We’re not cryptic about cryptocurrencies.
We believe that whilst cash fights the climate crisis, cryptocurrencies contribute to it.
Digital currencies make up a higher and higher proportion of transactions globally, including donations to charities, and whilst we are of course very grateful to donors who have chosen to support Cool Earth in this way previously, we no longer accept any forms of cryptocurrency donation and do not endorse any cryptocurrencies, coins or NFTs.
As a climate charity we cannot ignore the growing environmental impact of mined cryptocurrencies. As cryptocurrencies become more widely used, so has their resulting carbon footprint.
We love that you care about our mission to back people living in rainforests to protect it. You can still show that you care in many different ways. If you still would like to support people protecting rainforests, you can donate online here or via a bank transfer using these details.
We hope you respect our decision and are with us in finding more sustainable sources of climate-fighting cash.
