4Ocean (www.4Ocean.com), an ocean cleanup company working to rid the ocean and waterways of plastic and trash, will conduct a major cleanup event at Revere Beach in Massachusetts to highlight International Coastal Cleanup Day on Saturday, September 15, 2018 from 9:00am – 11:00am.
The organization will set up on the beach at the intersection of Beach Street and Revere Beach Boulevard. All are invited to participate in cleaning the shore.
“Bring along a reusable water bottle and a smile,” notes 4Ocean co-founders Alex Schulze and Andrew Cooper. “Our team will provide all of the necessary cleanup materials needed for the beach cleanup.”
With headquarters in Boca Raton, Bali and a new site in Haiti, 4Ocean is a global movement actively removing trash from the ocean and coastlines while inspiring individuals to work together for cleaner oceans, one pound at a time. Since launching in January 2017, 4Ocean has already pulled over 1.2 million pounds of trash.
Visit the group’s Facebook event page to pre-register. All participants who did not register in advance for the event will be asked to sign a liability waiver.
To date, 4Ocean’s cleanup efforts have been funded entirely by the sale of bracelets made from post-consumer recycled materials. Each bracelet purchased removes one pound of trash from the ocean and coastlines. Additional products supporting 4Ocean include a new reusable bottle as well as a cleanup kit.
