Origins Collection: 1020 carbonized NFTs dropping soon

Shop the Origins Collection to Support Climate Action on the Ground

NFTs live mainly in the digital world. But unlike other projects, our NFTs are rooted in real-world, climate-positive action.

The Origins Collection will allow you to offset your yearly emissions by funding carbon removal projects from around the world.

But that’s not all our projects do. To find out what makes the Origins Collection one of the most meaningful NFT projects out there, read on…

We’re Funding the Preservation of Ancient Peat Swamp Forests in Indonesia

Rimba Raya Biodiversity Reserve, Central Kalimantan, Indonesia

Quick Facts

  • 3.5 million tonnes of carbon emissions reductions per year.
  • Protects 84,881 ha of high conservation value tropical peat swamp forest.
  • World’s largest REDD+ project in terms of avoided emissions.
  • First and only project to achieve all 17 SDGs.

A Closer Look

Peat swamp forests are vital natural stores of carbon. They’re found in forests where water has nowhere to drain and traps organic matter in dense, wet swamps and marshes. Over thousands of years, leaves, dead wood, and other organic matter, unable to decompose, form a unique substance called peat.

Peat forests can store up to 20 times more than nearby lowland forests and yet, tragically, the proportion of forested peat swamp in Peninsular Malaysia, Sumatra, and Borneo has dropped from 77 percent to 36 percent.

If it wasn’t for the Rimba Raya Biodiversity Reserve, an area the size of Singapore would’ve been converted into palm oil monoculture long ago. Thankfully however, the project has prevented their destruction and stopped a colossal amount of carbon from being released into the atmosphere.

The project’s other activities — like running the world’s largest Orangutan sanctuary and developing livelihood programmes for local villages — contribute to every one of the 17 SDGs. Now that’s impressive!

Help Us Halt Deforestation of the Amazon in Brazil

Pacajai REDD+ Project, Pará, Brazil

Quick Facts

  • 264,116 tonnes of carbon reduction per year.
  • 123,067 ha of protected rainforest.
  • Supports health, education, and infrastructure for local communities.
  • Agroforestry training, funding for small enterprises, and distribution of safe cookstoves.

 

A Closer Look

The so-called ‘Lungs of the World’ are under serious threat. Between January and April 2022 a record-breaking 1,025 km2 was cleared from the Brazilian Amazon. Spurred on by a pro-deforestation government and incentivised by profit and poverty, conservation is one of the few defences against the threat of logging and ‘slash and burn’ agriculture.

Thankfully, at least in the 123,000+ hectares of land covered by the Pacajai project, we can be sure the rainforest is protected. But protecting the forest is just one of this project’s objectives.

To ensure long-term success, legal property rights have been secured for local people, ensuring buy-in. Alongside this, the local community has been educated in sustainable agroforestry methods, while the distribution of safer cookstoves has meant that forest fires are less likely.

Give Congolese Locals an Alternative To Logging

Mai Ndombe REDD+ Project

Quick Facts

  • 5.7 million tonnes of carbon reduction per year.
  • 229,645 ha of forest protected.
  • Employment of local people, medical facilities provided.

A Closer Look

Where there are trees, the threat of deforestation looms. In the world’s 2nd largest tropical rainforest, the Congo, new roads stretch deeper into the jungle and open up swathes of land to loggers and local farmers eager to profit.

Located near Lake Ndombe in the west of the Congo Basin, this project focuses on using revenues from carbon credit sales to halt logging and offer alternative employment to locals. Over 400 local people have been employed and funding has been provided for a range of vital medical infrastructure for local remote communities, such as mobile clinics, vaccination services, and HIV testing centres. On top of that, it has built 6 schools serving over 3,000 students and supplied over 8,500 learning materials.

NFTs For A Fairer Future

Our carbonised NFTs fund CO2 removal and progress towards the Sustainable Development Goals.

So if you’re ready to start taking action to reduce your environmental impact, the Origins Collection can help you do just that.

Each NFT offsets a bundle of 8 carbon credits taking them out of circulation, and keeping them out of the atmosphere permanently.

Did we mention that our NFTs also look fantastic? By harnessing cutting-edge AI and the boundless creativity of our illustrator Nidresh Shrestha, we’ve created artworks you’ll be proud to show off anywhere on social media or in the metaverse.
