DOT Community

Saatchi & Saatchi has launched a movement. This movement includes the green beauty of environmentalism, but goes beyond oceans and trees to include hearts and minds.

We call it True Blue. True Blue is about the best interest of the planet and the best interest of its inhabitants. It’s about the health, growth and future of communities and cultures.

It is personal action and human impact.

True Blue starts with a DOT: People Doing One Thing that they care about, that makes them feel good, that has a positive impact on the world. A DOT is a personal sustainability practice, a small change in a daily routine. A small victory over apathy.

Over time, one DOT inevitably leads to another. And ultimately, connecting a billion DOTs around the world reveals a bigger picture, a better world.

Enter Your DOT here

Each person is encouraged to choose one thing to pursue regularly. It can be anything from cycling to work or doing laundry with cold water. We call this DOT - Do One Thing. One person's DOT may stand alone, but connect a billion DOTs together and you'll see a movement of change happening.

Help us reach our goal of 1 billion people practicing personal sustainability through Do One Thing (DOT).

    Kiyana M.W. Turner: I have several "dot's". Here is one: Compost fruits, veggies and coffee grounds that would otherwise be thrown in the trash. My husband is against having a compost machine or a pile of compost, so I bury things in two old in-ground planters in our backyard. I chopped and buried a pumpkin in the planters and now we have a small pumpkin patch. Our rosé bushes really enjoy the coffee grounds. Giving from that which you have taken is the true circle of life!!! I love it!!!
