4ocean is a mission-driven for-profit business, dedicated to removing trash from our oceans and coastlines while inspiring individuals to work together for cleaner oceans. Founded In 2017, 4ocean was created with the mission to sell a product that would enable the company to fund a worldwide cleanup initiative. This is how our first product, the 4ocean bracelet, was born. Made from recycled materials, every bracelet purchased funds the removal of one pound of trash from the ocean and coastlines. In only four years, we have sold enough bracelets & products to enable us to pull over 14 million pounds of trash from the ocean. Bracelet sales are just the beginning. We are building an assortment of high quality, sustainably-made products that will help people reduce their dependence on single-use plastic, reuse the materials we collect from the ocean, and celebrate the 4ocean brand and ocean-conscious lifestyle. Beyond our products, we combat the ocean plastic crisis through technology, cleanups, influence, and education. We are a for-profit business, because we believe in creating sustainable, profitable business models around cleaning the ocean rather than relying on external funding. Our ocean clean-up operations, currently in the U.S., Haiti, and Indonesia, are meticulously documented and audited for transparency, and are regularly expanding to new locations and deploying new clean-up technologies. Our operations employ several hundred people around the world, pulling trash seven days a week.

Our lives revolve around the ocean. It’s where we go to work, relax, appreciate nature, and experience the joy of being alive. And to see those places littered with plastic, to see wildlife disappearing, to see people losing their income and way of life…it’s the driving force behind why we clean. We do what we do to protect the people and places we love. Not just for ourselves, but for every generation that comes after us. Cleanups alone aren’t enough to end the ocean plastic crisis. Each of us has a role to play in preventing plastic pollution and we must work together to stop it at the source. As a Public Benefit Corporation, we’re legally required to prioritize our social and environmental impact alongside shareholder value. We decided to file as a PBC to ensure we stay focused on our mission no matter what the future brings. 4ocean is a Certified B Corp—just like Patagonia, Bombas, Tom’s, Ben & Jerry’s, and many of your other favorite do-good brands. Recognized as the highest standard for social and environmental corporate responsibility, this certification means that our entire business—from our daily operations to our financials—has been audited by the third-party nonprofit accreditation firm B Lab to verify that our impact is real.
