This Earth Day, XYZ is highlighting our green, eco-friendly, and sustainability-focused community members. Previously, we’ve featured non-profit organization ForceofNature.xyz, which is dedicated to helping young people realize their change-making potential in the face of climate change. International award-winning architecture firm MADC.xyz centers innovation and sustainability as the core components of their architectural projects. E-commerce shop PlantsAnimals.xyz helps spread the word about organic and biodynamic natural wine production. In this week’s #WebsiteWednesday, we’ll share a few more standout members of the .xyz community whose websites can serve as an inspiration for focusing on sustainability with your own online presence.
Adaptive.xyz is a modular building system designed for sustainable living. Their innovative solution can turn 200 square feet of fixed space into 800 square feet of usable space through proprietary and automated technology that transforms rooms for various settings. Individual units can be arranged by themselves or stacked vertically and horizontally, creating opportunities for creating multi-use spaces.
The Utah-based company aims to address some of today’s greatest challenges, including housing security and climate change. Housing attainability, particularly within urban centers, can be a challenge in many major cities with limited solutions. The modular housing solution from Adaptive.xyz provides income to property owners and secure housing for tenants. It also addresses climate change concerns. Studies show that nearly 40% of greenhouse gas emissions leading to climate change are attributable to the built environment1. Their solution has been carefully designed for eco-friendly and inclusive living in any region. You can learn more about these innovative transformable living spaces by visiting Adaptive.xyz.
OfficialNFT.xyz is an NFT platform built on the Polygon blockchain network. The platform aims to help artists create, mint and place their NFTs on the platform’s marketplace. OfficialNFT.xyz can also connect your digital art to physical products and market those products together as “digital twins.” The platform works to make it easy to upload art, images, videos, or music. Visitors can browse the marketplace by easy to filter categories such as art, anime, collectibles, and digital twins.
The developers of the NFT platform believe that building a blockchain-based community should have the most minimal impact on our earth as possible. They pledge to purchase carbon off-sets to neutralize their platform’s impact on the Polygon blockchain, where they decided to build. Polygon’s lower carbon footprint makes it an attractive destination for the eco-minded, which contributed to OfficialNFT.xyz’s decision. As the platform further shared in an Instagram post labeling themselves “The Carbon Neutral NFT Marketplace,”
Sole2Soul.xyz is the online home of a family run non-profit organization designed to facilitate the donation of sneakers to underserved youth. The San Francisco Bay-area organization wishes to provide shoes to youth who desire healthier lifestyles. Sole2Soul.xyz proudly provides a platform for a personalized donation experience, where each donor has the opportunity to inspire the recipient.
The organization also provides information on sustainability to further educate the younger generation. They teach that through the reuse and re-purpose of running shoes, a community has the ability to join together and unite to make a difference in today’s youth as well as the world. Sole2Soul.xyz believes the younger generation can empower themselves and help sustain their environment. For more information, you can visit Sole2Soul.xyz.
