4Ocean and the defence of our oceans and coastlines. Posted on 11 Jul 14:59
4Ocean is a global movement that is actively cleaning the ocean 7 days a week and are solely funded by sales of their 4Ocean Bracelets. In order to fully understand the scale of the issue, here are are some important facts about what is ending up in the ocean.
Every piece of plastic ever produced - EVER - is still on our earth, in some form and will continue existing for at least 500 years. To put that into context, if Christopher Columbus threw a plastic bottle into the ocean when he was sailing to America it would still be there today. This understanding of plastic can then be used to see how the estimated 26 Billion pounds of trash and plastic going into our oceans each year is such a huge issue.
If you would like help combat this, then you can purchase a 4Ocean Bracelet, as every bracelet sold will not only remove 1 pound of trash from the ocean and coastline but will help fund the various campaigns of their monthly environmental causes: 4Ocean Bracelets
