I bought these lovely bracelets from 4Ocean. They are a made from glass beads and the cord is from recycled water bottles. Each month they release a new bracelet to raise awareness for various problems affecting our oceans. This particular bracelet is their April bracelet in honor of Earth Day. For every bracelet sold they pull one pound of trash from the ocean and coastlines. In the two years they’ve been operating they’ve pulled over half a million pounds of trash from the ocean and coastlines. Every year 8 million tons of trash enter the ocean. While this operation isn’t a permanent solution, they are helping to create awareness while doing something to make our beaches more beautiful and save the marine life from some of the trash that pollutes their homes.

If you send me a product idea to review that I end up using I will send you one of these lovely bracelets. Unless you’re weirded out giving me your address, in which case I will give you a virtual high-five!
