Bounties for the Oceans

The Bounties Network is partnering with ConsenSys Social Impact to address the state of our oceans and incentivize plastic cleanup action on a local and global level.

Some dire stats from the UN:

80% of all pollution in the ocean comes from people on land.
8 million tonnes of plastic per year ends up in the ocean, wreaking havoc on wildlife, fisheries and tourism.

Plastic pollution costs the lives of 1 million seabirds and 100,000 marine mammals per year.

Fish eat plastic, and we eat the fish.

Plastic causes $8 billion in damage to marine ecosystems each year.

With Bounties for the Ocean, we are asking people everywhere to submit verifiable proof of their direct plastic cleanup contribution as a way of fostering widespread and long-term behavioral shift.

Do not depend on centralized organizations, go out there and do it yourselves.
