Global marine conservation company 4Ocean has partnered with Delivery Dudes to reduce single-use plastic pollution by changing consumer habits. The South Florida-based restaurant delivery service with more than 50 locations in Florida, Tennessee and Pennsylvania now offers the option for customers to opt out of plasticware when placing an order.

“I’ve personally wanted to eliminate the waste created by delivery for years,” stated Delivery Dudes COO Ryan Sturgis. “We’ve always been thinking about a final solution, which has been difficult to create. The reality is we need to get started in order to make an impact. I’m glad we’re kicking off a program with a local business to raise awareness in our communities.”

4Ocean has removed more than 4 million pounds of trash from the ocean and coastlines in 27 countries and partnered with more than 15 nonprofit organizations in support of marine conservation, according to a company press release. The company employs more than 300 people in the U.S., Indonesia, and Haiti.

“We’re excited to partner with Delivery Dudes on this project to reduce single-use plastic,” said Tony Chvala, COO at 4Ocean. “Offering the option to say ‘no’ to single-use plastic utensils is a step in the right direction of creating more sustainable consumer choices.”
