Our World Solves The Plastic Pollution / Littering Problem
This post was originally published on the Our World blog on 16th January 2018:
As you have noticed the littering and plastic pollution is becoming more and more of a problem in today's world. It seems everywhere you look there is litter piling up no matter where you are in the world. Some parts of the globe have a much bigger problem than others, normally in 3rd world areas.
What is heart breaking is that beautiful places such as Bali & India are being destroyed by more and more litter/plastic pollution. It is sometimes hard to understand when these places appear to be more spiritual where they pray daily at home and in their sacred temples and believe strongly in God and Karma, yet they pollute their lands and seas way more than the west.
What is needed is a mass re-educational program and we feel Our World can be part of that solution.
Our World teaches people the importance of looking after the enviroment as well as their health, other people and their local communities.
The UK Government recently announced a long term plan to tackle plastic solution. The Prime Minister Theresa May said she hopes to abolish plastic pollution by 2042. While this is great news, the planet cannot wait that long, we need to tackle this much quicker. We need strong and firm action NOW.
The Iceland supermarket has announced it will phase out plastic within 5 years, this is more like it, but we feel it can still be done quicker. But at least it is a step in the right direction, for which others we hope will now follow...
One of the goals of Our World is to bring these issues to the forefront and to help raise awareness. We hope Governments will then finally start to listen and put the enviroment and peoples well being first. These should ALWAYS be first, and are much more important than GDP and money for what is the point in having money or a strong economy if there is no planet left?
Of course we understand you need a strong economy to provide the funding needed to invest in the enviroment and peoples health, but right now a lot of money is being wasted in areas that are not as big a priority. The biggest is funding wars and the military. If all the money we spend each year funding the military was spent on solving our current environmental crisis we could quickly start to reverse the damage we have done to our beautiful planet.
The software industry has the power to transform lives through engaging people with innovative products that help them to grow and develop. Recent popular examples include health apps, mindfulness apps and mind training games.
We wish to take this to the next level and help make the world a better place by using technology for good, by bringing people together and to support, guide and educate everyone on how we can all live happier, fulfilling lives and at the same time how we can help save our planet.
We will do this by creating a suite of next gen apps & games using the latest cutting edge technology such as Virtual Reality, Augmented Reality, Real-time emotional feedback, face/voice recognition, motion detection and so much more. People learn at a young age how to act and behave and this shapes the future generations and the world they will create. Due to the majority of games these days involving violence, sex, gambling, drugs & crime, this is conditioning the youth of today to the sort of world they will create tomorrow.
With the advent of Virtual Reality now making these violent games even more immersive and realistic where the boundaries between games and reality is shrinking by the day, it is imperative we take some social and moral responsibility and start using technology to help create a better world by improving people’s life’s as well as respecting the environment and planet that sustains us.
Gambling is being forced onto kids more and more in the form of loot boxes where real money is asked for to receive a random prize and now its got so bad that money is actually needed to progress within the game. Everything seems to be geared around how much people can be exploited and how much money can be sucked out of them, this is even more wrong for kids. Read more on our previous post about this here.
We wish to bring people together, build online communities, encourage people to reach out and help strangers for the greater good of all. To encourage people to come and work together and to show how everyone benefits if they put their differences aside and start all rowing together. It will model the real world and also act as a simulation and training environment for how to make the real world a better place.
We wish to reach the kids who are glued to their phones and consoles and never go outside, this game will encourage them to get out into parks and interact with people in fun creative ways face to face instead of through their phones.
We are building the evolved benevolent version of the OASIS featured in the popular Ready Player One novel, which Spielberg is currently shooting the film for. This will be out in March in time for our prototype to be released, when everyone will be wanting to play the game of the movie.
It only seems to be a week or two before another terrorist attack or mass shooting or disaster after disaster. How much more suffering does there have to be before the people unite together to say enough is enough?
So what will be your legacy?
Do you want to be in on the ground floor of the upcoming platform that will take the world by storm?
The platform that is going to win many rewards for the groundbreaking work it will do. Do you want to be a hero of your own life story?
Want to tell your kids and grandkids that you helped make it happen and go down in history as a hero?
What kind of world do you want to leave to the next generation?
Want to be part of something greater than yourself?
How can you do your part to create a better world?
This is HOW you do your part... Be the change you wish to see in the world...
So please get in touch and get involved. Contact us on
We would really appreciate if you could donate anything you can afford, even if its just a pound, if everyone did that then we would be able to massively accelerate this very urgent and important project for a world in need right now. I think everyone can justify a pound if it meant saving the world don't you think? It's even better to spend a pound on this project rather than buying a lottery ticket since you have more chance of being hit by a car than winning the jackpot, then even by some fluke you did win, there is no point having millions if there is no world left to enjoy it on.
Think about it...
