4Ocean (www.4Ocean.com), an ocean cleanup company headquartered in Boca Raton, Florida, has expanded their operations with a new international division in Port-au-Prince, Haiti.
"We're honored to work alongside the Haitian community to clean our oceans and help restore the prosperity and beauty of the island," says 4Ocean Co-Founder Alex Schulze
."The enthusiastic response from the Haitian government and citizens has been incredible," says Schulze.
"We have already identified other high-impact areas and expect to open additional cleanup headquarters that pull plastic and trash in areas where it will make the greatest difference for the ocean and the communities who rely on it to survive."
The company's initial goal is to pull at least 3,000 pounds of plastic and trash from the waters and beaches of Haiti every day. With support from the Haitian government, U.S. Department of Commerce, and U.S. Chamber of Commerce.
