Do you love the ocean One organization that you might not know of is the 4 ocean organization. It’s a nonprofit organization that helps keep our ocean clean and they make bracelets from the plastic that they get from the ocean.  Each bracelet you buy comes with a card showing which animal you saved with your purchase.


    They use water bottles and other plastics that they find in the ocean and make bracelets out of them. Right now it costs 15 dollars for one bracelet and the best thing about these bracelets is that you can buy them and they go with pretty much everything. You can match them with any color or any style that you have. The best thing about these bracelets is that you can even pick your favorite from the sea. You can pick anything from a sea otter to a pink flamingo.


 When your friends ask about them you will even have a fun story to tell about how you are helping to save the earth’s beautiful features. We all need to do our part to save the earth. We have beautiful earth and it’s the perfect thing to give as a gift to people. It protects the ocean so that it will be there for future generations. There are now 5.25 trillion macro and micro pieces of plastic in our ocean & 46,000 pieces in every square mile of the ocean. This organization helps to make that number got smaller and smaller.


   This is a very important organization to me because I love going to the beach and going to the ocean and I can’t imagine not being able to go in a couple of years due to all the plastic. It also breaks my heart thinking of all those little fishy and Turtles. The reason they eat plastic is that they don’t know the difference and it’s very hard to see plastic in the ocean. The saddest thing about it is that Turtles, otters, and a bunch of other animals are becoming extinct. 


But hopefully, by supporting 4 oceans we will always be able to save the ocean and have the ocean come back to its original beauty and maybe even more fish and sea life can have their home back. Another sad thing about having plastic in the ocean is that it destroys much more than just sea creatures. It also destroys coral reefs and other things that sea creatures use for their homes. 


The ocean will always be home to more than just the creatures that live in it. A beach is a happy place and a relaxing place for so many people. When you go somewhere with the ocean and you smell the salty ocean water and you feel the sand it’s the best feeling in the world. To some people, they still prefer Mountains and they like Mountains and hiking but that doesn’t mean we should not be trying to do everything we can do to help the ocean. No matter what we do or what our hobbies are we should all do our best to save the planet we all share. 


So we can all do our part and save the planet and even if you can’t donate or want bracelets you can always help by just picking up plastic no matter where you are it doesn’t even have to be at the beach. So, please help save our planet
