What a Ride! 4ocean's Experience at Surf Expo 2019

 

A couple times a year, vendors and exhibitors for everything "surf" converge on the Orlando County Convention Center in Florida to show off their latest product lines, what they have accomplished during the year, and to get people excited about the future of their companies. It was 4ocean's fourth Surf Expo show and it could not have been a better or more exciting experience for us!  

With so much to look back on in 2018 and so much to look forward to in 2019, there was no shortage of amazing conversation, brainstorming, and energy around the 4ocean booth. All of the hard work that the 4ocean Team puts in day in and day out is validated and acknowledged in a setting like this because of all the incredible feedback we get from our customers and others who see what we are doing to clean up ocean plastic every day.

Retailers, media, and other exhibitors were all super stoked to hear about how many pounds we pulled in 2018, all the marine-related causes we supported, our new product offerings for 2019 (stay tuned), and they can't wait to follow the Ocean Plastic Recovery campaign on its mission to pull millions of pounds of plastic and trash before it ever has a chance to make it into the open ocean. 

We were the Official Recycling Partner of Surf Expo, hosted the Industry Party, and had a presence with our message throughout the show on our thought-provoking signage and banners. The support of everyone we spoke with said volumes about that message and the need for an ocean cleanup company like 4ocean right now.

Though studies have yet to reveal a tangible effect on humans, plastic debris can be destructive to marine habitats. Ultimately, we all share this planet, and global ecosystems influence each other — what happens in one will eventually find its way to another.

However, this situation extends decades beyond modern-day — and the inception of plastic itself stretches even further. Understanding the history of ocean plastic pollution gives us a glimpse into how this material became so pervasive and how we might learn from past behaviors.

The side effects of plastic pollution are all around us — in our land, water, and air. This material has made a significant mark in human lives since its popularization in the 1950s, but it has also brought consequences. Although the problem is significant, it's not undefeatable.
