Introducing Our Non-Profit
Clear Blue Oceans Foundation
The Clear Blue Oceans Foundation Inc. (CBO Foundation) is a private Hawaiian non-profit organization, founded by The Shark. Although the CBO Foundation’s primary mission is clearly rooted in environmental issues, it is not, nor does it claim to be, an environmental group. The Shark views us as a Hybrid non-profit, which merges its initiatives and programs with the for-profit businesses of his Integrated Ventures to accomplish a common social objective. It is NOT a 501 c(3) Tax-exempt organization.
The CBO Foundation’s primary goals and objectives have changed somewhat since the CoVid-19 pandemic disaster hit the world. This caused funding to slow down, and some projects and programs to be cancelled.
They will seek to establish offices within California and Hawaii in 2021 to continue building on its efforts to address the growing single-use plastic packaging waste crisis, increasing awareness of ocean plastic waste and marine debris, reducing overfishing and eliminating shark fining practices.
The CBO Foundation through our podcast series will showcase the impacts plastic waste has on our coastlines, tropical islands and reefs. They will seek to assist in marine life conservation and beach clean-up efforts efforts, and help fund outside ocean groups. We accept the cryptocurrencies of Bitcoin and Bitcoin Cash from international contributors who wish to help us address these ocean issues.
The CBO Foundation is not anti-plastic, but it will promote and seek to educate the public on ways to help reduce the daily use of plastic packaged items. To help shift the mindset of consumers and retailers at the source, the local level, through an aggressive platform designed to shift plastic packaging patterns within retail stores, restaurants and with product manufacturers, while promoting a better waste strategy.
The CBO Foundation, together with Integrated Ventures will offer solutions based on realistic expectations and address the negative waste patterns in light of the CoVid-19 increased use of plastic based items and face masks. Their goal is to reverse the damaging waste trends of plastic packaging, Covid face masks and and rubber gloves from reaching our seas. Ocean plastic waste and debris already kills millions of seabirds,
fish and marine life each year needlessly.
Together we can effect a meaningful change in consumption and waste plastic management habits. The collective goal of our Founders Club members is to engage everyone directly regarding the ocean and plastic waste issues, offer solutions and reusable products. To promote sustainable seafood and waste practices in food and beverage operations, while showcasing the beauty and importance of our oceans and tropical reefs. Join us in these efforts if you can.
