The amount of plastic waste entering the ocean every year is equivalent to 5 grocery bags of plastic trash sitting on every foot of coastline around the world.
Casual enough for the office, beautiful enough for date night
Our premium Sterling Silver Earrings are proof that ocean trash can be turned into something beautiful. Featuring colored flakes of 4ocean Plastic suspended in a plant-based epoxy resin, our hypoallergenic .925 sterling silver earrings are handcrafted for an artisanal flourish that makes each and every piece unique. Every jewelry set purchased pulls two pounds of trash from the ocean.
The Blue Collection is made with 4ocean Plastic recovered directly from the beaches of Oahu, Hawai'i. The Pink Collection is made with 4ocean Plastic recovered directly from Florida’s coastlines. In addition to pulling pounds, each collection provides the funding we need to expand our global ocean cleanup operation and advance our mission to end the ocean plastic crisis.
Please note that variations in color, tone, and placement are to be expected because our jewelry is made with different types of recovered ocean plastic and each flake of plastic is set by hand.
Wakami is an ethical organization that connects rural communities in Guatemala to global markets, which helps generate income for women and youth and transforms cycles of poverty into cycles of prosperity.
4ocean’s Sterling Silver Jewelry is handcrafted by Wakami using 4ocean Plastic that our crews recover from beaches and coastlines around the world.
Wakami uses the proceeds from this jewelry to support Proyecto Puente Belice, or the Belize Bridge Project, a program that empowers teens from vulnerable communities by providing access to education and a reliable source of income.
