My Drop in the Oceans is a global currency platform founded on the belief that economic and social progress depends on fundamentally changing the way we value nature.
RETURNING VALUE TO NATURE My Drop in the Oceans converts the value of environmental costs into DIO, a complimentary currency for citizens and businesses to use in ways that reward sustainable actions towards positive environmental impact. A MyDIO account enables citizens and businesses to bank with nature, practice smart consumption and be rewarded for their investments in sustainability. By empowering citizens and businesses to acknowledge the value of nature, DIO is uniquely designed to return value to nature one drop at a time.
Nature's wealth is its capital. What we take from nature's capital, when we produce and consume, has a value to human society and a cost to nature. Many of nature's costs are hidden, not accounted for by consumers, businesses or governments, instead revealing themselves as deficits through the degradation of ecosystems.
We need to make a fundamental shift from seeing nature as a resource to seeing it as a provider of resources, in doing so recognising that our lifestyles bear a cost to nature that needs to be compensated.
