4Ocean manufactures and sells bracelets made from recycled materials, as well as apparel and water bottles. The company uses a portion of the profits to remove one pound of trash from the ocean and coastlines for each bracelet that is sold in an effort to clean up plastic pollution in oceans. Now operating in several countries around the world, 4Ocean employs people to collect trash from the ocean and beaches, and organises beach cleanups by volunteers. It is an award-winning company, gaining recognition for its entrepreneurial success. They are currently at work in Bali and Java, Indonesia; Haiti; Guatemala and Hawaii, USA. In addition, they have created The 4Ocean Learning Center as a resource 'for teachers, students, businesses, and any ocean enthusiast who wants to learn more about the ocean plastic crisis and be part of the solution to plastic pollution.'
