The Sandbox is a virtual world where players can build, own, and monetize their gaming experiences in the Ethereum blockchain using SAND, the platform’s utility token. The vision is to offer a deeply immersive metaverse in which players can create virtual worlds and games collaboratively and without central authority.
The Sandbox has developed a Zero Carbon plan to address the environmental impact of NFTs. This commitment to addressing the environmental impact has led The Sandbox to offer Layer 2 solutions for their users, purchasing of carbon removal and offset projects, as well as supporting forest restoration initiatives.
As of June 28th, 2021 the company has retired a total of 550 tonnes of carbon offset credits (across Offsetra and other partners) and will continue its ongoing efforts to make a real impact in the physical world.
The Sandbox wants to set the standard for transparency and best practices in the world of NFTs and encourages a healthy discourse about the tools that can be used to reduce environmental impact and the uses of NFTs and blockchain technology.
200,000kg CO2 is equivalent to:
🍔 50,000 cheeseburgers
🐄 90 cows (annual emissions)
🚙 500,000 miles of driving (average passenger vehicle)
💳 17,667 Ethereum transactions.
By volunteering to offset these emissions, The Sandbox is supporting quality, third-party certified projects with a range of additional social and environmental benefits!
