Fed Up Surfers Launch Full-Blown Ocean Cleanup Operation

4Ocean has ocean-cleaning crews operating seven days a week.

It took only two disgusted surfers with a big idea to make the 4Ocean story possible. The crew launched a campaign to clean up the waters they surfed and never looked back.

Beginning in January 2017, 4Ocean quickly become a viral cleanup movement targeting oceans around the world. In less than a year, the crew has grown to four boats and captains, 34 employees, and a permanent, 8,000-square-foot cleaning facility. Throughout this time, they've removed over 90,000 pounds of trash from the world's oceans.

The crew is based in Florida and does many local beach cleanings, but has also completed cleaning operations internationally. Many operations involve beach cleanups where trash has piled up. Others involve diving crews that scour the ocean's floor. All are taking place seven days a week.

All of these cleaning efforts are made possible through the sale of small bracelets. These bracelets are made from 100-percent-recyclable material.

Whether it's outdoorsmen and conservation or surfers and ocean cleanup, it's the people who use our natural resources most that care the most about them. For more information, visit 4Ocean.com.
