Founded in 2015, The TRÄTO Foundation was developed by a group of activists motivated to change the way our school systems operate by implementing strategies and educational lectures to empower students to protect our oceans. We have created practical standards and protocols for schools to “GO B.L.U.E.” all of which serve to bring awareness to ocean conservation. By affording schools the opportunity to teach educational lectures, go on environmentally focused field-trips and to learn small life-style changes, students can implement these tools to make their individual impact. We strive to create a empowered culture where our younger generations adopt these practices and lead by example for future generations so they too can bare witness to a healthy and thriving ocean. If we choose to not take action and change the way history is repeating itself, our oceans will be so full of trash our children will be at risk entering it. More terrifying, the decline in wild fish will leave us with no other option than eating farmed fish. It is time to reach our kids and teach them why it is important to protect the oceans and more pressing, how to do so.
Our vision is for schools to adopt these principles and earn the title of being a nationally accredited B.L.U.E. Certified institution. With this certification each school takes the stance against our oceans demise and works diligently to do their part in protecting it. Please see a list of standards your school must meet to earn this title.
