BlueSkye Foundation is a humanitarian group of waste management professionals concerned about the consequences of unmanaged landfills in poor countries. We have seen the alarming state of poorly managed or unmanaged landfills and the situation is getting worse by day. Together we have over 100 years of expertise on the field and we have been running large global projects with international financiers, charities and funds. We feel that our expertise is needed to heal the world, as a charitable non-profit organization -not a business- as the time is running out. It is clear that the climate is worsening day by day. Without action, the world will be done –as we know it- in the next 100 – 150 years. BlueSkye Foundation is taking action and together with our partners we can really make concrete changes, so that the world we leave for our children and grandchildren is still liveable.
The world today as we know it is no longer sustainable. Extreme heat waves, cyclones, tornados, tsunamis, and earthquakes are more frequent than ever. We can’t deny the fact that climate and environmental issues have evolved with the technology growth that we have today. As humans advance, the nature gets destroyed and problems arise. Billions of people populate the earth, and we have already seen massive immigration waves. We have seen the relationship between climate change and the humanitarian problems getting worse. Our global team of scientists have predicted that the really ‘bad’ incidents are still to come, if nothing is done right now.
There are no second chances on earth when it gets destroyed, or even if the global warming proceeds 100 years with this +1.5c/2.0c per 10 years growth rate. When life in vastly populated areas in Asia, Africa, America, and Australia is made impossible, people in these areas need to be housed elsewhere.
Although NASA claims to discover multiple earth-like planets, we are still not sure of what awaits humanity when our planet is destroyed. We understand that we can make little sacrifices in our lifestyles for the improvement of the community. But how long can our planet earth wait if bigger and concrete action is not taken now?
BlueSkye Foundation is founded in Geneva, Switzerland for the sole purpose of helping our world, its nature and people to survive. We believe in transparency and equality in every step of our operations. We don’t blame, we will just take care of what is imperative right now, the waste.
Everyone can be a volunteer. Also You.
With BlueSkye.Life people choose to volunteer for a variety of reasons. Everyone has seen the change in our environment; air quality, water quality, refugee streams and suffering children in 3rd world countries. For some being an volunteer offers the chance to give something back to the nature or make a difference to the people around the problematic areas. For others it provides an opportunity to develop new skills or build on existing experience and knowledge. Regardless of the motivation, what unites all of the BlueSkye.Life volunteers is that they find the work challenging and rewarding and see the results of their hard work.
How we help ?
We are here to take care of the solid waste and cumulated plastic problem by turning it to “renewable energy”. When clean energy, electricity, is formed without burden to the nature by burning the waste safely, the income from sales is cumulated. The cumulated income is invested to new treatment facilities and developing the area where it was formed.
According to a 2016 plastic industry report, the world’s plastic production has grown by 8.6% per year since 1950: from 1.5 million tonnes annually to over 330 million tonnes annually. As of today, some 9 billion metric tons of plastics have been produced and spread around the world. To the plastics industry, this is a “global success story.” For Earth’s beleaguered ecosystems, for all non-human species, and for anyone paying attention, plastics have been a deadly disaster.
According to a report published in Science Advances – from researchers at the University of California, University of Georgia, and Woods Hole Institute in Massachusetts – only about 9% of plastic has been recycled, 12 % has been incinerated (polluting the air with toxic gases), and the remaining 79 %, remains in the environment. If current production and waste management trends continue, by 2050, there will be 12 billion tonnes of plastic in natural environments. That’s the weight of 100 million blue whales – 5,000 times the actual blue whale population left on Earth.
Plastics are closely correlated with economic growth. Multinational corporations often impose plastic packaging on poor nations that may lack recycling systems to deal with them. Because of the fundamental chemistry of most commonly used plastics, they are not biodegradable, so they accumulate as virtually permanent contamination in Earth’s ecosystems.
