We are trying to visualize and sell the results of the activities of the Food Circulation Action through art works using NFT, where for about six months from the end of May to October 2022, bring compost made from food waste from each household using LFC compost to the vegetable garden and enjoy growing and harvesting vegetables.
This is an unprecedented proof of concept by Tsunaga-LOOOP's co-creation partner, Dentsu Group Inc. to promote co-creation through “NFT-type collective creativity” by digitizing and managing credentials of individual eco-activity achievements using Web 3.0 technology.
Participants acquire puzzle-piece NFTs through their activities, and a picture is completed when the prescribed pieces are collected together by the entire community. One piece is awarded when the composting of one composting bag (estimated 20 kg* of food waste) is completed, and the completed picture is also a certificate of completion of 9 compost bags (estimated 180 kg* of food waste), a work of art created by the entire community. If one auction is successful, we plan to distribute the proceeds according to the participants' activity results.
(* One LFC compost bag is estimated to compost approximately 20 kg of food waste per composting substrate)
It is surprisingly difficult to visualize the results of local environmental activities and to provide financial incentives. This demonstration experiment aims to visualize the level of environmental contribution at the community level and to provide financial rewards for the activities, which will lead to the expansion of the scale of activities and the creation of fun and sustainable environmental contribution activities.
Tsunaga-LOOOP will continue to study the commercialization of this project after this demonstration experiment, aiming to realize a society where individuals can engage more proactively in their daily activities, where various incentives can be provided and community formation can be promoted, by digitizing the results of activities that contribute to solving environmental issues into digital identities.
