Buy & Craft Carbon Offset vIRLs
to Score NEW Exclusive WAX NFT Collectibles
To celebrate Earth Week, we’re encouraging our community to unlock the true value of WAX Carbon Offset vIRLs to save the planet — one tree sapling at a time.
It’s officially Earth Week, and to celebrate we’ve organized a campaign to give you an opportunity to do good for the planet and for your WAX Cloud Wallet.
When you purchase Carbon Offset vIRLs® and craft them, you’ll unlock the true value the NFTs hold — planting real trees for a cleaner and more sustainable planet.
Starting on April 21 at 1PM EST through April 28 at 1PM EST get a 15% discount on Carbon Offset NFT’s for Earth Week.
Available in six (6) incredible NFT rarities with five (5) distinctive cards with values that are displayed in dollars. Every dollar a card represents counts as a single tree sapling planted by the National Forest Foundation.
For example, a $5 NFT equates to five tree saplings planted.
Please note — you may love your Carbon Offset vIRLs, but it’s only when you craft them that the magic happens — triggering a blockchain transaction that leads to the National Forest Foundation planting a fresh tree sapling that will live for decades to come.
Craft Your NFTs to Receive a Special NFT
After crafting your Carbon Offset NFT, you will receive a special NEW NFT collectible in one of six (6) rarities including:
These exclusive collectibles were inspired by the original collection released in August 2021, which was designed by renowned Swiss artist and illustrator Krel.
“This work I’ve created for WAX has pushed me to think differently,” says Krel. “Carbon Offset vIRLs maintain a duality between reality and digitalism, which is something that’s important to me. I had the freedom to experiment with things technically and create on an international scale. It has been an interesting and rewarding experience!”

What Are Carbon Offset vIRL NFTs?
WAX’s Carbon Offset vIRL NFT collection was developed with the intention to bring awareness and actionable opportunities for the community to help our planet. It is the world’s first fully tradable NFT collection that gives you the power to buy, sell and trade while reducing your carbon footprint by planting tree saplings in real life.
Since launching in 2021, more than 30,000 NFTs have been purchased so far, however only about 3,000 trees have been planted from NFTs being composted. This tells us that our community of collectors love their investment and want to hold onto it for the long haul (which is great) but defeats the purpose of the collection.
Carbon Offset vIRLs were designed to be composted to rebuild forests. Why? Because reforestation is one of the most important and accessible ways that people can contribute to solving the challenges of climate change.
