4Ocean and the million plastic bottles bought every minute Posted on 10 Sep 14:13
4ocean is a US company that funds the removal of plastic from our oceans but selling bracelets made of 100% recycled materials. They pledge to remove a single pound of waste from our ocean and our coastlines for every 4Ocean Bracelet that is sold. As well as sponsoring events for local volunteers to clean-up they also donate funds to great causes through limited edition bracelets.
Currently, there are one million plastic bottles bought every minute around the world and less than half of these bottles end up getting recycled. This situation is made worse by all the negative environmental impact effects of plastic. Firstly, the production and distribution of plastic has a massive carbon footprint for a product that is in most cases a single-use product. The damage to sea-life and marine birds is immense as plastic breaks down in to toxic pieces and enter their food-chain.
