SMALL CHANGE FOR A BIG DIFFERENCE

Saving the planet may seem like a daunting task, but if we all start with just one small, environmentally friendly act, we can collectively make a huge difference!

Braam is challenging everyone to get involved in the race against time that our precious planet is facing and “Do One Thing” to make a positive difference to the future of our planet.

WHY DOT?

DOT, which stands for DOne Thing, is a simple acronym that is so much more than a trend, a fad or a catchphrase. These three little letters boldly aim to unite the world in the hope that, together, we can still save our planet. By globally connecting like-minded individuals through a single website and app, the DOT movement encourages anyone who is willing to just Do One Thing to protect and preserve our planet Earth from further destruction and harm.

 So, how can one person, Doing One Thing, possibly have an impact on saving the planet. The DOT challenge is based on the premise that, over time, little things can make a big difference; and as individuals, we each have the power to make small changes on a daily basis that, collectively, can make our planet healthy, green and sustainable again. The DOT movement encourages and challenges you to make planet-saving changes (known as DOTs), which can be implemented immediately, most likely won’t cost you anything and, in fact, will probably save you money, all while helping to protect and preserve the environment. DOTs are as simple as making lifestyle changes or breaking bad habits – such as turning off the tap when brushing your teeth. Think about it. If you saved, for instance, 1 litre of water every day by turning off the tap when brushing your teeth, and you got your family and friends to do the same, and they, in turn, got all of their family and friends to do the same, in a short time, together (collectively) you would have saved thousands of litres of water. And all by making a small, simple lifestyle change, which didn’t cost you a thing, saved you money and of course, more importantly, precious water.

HOW DO WE AFFECT THE CHANGE OUR PLANET EARTH SO DESPERATELY NEEDS

The DOTs encompass four vital categories, namely Water, Waste, Conservation and Energy. You can action one DOT or many DOTs – it’s entirely up to you how much of an impact you want to make on the world. The lifestyle changes, or DOTs, that you decide to act on, can be shared across social platforms with friends and family. And, you can even challenge your friends and family to complete the same DOTs as you have. Once you have completed one DOT per category, you unlock the ability to submit your own DOT, since you might already be doing something that positively impacts the longevity of our planet. This gives everyone else in the world an opportunity to action your DOT. Points are allocated to you each time somebody acts on one of your DOTs, enabling you to climb the Global Earth Champion Leader Board. See how you compare to your friends, family and neighbours, and even how your suburb, town, city or country compares globally. It’s all about encouraging positive lifestyle changes and having the information at your fingertips on how to go about it. Welcome to the planet-saving global movement and app: DOT – what is the One Thing you are going to Do first?
