Ambassadors and volunteers dedicated to minimizing waste in our ocean ecosystem compile the 4ocean team. Volunteers all over the world can contribute to the cause by actively cleaning up beaches and preventing pollution before it enters the ocean.


Offshore clean up and deep-sea diving crews work tirelessly to remove trash from our oceans and sort and clean recyclables to produce high-quality bracelets. Looking for an extracurricular activity for the kids this summer? Add the 4Ocean application with the bracelet and let the kids help in clean beach and ocean efforts all over the world.



Cut down on waste, pollution and cost with revolutionary portable water, Ooho. Each Ooho “bottle” contains spring water enclosed in a plant-based lining completely edible and environmentally friendly. Send them along in care packages and gift baskets to the kids for travel, work, school and music festivals.


Each Ooho contains approximately one cup of water in formidable clear lining entirely made of plants and seaweed. Ooho water bottles are biodegradable in four–six weeks and can be flavored and colored. Like a piece of fruit, each water ball is fresh and has a shelflife of a few days. Resembling a crystal-clear water balloon, Ooho is a fun and sustainable way to stay hydrated on the go.
