An Overview of the CBO Hawaiian
Plastic Waste Initiative
As part of the CBO Initiative to Reduce Ocean Plastic Waste and address the ongoing, and growing Hawaiian plastic waste issues, the CBO Foundation will set out to help Plastic2Power International (P2PI), The Plastic Waste Solution Company build out a new waste management solution in Hawaii.
With the support of our corporate Partners. private and corporate donors, we will attempt to keep the beaches and coastlines within all of Hawaiian Islands clean of debris, and hope to expand to remote northerly islands and atolls.
The CBO Foundation is developing a new waste monetization strategy called the CBO Waste2Cash Card Program. We will partner with P2PI to build-out a network of Waste2Cash Collection Centers throughout the Hawaiian Islands, with a single waste processing facility in Honolulu or another Hawaii location.
These centers will collect and pay local consumers for returning their clean
single-use plastic packaging waste products, glass bottles and containers, styrofoam packaging, and scrap tires in cash, funded by our CBO Waste2Cash Trust Fund.
With the support of our corporate Partners. private and corporate donors, we will develop our CBO Marine Debris Recovery Group, to address waste and marine debris on remote islands and coastal areas through targeted clean-up missions. The goal is to keep the beaches, reefs and coastlines within the Hawaiian Islands clean.
We are also developing our exclusive CBO MySandDollars.com online travel rewards membership program designed to engage the public long-term in helping increase awareness of the waste issues and build a viable solution.
Find Your Plastic Porpoise
The CBO Foundation has developed a unique Treasure Hunt called its Find Your Plastic Porpoise. The goal is help showcase how plastic travels among our oceans from where it may enter to where it ends up, often on some far off island or coastline. Participants will be able to track and locate GPS equipped Plastic Porpoises we release in the Caribbean and elsewhere , and return them to us for a Cash Prize.
"If your dreams don't scare you they are too small.
Dreaming comes with some level of risk, and the biggest and
best dreams come with a lot of risk – failure, criticism or loss of hope.
But those who achieve great things are the ones willing to be scared but not scared off.
Everything you’ve ever wanted is on the other side of fear."
Sir Richard Branson
