4Ocean introduced the limited edition Whale Shark Bracelets in partnership with Guy Harvey Ocean Foundation to raise awareness about the human threats that are causing whale shark populations to decline. For every Whale Shark Bracelet sold this month, they pull one pound of trash from the ocean and donate $1 to a partner of the month.
Made from 100% post-consumer recycled plastic, the pastel pink bracelet cords represent the importance of continued research and education that can help save this endangered species.
The limited edition whale shark charm symbolizes the donation you’ve made to our partner of the month, which will help fund Guy Harvey Ocean Foundation’s whale shark tagging and tracking program. As always, the “4O” charm represents the pound of trash you pulled and symbolizes your commitment to the clean ocean movement.
According to research by the Guy Harvey Research Institute at Nova Southeastern University, whale sharks can live as long as 130 years!
