If you’ve ever liked or supported a page on Facebook that has to do with plastic pollution, you may have seen an advertisement for a $20 dollar bracelet made of plastic yanked from the ocean. 4ocean removes one pound of trash from the world’s oceans per bracelet purchased, and after a long almost 3 year slog, 4ocean is closing in on 8 million pounds of trash pulled from the sea.

Cleanup efforts are currently underway in Florida, Bali, and Haiti—and now 4ocean is expanding its presence and operations into Central America, an area that is suffering from a blight earning it the moniker “trash islands”.

4Ocean uses several of Elastec’s products in their fight against plastic pollution. These include the MaxiMax containment boom, Brute Boom, and Beach Bouncer.
