Celebrating Earth Day (2022) – A Message from SPE
Updated: Apr 9
Although we have a specific day to celebrate this occasion, it’s fair to agree that this celebration shouldn’t be relegated to just one day. As things stand now, we can’t expect our current ecological crises to be resolved within a day, even if every single person on the planet puts a 100% effort into the environmental activities laid out for the occasion. This is why that same level of effort should be carried over in the days after, with the same conviction on why we celebrate Earth Day in the first place. This is just a personal opinion, and we simply wanted to put this out there. Hopefully, many of you find this relatable in one way or another.
Anyway, the theme of this year’s Earth Day is “Invest in Our Planet”. Seems fitting, considering how we’re integrating the welfare of our planet into our growing roster of innovations and breakthroughs. SPE’s balance of traditional carbon sequestration alongside the emerging cryptocurrency industry is one example… in an era where eco-consciousness is put at the forefront of every new development. The purpose of these developments is to ensure a better way of living, but it will never be fulfilled if these developments are made at the cost of the planet. That is why innovation and the environment should be intertwined if we’re ever to move forward while also overcoming the hurdles that come our way – be it climate-related, financial, and even social and humanitarian.
One of those hurdles is the reluctance of seeing the good that the cryptocurrency industry has to offer for the environment. With all the skepticism directed towards the potential environmental “harm” that the industry is seemingly inflicting, the reluctance of those expressing genuine concern about it is quite understandable. “Can it be possible to make this industry green?”, you may ask. Well, the answer is yes.
You must all know how carbon credits work by now. They are commodities generated from tangible carbon sequestration efforts that can be used to offset one’s carbon emissions. These transactions can also take place in the crypto market and even be used to offset the emissions of those existing in that sector. That means carbon offsetting is indeed possible, even to the point of achieving a carbon-neutral and possibly a carbon-negative status. Don’t take just my word for it. Our partners – Phantasma and various others that you will see on our new website– have already become certifiably carbon negative. If more players in the blockchain follow their example, the industry as a whole will certainly be an eco-conscious sphere that will guarantee public confidence and investment. “Investment”, which we know is a keyword for this year’s Earth Day.
Rest assured, we at SPE will not only maintain our core objectives in promoting and expanding carbon sequestration efforts such as planting trees (after all, we’re propping up nurseries left and right in our quest to plant over 1 billion trees), but we will also pioneer the means and opportunities in making a green cryptocurrency possible. A future driven by an environmental emphasis, provided for and by the community in any part of the world, and its benefits shared throughout all walks of life – that is how we can invest in our planet.
And with that, we wish you all a prosperous Earth Day. Let’s put in all the effort we’ve got to ensure the payoff that each of us, and the world, rightfully deserves.
