet is made from 100% post-consumer recycled material, recovered from plastic bottles. “When you have the opportunity to grab plastic silverware, or a plastic straw, you look at your wrist and you go…‘I'm going to say no this time. I'm going to refuse, and then reduce, and then reuse, and then recycle,” said co-founder Andrew Cooper. With each bracelet sold, they hope to remind people to be conscious of the impact of their purchases. To help the cause and purchase your own bracelet, visit 4ocean.com.
