About Us

Five Minute Foundation is a global movement -- generating awareness, knowledge, and practices that create innovative solutions to address the problem of plastic pollution in our oceans and help regenerate the planet.

The mission of 5 Minute Foundation is to educate and raise awareness about the importance of preserving the environment and the effect of plastic pollution in communities around the world through advocacy, youth empowerment and educative-communication campaigns.  Also, through beach clean-ups, the promotion of a more sustainable lifestyle, partnerships and blue economy projects,  the 5 Minute Foundation will help reduce humans’ impact on the environment.

Ocean Heroes

Ocean Heroes is an educational program designed for elementary school students that teaches the importance of conscious consumption, the global impact our oceans have in day to day life, and the negative effects of plastic pollution. 5MBCF will work with schools around the world by providing students with an in-class, multimedia educational experience. 5MBCF has launched pilot programs in Costa Rica and Puerto Rico which have been very well received. 5MBCF believes that education at a young age will create sustainable and powerful change in the community since education also has a bottom-up approach.5MBCF received a Commitment to Action with the help of theClinton Foundation which has already helped fund and implement the Ocean Heroes program in 23 schools in San Juan, Puerto Rico, allowing 5MBCF to educate over 3,000 students.
