The BLUECOUP project is in its infancy. The task of outfitting ribbons on all of the flagpoles worldwide is a daunting one, but our expectation is that the more people participate as individuals or communities, the more achievable the goal becomes.

This website and social media resources are being developed that will provide information to those who want to participate in this project, including ways to show your efforts and successes and inspire others to do the same.

Here's what you can do to help

  • Attach a blue ribbon to the top of your flagpole or decorative banner.
  • Take a photo or make a video of your ribbons and we'll add them to the website. Contact us:
  • Encourage friends, neighbors and businesses in your area to do the same.
  • SHARE – if you find something on the site that you like, share it online.

In the works - ribbon resources

Soon we will have instructions and resources for creating your own sky-blue ribbons. We are currently looking for a flag producer who can provide online ordering.

In addition, we are hoping to create more social media opportunities and are planning for the creation of an online community of adopters so you can share your experiences and we can help you implement your ideas. Ideas welcome.

"Once a photograph of the Earth, taken from outside, is availableā€¦a new idea as powerful as any in history will be let loose."
