WHAT IS A CIRCULAR ECONOMY
MARINE LIFE - This humpback whale is one example of a magnificent animal that is at the mercy of human activity. Humans are for the most part unaware of the harm their fast-lane lifestyles are causing. We aim to change that by doing all we can to promote ocean literacy.
A circular economy is one that is sustainable for future generations without causing harm to planet earth. The economics of a truly circular economy encompasses:
Affordable Finance to eliminate financial slavery from
excessive profiteering, to make things happen
* Transport security based on near zero carbon land and ocean vehicles
Waste recycling that is effective to eliminate land fill and
Where our Foundation is all about conservation for a truly Circular Economy, we will be looking at ways of encouraging policy makers, corporations and the general public to adopt a sustainable lifestyle. Where the surface of planet earth is two thirds water, we will be concentrating on our oceans, looking at land based issues as they affect marine life and the ocean economy.
TAKING THE BULL BY HE HORNS - The EU have been leading the charge for cleaner oceans for a number of years. In 2008 they created European Maritime Day, that has turned into an event to share ideas and stimulate innovation. The next event will be hosted in Bulgaria at Burgas in 2018.
The Cleaner Oceans Foundation will be publishing news articles on this website and compiling a list of Circular Economy projects in the hope of stimulating:
* Policy Makers
* Innovators, and
* Responsible Corporations
To incubate ideas today, for a brighter global economy tomorrow.
As a priority we must halt the build up of trash in our back yard with effective Ocean Regeneration programs. Examples of trash that is unacceptable is the Arctic beaches, where polar bears have become garbage reliant, and Henderson Island that is uninhabited yet awash with plastic.
