Introducing Our Non-Profit
Clear Blue Oceans Foundation
The Clear Blue Oceans Foundation Inc. (CBO Foundation) is APVG's private Hawaiian non-profit corporation. Although the CBO Foundation’s primary mission and objectives are clearly rooted in environmental issues and scope, it is not, nor does it claim to be, an environmental organization.
Our Founder views it as a Hybrid Non-Profit, which merges its initiatives and programs with our for-profit ventures to accomplish a common social objective. It is NOT currently a 501 c(3) Tax-exempt organization, although it may seek that status in the future on some programs. Once obtained it will accept tax-deductible private and corporate donations.
The CBO Foundation’s primary goals and objectives include, but are not limited to, addressing the growing global single-use plastic packaging waste crisis, increasing awareness of ocean plastic waste and marine debris. To showcase impacts this waste has on our coastlines, tropical islands and reefs, marine life conservation efforts, plus help reduce overfishing and shark fining practices.
The CBO Foundation is not anti-plastic, but it will promote and seek to educate the global public on efforts to help them reduce their daily use of plastic packaged items. To shift the mindset of consumers and retailers at the source, the local level, through an aggressive platform designed to shift plastic packaging patterns within stores, restaurants and product manufacturers, while promoting a better waste management strategy.
The CBO Foundation, together with APVG companies will offer solutions based on realistic expectations and address the negative social patterns that must be changed to reverse the damaging trends killing millions of fish, seabirds and marine life. Together they will set out to empower its PlasticPreneurs (people) worldwide to help increase awareness of the plastic waste issues to effect a meaningful change in their consumption and waste management habits.
The collective goal is to interact and engage directly with local consumers everywhere about the ocean and plastic issues, offer solutions and reusable products, and promote sustainable practices, while showcasing the beauty and importance of our oceans.
