This week, while speaking at the Hexagon Live 2019 conference in Las Vegas, I learned about 4Ocean. This company was started by two surfers who wanted to figure out a way to clean up the plastic in the ocean after they saw how littered the beaches and water were during a surfing trip to Bali. They now make bracelets out of ocean trash, with each bracelet using one pound of trash to make. Since the inception of 4Ocean, they have removed more than 4.7 million pounds of trash from the ocean. A pretty powerful mission I would say.
Today, I am grateful for the entrepreneur – someone who sees a need and seeks to fill it. In this case, a win for the owners of the company, and a win for the world.
It was a powerful experience to see what 4Ocean is doing, so this week, I thought I’d do my part to help them make a difference. Check them out at 4Ocean.com
PS – I’m wearing my bracelet as a reminder that we can all make a difference – even if it’s one plastic bag at a time.
