New startup company gives individuals financial incentives to make better choices when it comes to carbon consumption

In the fight against climate change, we have to do all we can to keep the environment and the planet on the right track. Understandably it can be a difficult task for a person to go through their day while also trying to be constantly environmentally conscious, sometimes we need an extra push to get there. A Canadian startup company called Carbon X wants to give people that push by financially rewarding people for making carbon friendly consumer choices. 

Carbon X uses Blockchain technology to offer people new incentives to reduce their carbon footprint. They do this by purchasing carbon offsets, then turning the carbon credits into tokens called CxT. The tokens are then sold to companies who then essentially use them as a reward system for customers who make environmentally sound purchases. Locally grown produce and energy saving washing machines are just some of the examples of products that can earn you tokens. Blockchain comes in as a way for people to keep track of their tokens.

This all comes in the form of a mobile app that can also act a resource for telling people where they buy these environmentally sound products so they keep adding to their token count. Carbon X continues to expand their development and uses the future of digital currency to help solve the environmental concerns we face today.
