Company Removing Ocean Trash, One Pound at a Time
An ocean cleanup company will remove its one millionth pound of trash from the Atlantic Ocean on Friday.
4Ocean, a company founded January 2017 in Boca Raton, FL, raises money for its operation through the sale of bracelets, which are made from post-consumer recycled materials. It then uses these funds to pay fishermen to collect plastic and other trash from the ocean.
The company is committed to creating a sustainable economy by giving trash a monetary value and inspiring people to change their behavior.
