By 2050 there will be more plastic in the ocean than fish.

If we don’t take action now, our oceans will be flooded with plastic. The best solution is to stop using plastic, the immediate solution is to block it at the source. One thing is clear: not acting will result in very negative consequences for every single species.

While all of us are responsible for the plastic in our oceans, most of it is eventually discharged by 5 countries.

Corporates sell cheap plastic products to booming, crowded places where folks aren’t always equipped to handle the waste. Living standards rise, people buy more, but the trash systems can’t keep up.

80% of this plastic
comes from rivers and streams.

When plastic waste isn’t managed correctly, it often gets washed away by rain or wind, finding its way into our rivers and streams. These waterways, like nature’s highways, carry the plastic from our cities and towns, all the way to the ocean.

Got it yet? By targeting rivers and streams in just five 5 countries, we could stop half of the ocean-bound plastic.

Dots.eco is assembling a task force of individuals, NGO’s, companies, national organizations, and local communities in order to stop this plastic at the source, and ensure our success in The Philippines, Malaysia, India, Indonesia, and China.

Ocean protection FAQ

What is the Ocean Five-O initiative?

The Ocean five-O initiative is a task force committed to reducing 50% of the world’s ocean plastic. By harnesing our casual digital actions, we aim to stop plastic coming from the top 5 plastic-emitting countries, from reaching the ocean. The countries we are focusing on are The Philippines, Malaysia, India, Indonesia, and China.

Our approach with Ocean Five-O revolves around combating plastic pollution by concentrating on areas where our efforts can make the most significant difference. Our partners collaborate closely with local communities to enable the construction of low-tech barriers and coordinate clean-up activities. This prevents plastic from finding its way into oceans and waterways. What’s unique is that our partners don’t just tackle the issue directly – they also aim to empower local economies through these initiatives.

Our environmental partners focus on the entire lifecycle of plastic waste. From its collection to treatment, recycling, and proper disposal, our partners ensure that plastic never reaches the ocean. This comprehensive strategy combines community involvement, waste management, and sustainable practices to effectively address plastic pollution and safeguard marine ecosystems. Through these collective efforts, we strive to create a lasting impact on the health of our oceans.

Plastic has become a major environmental issue due to its non-degradable nature. When plastic enters the ocean, it is extremely difficult to locate and retrieve, often sinking to the seabed or degrading into micro-plastics. Through the Ocean five-O initiative, we aim to tackle this issue at its source by picking up plastic in rivers, and beaches. 

All our environmental partners are vetted thoroughly to ensure maximum transparency and impact. Additionally, once eco-rewards are implemented and redeemed, end-users will receive a trackable certificate where they can check the status of the plastic clean-ups.

Our partners include Oceans Integrity, SEE Turtles, Plastic Fischer, and Green Worms. These organizations share our commitment to a cleaner, plastic-free ocean.
