Blue is an environmental movie with a difference. It captures the disaster that is microplastics and how they are killing our oceans and us. However it's upbeat about what each of us can do. At the end of the movie there was a simple and effective presentation about what each of us could do the next day, and every day to remove plastic from our lives. No preaching just simple, actionable and repeatable actions. Worth going to watch and learn. https://bluethefilm.org/
Change donations is an exciting donation platform that digitally
connects charities and not for profits with spare change from donors. Irish based donors link debit and credit cards
to the platform, which rounds up their transaction to the next euro and donates
the digital spare change to the causes they care about.
Donors have complete control and can customise their giving
plan by setting weekly or monthly round up limits, choosing to round up only on
select purchases, and splitting roundups across multiple charities. Its free to
100% of the
donation is passed through to the charity.
Tokens for Humanity has recently developed 64 non-fungible token (NFT) artwork collectibles. The NFTs are units of data that certify that a digital asset is unique (in this case digital artwork) and registered on the Ethereum blockchain making their ownership transparent. Recently artists such as Beeple sold one of their digital artworks through NFTs for US$69.3m. Tokens for Humanity sell the NFTs from around $150 to $35,000 with the proceeds donated to animal welfare charities. The major downside to NFTs being used more widely is the carbon-emissions arising from the proof-of-work blockchains. https://probonoaustralia.com.au/news/2021/04/aussie-charity-launches-non-fungible-token-artwork-
