Ocean cleanup company 4ocean, will pull their one-millionth pound of trash on July 20, 2018. This comes less than two years after the company was founded in January 2017.
To date, 4ocean’s cleanup efforts have been funded entirely by the sale of their bracelets, which are made with post-consumer recycled materials. Each bracelet purchased removes one pound of trash from the ocean and coastlines.
4ocean will also be debuting two new products to celebrate the one-millionth pound pulled. The branded reusable bottle and cleanup kit will be available for pre-order purchase on July 20.
4ocean’s full-time captains and crews remove plastic and trash from above and below the water and along the coastlines seven days a week with operations spanning from Florida to Bali.
Schulze says that “4ocean’s goal is to be the largest ocean cleanup company. We want to have Cleanup Divisions in all corners of the globe that are pulling plastic out of the most impactful areas and cleaning our oceans.”
The 4ocean team headquartered in Boca Raton has a company-wide cleanup scheduled on July 20 to celebrate. Employees from every department will be at Red Reef Park pulling plastic and trash.
