Welcome to the
Clear Blue Oceans Foundation
Welcome to the Clear Blue Oceans Foundation (CBO Foundation) website. We are a Hawaiian, 501c(3) non-profit organization that until recently has been inactive due to the ongoing Covid pandemic.
Although we are a non-profit, we own a controlling interest in a joint venture for-profit operating partnership called CBO Worldwide with our founder's AngelPreneur Ventures Group Inc. now being established to further develop and operate all of our awareness programs and initiatives.
CBO Worldwide is designed to separate the for-profit activities from our non-profit objectives. Once fully established, we will receive eighty-percent (80%) of all CBO Worldwide net profits after it pays for all related operating costs, to self-fund our many programs and initiative long-term.
Initially, the CBO foundation is funded with tax deductible donations from individuals and corporate donors. We use these funds to fund our awareness program development activities, and later coastal clean-up initiatives, fund documentary filmmakers, select research projects and outside ocean-focused organizations.
The oceans represent our largest natural food resource on earth and produce most of the oxygen we breathe. However, we are also passionate about growing organic food that lessens the impact on our planet as a whole.
It is hard for us to fully understand why so many people worldwide are unaware of the simple facts about our oceans, and the impact a growing global population has on our planet, while taking both the oceans, our water supplies, energy sources and farms for granted.
Collectively, our oceans have had an estimated 165 million tons (330 billion U.S. pounds) of plastic and rubber waste deposited into them in just the past 50 years, and these are outdated numbers. Covid has added an estimated 1.5 million face masks and greatly increased the use of plastic packaging waste again.
This waste collects on our coastlines and tropical island beaches, and leads to the death of countless marine life and over a million seabirds annually. We are not anti-plastic, however, we believe this waste starts on its way to filling local landfills to over capacity.
Consider that we have allowed close to 39.6 billion gallons of crude oil, or over 942.9 million barrels of oil (at 42 gallons per barrel) to pollute and sit within our oceans and coastlines. It is estimated that our locallandfills represent ten times or more that amount.
Sadly, the single-use plastic packaging waste trends are growing at an alarming rate today, and we MUST address this crisis. First on a local level, then expand worldwide. We consume A Million Plastic
Bottles EVERY MINUTE, of EVERY DAY!
Consider that we use over 500 BILLION Plastic Bottles each year in the United States alone. Now an estimated1.6 Billion face masks have found their way to the oceans, along with an increase plastic packaging and rubber glove waste thanks to the global Covid crisis.
Although much of this waste ends up on the sea floor, 30% of all rubber-Based and single-use plastic waste such as water bottles collect on the coastlines, reefs and tropical island beaches. This waste has a lasting and devastating impact.
That impact is long-term - not just on our oceans and coastlines, but on our tropical reefs, and the island countries with limited landfill space. This waste kills over a million sea birds and other marine life annually.
The world's remote islands have been littered with this plastic trash dating back over 50 years and unless we deal with it - it will remain there forever!
However, even as we improve upon our recycling efforts and collect more of this waste, it does not match the growth of new plastic products coming into the waste stream. The CoVid Pandemic has actually increased the use of plastic packaged products, making this hidden crisis even more urgent.
We also intend to address, develop and operate fully sustainable, off-the-grid indoor community farms, as part of our humanitarian mission, providing solar powered, veggie farms that make fresh drinking water from local humidity.
We are in the process of updating our website content and some links may be down. Please join us in our efforts to address these issues by making a tax-deductible donation to us today.
The CBO Foundation has been privately funded since it began,
however we are now developing a rewards-based crowd-funding
campaign on FundRazr to start launching our programs and initiatives in 2022. We welcome and accept cash donations and
BitCoin crypto-currency from those who wish to help us.
We just received our proof CBO Silver SandDollar Medallions,

All of our programs and initiative employees, and key team mates work for CBO Worldwide, a joint venture for-profit operations partnership that operates all our activities as part of our long-term self-funding strategy.
We can not deny we are living in the Age-of-Plastics!
No matter how hard we try, single-use plastic filled
packaged products are all around us. We can not
avoid them, as plastics of all kinds have been fully
integrated into our daily lives. We must ask ourselves,
"Do we really need cookies, apples and many of these
products packaged in clear plastic boxes? The answer
is NO we do not!
Although we are environmentally-focused, neither the CBO Foundation, or its Founder are anti-plastic. They simply recognize it for what it represents - a growing global waste crisis. We advocate to reduce its use and better manage this waste. We believe many of these products can be placed back into paper-based bags or boxes like they were for many years before plastic.

The Midway Islands are over a 1,000 miles Northwest of Hawaii, but they collect mountains of plastic waste on their coastlines, killing marine life.
Our Oceans cover 71% of the Earth surface, and they represent our largest natural food and oxygen resource. We must stop over-fishing them.
We humans allow for the killing of over 75 million sharks each year for shark fin soup, a disgusting trend that must be stopped.
In l2021 we elected to incorporate a vertical organic
farming model into our overall awareness mission.
We recognized that much like oceans, we have had a
massive impact on our planet from deforesting our
rainforests and farm lands to meet the worlds food
demands. The ever-growing animal agriculture issue
is a core cause of ocean issues and CO2 emissions.
We intend to address this issue not from an just an
environmental perspective, but in finding solutions.
The "Cowspiracy" documentary Trailer shares more.
By 2050, the world’s population is expected to grow to 9.7 billion people, and feeding it will be a huge challenge. Due to industrial development, urbanization, and animal agriculture, which is rarely talked about, we are losing arable lands that could feed the world every day. Our Earth has lost a third of its arable lands over the previous 50 years.
"We all came out of the Oceans, which has a soul that flows and lives within each of us.
They represent everything we should all long to be; bold and mysterious,
beautiful to look at, yet even more beautiful as we look below the surface
to see a wild, yet free world we all need to collectively preserve."
