Flowcarbon, a leading climate technology company creating carbon reduction and removal solutions, announced today the addition of two leading digital art projects, Project GodJira (PG) and Danny Cole’s Creature World, to its climate positive decentralized art collection, Flow3rs. Flow3rs is Flowcarbon’s newly launched collection of 200 works of unique digital art, a significant portion of which will go toward retiring carbon offsets from nature based projects around the world. To offset historic and current emissions from their decentralized art collections and more, Creature World and PG will acquire a commensurate number of carbon credits, which will be offset, on-chain by Flowcarbon.
PG, a unique community driven NFT project and industry leader, has built a community of over 7,000 holders and has created a launch-pad and network to support other NFT projects. In partnership with Flowcarbon, PG will offset more than 700 tons of carbon emissions to become carbon negative and advise other Web2 and Web3 projects on how to offset their emissions in both their NFT and real-world operations.
“As the industry is moving towards becoming more sustainable, this is an opportunity to continue the momentum and encourage NFT projects to offset even more emissions than they are responsible for,” said Shan, PG’s co-founder. “In the post-Merge world, we look forward to continuing to partner with Flowcarbon to have a positive impact on the environment and a better reputation for the NFT community.”
Creature World, an immersive art project and experience started by NYC-based artist Danny Cole, created a popular community around a collection of 10,000 unique pieces of digital artwork. Its blockchain transactions, at about 600 tons of carbon emissions, will be offset in this partnership along with the emissions from Creature World’s live events and art installations. Cole is known for creating magical experiences with his art, and his Creature World collection has sold over $120 million worth of digital art, attracting an engaging community of passionate collectors.
“Creature World’s mission is about making our experience of life magical and that means ensuring that future generations will be able to experience life as we are able to,” said Danny Cole.
The partnership with PG and Creature World illustrates the ability of blockchain technology to unlock and rapidly multiply social impact for Web3 projects, harnessing the power of Web3 to unite communities, artists and collectors around the shared goal of fighting climate change through meaningful art.
“Blockchain has the power to catalyze change for climate action and right the environmental wrongs of legacy proof-of-work systems,” said Dana Gibber, CEO at Flowcarbon. “As the technology becomes more sustainable, NFT projects have the opportunity to not just become carbon neutral, but to support the environment by becoming carbon negative and making a real-world impact.”

Each experience has brought hundreds to thousands of attendees into a unique iteration of the Creature World.
