An Overview of the Proposed 

 CBO Foundation Initiatives 

One only needs to visit a local grocery store or food mart to view an endless amount of single-use plastic packaged products almost everyone is forced to acquire. Although we often take the convenience of these products for granted, once you search plastic waste on Google or Youtube the global impact of this plastic-related packaging waste issue comes into clear focus.

 

The CBO Foundation is not an anti-plastic organization. We recognize that plastic products in general serve a very viable purpose in our daily lives. However, we also recognize that single-use plastic packaging waste has become one of the world's greatest waste challenges, and it continues to grow into a full-blown crisis at an unbelievable pace in the post CoVid-19 world of safety. 

 

Our goal has always been and remains today, to address ocean plastic waste at its source - our homes  and local store regardless of where we may live. To offer a fun and educational list of programs and initiatives to educate people on the impact single-use plastic waste products have on our oceans, landfills, marine life and our health.  

 

We intend to work together with any responsible like-minded party or organization to build a global group of consumer activists to help solve this waste crisis. Not through blame, but through a collective effort that will be rewarding for all who participate.

 

To accomplish this challenge our core initiatives are briefly outlined below. Click on any logo below to be directed to their web pages for more details. 

The CBO Ocean Messenger Magazine is our proposed quarterly digital online magazine, designed to update readers on the ocean issues and progress we have made through our efforts.

We will offer a limited number of printed copies to public libraries, colleges and for member subscription. We may even provide free copies within the SandDollar Travel Group's network of Travel Cafes, which will 

feature our content and distribute our messages. They will not, however, be sold on newsstands. We will keep advertising to a minimum, as contributions will cover most of the projected publishing costs 

We also plan to launch The Ocean Messenger Podcast a weekly video

podcast series hosted by our Founder, The Shark beginning in December

2020. He will share the latest news and information pertaining to the

many ocean issues, the organizations that promote the issues and viable

solutions, share reusable products to help reduce the use of plastic waste

at home, and how we intend to address the millions of toms of this waste

already deposited onto our islands and coastlines.

 

The Shark will bring in special guests to discuss the impacts plastic waste,

rubber and other marine debris has on the oceans and the communities

that live near them. The impacts of overfishing our largest natural food

resource and why we must stop killing over 75 million sharks each year 

for their fins purely for soup. 

Our goal is to address the ocean plastic waste issues in key ocean travel markets, including California and Florida, but also two principal island groups. The Cbo Foundation will develop two core waste initiatives: 

                                                                                            The  Caribbean Waste Initiative and the Hawaiian Waste

                                                                                             Initiative, each will set out to address plastic waste and

                                                                                              marine debris within the Islands, plus help fund local beach

                                                                                              clean-up events and local organizations. Each region will

                                                                                               have its own offices and ocean teams. Later we plan to

                                                                                               add the South Pacific Island regions.

In an effort to help educate the public on just how plastic travels among our oceans, the CBO Foundation developed its proposed  Find Your Plastic Porpoise treasure hunt.  

Most people have no idea that a plastic bottle discarded in California

or another coastal town, can find its way to a South Pacific Island or

Caribbean beach in just a few years. To demonstrate how plastic waste

moves on the oceans, from point "A" to point "B", we will use Treasure

Hunt that rewards people who find one of our GPS trackable Plastic

Porpoises we drop annually into the Caribbean Sea for cash prizes of

$25,000, $50,000 and even $100,000 per Plastic Porpoise recovered.

The Clear Blue Oceans Foundation (CBO

Foundation) is the private non-profit organization of the AngelPreneur Venture Group. We are dedicated

to increasing awareness

of the plastic waste crisis,

the need to  end shark

finning and over-fishing

of our oceans, marine life 

and global tropical reef

conservation issues. We do NOT have, nor do we intend to obtain a 501 (c) 3 Tax 

exempt status from the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) until we establish our programs and initiatives in 2021.
