Plastic accounts for up to 90% of all marine debris. The overproduction and overconsumption of single-use plastic has created a global crisis. While often used for just seconds, plastic has a lasting impact in the environment. Breaking down into smaller microplastic particles to spread throughout our oceans, being consumed by fish and other marine life. As filter-feeders, whale sharks are highly susceptible to plastic pollution as they sieve inshore surface waters filled not only with plankton but also thousands of microplastic particles.
4Ocean is a purpose-driven brand on a mission to end our ocean plastic crisis. For every product purchased, they pull one pound of trash oceans, rivers and coastlines. While also encouraging people to live more sustainably by raising awareness about the impact of plastic pollution on sharks and other marine animals.
