With CO2oons, we’ve created an IP that will first launch as an NFT collection and then evolve into so much more. We will partner and collaborate with the world’s leading brands to create consumer products, educational initiatives, films, serial content, events and more. We want our creatures everywhere, raising awareness and inspiring action not just from NGOs, activists and a small group of businesses, but from the widest possible audience. We believe that by making conversation fun, we will be able to reach a wider audience and capture more people’s interest in a more personal and active way.
