Chillin Chameleons is not only a unique art community, but they are also passionate about protecting our world’s oceans. Through the use of NFT blockchain technology, they are creating more than 10,000 art pieces and donating a significant portion of the funds to support the non-profit organization Pro2tect. This partnership aims to tackle the global plastics issue we are facing today. The contributions of the Chillin Chameleons community and the innovative efforts of Pro2tect will disrupt the paradigm of what a sustainable environment should look like.
As of now, our world has not come up with a cohesive, adequate disposal solution for plastics and waste. This is a major threat affecting our environment. While cleaning the oceans and beaches is crucial for the ecosystem, founder Darren Fryer of Pro2tect plans to use innovative solutions for prevention. Their goal is to install the first Pyrolysis plant in Hawaii, allowing them to decompose plastics at high temperatures and turn them into biofuel. “This can all be made possible with the contribution of our Chillin Chameleon community. A community that is based around unity and giving back!” says Kellan Ness of the Chillin Chameleons.
With the help of their artist Nelson “Nell” Ortiz Jr (@fullnellart), they will launch the first phase of Chillin Chameleons. During their Phase I launch, every Chameleon buyer will receive, in addition, a PDF on how to live a more eco-friendly life provided by Pro2tect. A select number of Chameleon holders will also qualify to receive merch from the Pro2tect Eco Store. The most exciting part of Chillin Chameleon’s launch is their Hawaiian Vacation giveaway. Once all the NFTs are minted, 10 lucky Chillin Chameleon holders will be selected for a free trip to Hawaii to help Pro2tect with beach clean-up efforts and relaxation.
Chillin Chameleon’s innovative products and designs using blockchain technology have been an inspiration. With the help of numerous influencers supporting the cause, they have a reach of over 20 million supporters. As Kellan guides his team, keeping a positive mindset to boost morale is incredibly important to him. It’s the only way to keep the team straight and stay focused on their objective of cleaning up the ocean. For him, true confidence comes from surviving risk.
As the success of the organization grows, so will the value of their NFT chameleons. With the growth of Chillin Chameleons, Pro2tect benefits as well. And Kellan is all in, with no holding back. Seeing a clear path ahead, he does not deny fear, but views it as an opportunity to learn. “You punch fear in the face and keep putting one foot in front of the other. Life starts at the edge of your comfort zone,” says Kellan.
Chillin Chameleons plans to continue their cause to further help the environment through their NFT drops and potentially create a metaverse. They also plan to support other nonprofits with a passion for creating a cleaner, more sustainable world.
