Clear Blue Oceans Foundation
The Clear Blue Oceans Foundation Inc. (CBO Foundation) is a private Hawaiian non-profit organization. Although CBO Foundation’s primary mission and objectives are clearly rooted in environmental ocean issues, it is not a traditional environmental organization. It was designed to serve as a self-funded Hybrid non-profit that merges its awareness
initiatives and programs into one or more for profit ventures to deliver the messages that need to be heard. It is NOT currently a U.S. 501 c(3) tax-exempt organization, nor does it accept tax deductible donations. It may seek 501 status later.
The CBO Foundation’s primary goals include, but are not limited to, addressing the growing global single-use plastic packaging waste crisis, increasing awareness of ocean plastic waste in particular and marine debris. To showcase the impacts this waste has on our coastlines, tropical islands and tropical reefs, our marine life, plus help reduce overfishing and shark fining practices.
The CBO Foundation is not anti-plastic, but it will promote and seek to educate the public on efforts to help reduce their 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 change plastic packaging patterns within stores, restaurants and product manufacturers.
The CBO Foundation, together with Integrated Ventures, its Signature Partner, will offer solutions based on realistic expectations and address the negative social patterns that must be changed to reverse the damaging waste trends plastic packaging represents. Patterns that kill millions of fish, seabirds and marine life annually.
Together we can and must drive a meaningful change in the consumption and plastic packaging
waste disposal habits. Integrated Ventures is proud to help accomplish this goal, and will share the CBO Foundation literature within its businesses.
