Smiling Rocks Partners with 4ocean


4ocean is a certified B Crop and a Public Benefit Corporation that are committed to their mission of ending the ocean plastic crisis from our oceans and coastlines while inspiring individuals to work together for cleaner oceans.






Since 1950, the world’s plastic production has grown by 8.6% per year: from 1.5 million tons annually to over 330 million tons annually. Only about 9% of plastic has been recycled, 12% has been incinerated (polluting the air with toxic gases), and the remaining 79% remains in the environment. If current production and waste management trends continue, by 2050, there will be 12 billion tons of plastic in natural environments (ie. the ocean).



4ocean is a Public Benefit Corporation with a mission to end the ocean plastic crisis and accelerate the world’s transition to living and ocean-friendly lifestyle. They are a cleanup company dedicated to ending the ocean plastic crisis. They harness the power of business to fund a global cleanup operation that’s responsible for recovering millions of pounds of plastic and other debris from the world’s oceans, rivers, and coastlines.


All of their captains and crews are full-time employees who live in the communities they serve. The jobs they create help counteract the economic impacts of plastic pollution, incentivize environmental stewardship at the local level, and bring new opportunities for growth, equality, education, and prosperity to people wholes livelihoods and quality of life are disproportionately impacted by plastic pollution.



Smiling Rocks is proud to be a member of the clean ocean movement working alongside 4ocean and the global community to build a more sustainable future where humanity grows alongside nature and not at its expense.
