Poseidon White Paper empowers consumers to address their impact

Ecosphere+ is partnering with the Poseidon Foundation who are developing a solution, powered by blockchain, to enable anyone to own their carbon footprint. Imagine buying a pair of shoes and being able to address the carbon from those shoes’ production and transportation right when you buy them? This wasn’t possible before: we didn’t have blockchain to immutably and transparently track the carbon, point of sale integrations were cumbersome, and the carbon market only works in tons while a pair of shoes is around 12kg of carbon.

This new carbon currency could make us more climate friendly

If you know something is bad for you but you don’t know how to measure it, how can you reduce it? Take calories, for example. If we want to lose weight, we need to reduce our calorie intake. To do this we can use the information found on packaging and in apps to monitor our calorie intake and adjust to what is healthy. Let’s apply this analogy to the environment. Just as many of us are clogging up our bodies with invisible calories, so every day we clog up our world with invisible greenhouse gases. Wouldn’t it be great if we could count, take control of and reduce our carbon emissions just as we take control of our diets?
