1st Grade Takes Action – 4ocean Project

Posted 04/10/2021

Dear Bradley Families,

Our 1st graders have been studying the ocean and our impact on the ocean’s ecosytem.  We have learned about how pollution continues to accumulate in the oceans and the effect its having on the coral reefs, kelp forests, and animals.  As part of our IB programme, we encourage the kids to take action to enhance their learning, and they are eager to take action to lessen our human impact on our oceans.

In our research, we discovered a company called 4ocean –  an organization founded by 2 surfers who grew tired of all of the trash on the coast and in the ocean. Please read more about the company here, https://4ocean.com/pages/our-story . 4ocean collects ocean trash and creates bracelets and other products from the glass, plastic and metal they collect.  One product sold generates enough money to collect up to one pound of trash.

As part of our action, we would like to sell these bracelets and 4ocean products the week of April 12th– 16th.  Please help our first graders and make a difference in cleaning up the world’s oceans. Attached you will find a description of items available and an order form to purchase items, please be sure to write your student’s name and teacher on the order form. All items must be paid for with CASH ONLY. No checks or credit cards.

Thank you,
