A local biz is saving our waters one bracelet at a time! This is something we should all care about but most sadly don't
WPTV: A local organization is making a difference in our oceans. One piece of plastic at a time.
It's the only group you'll find in South Florida that goes out every single day, removing trash from the Intracoastal waterways and surrounding ocean.
"So many people have shown us unbelievable amounts of support and wanted to get behind our mission," said Alex Schulze, co-founder of 4Ocean based in Boca Raton.
That trash is then sorted and sent off for recycling. To fund the clean ups, 4Ocean has bracelets made from the recycled plastic, which have become incredibly popular online. Its Facebook page as over 100,000 likes and counting, with Instagram and Facebook videos being viewed millions of times.
What's even more surprising is the fact that Schulze barely started 4Ocean six months ago. It's an innovative idea that Schulze believes can make a difference.
"It's a problem that's growing and everyone is starting to see it," he said. "The bracelet is simply a token to show how committed you are to cleaner oceans."
