Vision Marine is a Buy One, Pull One Certified Partner of 4ocean.

BOCA RATON, Fla., Nov. 16, 2023 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- Today, 4ocean announces that Vision Marine Technologies, a global leader and innovator within the performance electric recreational boating industry, will officially join the clean ocean movement and launch their Buy One Pull One campaign to help remove 500 pounds of ocean plastic and trash for every electric watercraft and 300 pounds for every E-Motion powertrain system sold.
About 40 million metric tons of plastic waste is produced each year, according to the UN Environmental Programme, with global production of primary plastic forecasted to reach 1,100 million metric tons by 2050. Approximately 36% of all plastics produced are used in packaging, including single-use plastic products —85% of which ends up in landfills or as unregulated waste.
Together, Vision Marine Technologies and 4ocean will be helping to pull trash and plastic from the world's waterways with every sustainable water propulsion system sold.
4ocean's global ocean cleanup operation will also move towards carbon neutrality, as Vision Marine Technologies donates their Zenith Electric Pontoon to 4ocean's headquarters in Boca Raton Florida. The Zenith is an innovative solar-powered marine propulsion system that has just completed the Amped Up Challenge, a 1,050 nautical mile journey powered by solar energy down the Intracoastal Waterway from Virginia to Miami, marking the longest distance traveled on an electric boat.
Vision Marine Technologies stands at the forefront of positive change in marine environments. Through their E-Motion Powertrain technology, electric boats, and rental locations, they're redefining marine propulsion systems and championing sustainable waterways.
4ocean is a premier ocean cleanup company dedicated to ending the ocean plastic crisis. Since 2017, its professional, full-time captains and crews have removed more than 32 million pounds of plastic waste and other man-made debris from the world's oceans, rivers, and coastlines
"We are beyond stoked to have Vision Marine join us in the clean ocean movement and to have one of their sustainable vessels added to our fleet," said 4ocean CEO and Co-founder of 4ocean, Alex Schulze. "We have always prioritized low impact ocean cleanup solutions, so we're very excited to have the solar powered Zenith Electric Pontoon to help us remove more plastic from the environment."
Recently, Vision Marine Technologies made racing history by smashing the electric watercraft speed record, reaching 116 mph with Shaun Torrente and setting the new standard in electric boating. They have also announced the delivery of their pioneering E-Motion™ Electric Powertrain Technology, which will travel across the Atlantic Ocean to be showcased at the esteemed Dusseldorf boat show in January, 2024 to mark a new era in eco-friendly marine transport.
4ocean launched its corporate partnership program in 2022 to help forward-thinking brands transition to the circular economy—a regenerative economic system designed to minimize waste, maximize resource efficiency, and promote sustainability by designing products, processes, and business models that make it possible for brands to use their resources in a continuous loop without degradation or loss of value.
