Beta testing climate-positive bracelet

June 21, 2019

Thanks for all the thoughts on Negative's bracelet sketches a few weeks ago.

We made a few prototype bracelets based on the feedback. I've been wearing one on my wrist. It's a real conversation starter!

In Oslo, Toronto, and the Bay Area, people ask questions like how much carbon is in it (10 grams), where it comes from (DAC + point source carbon capture), how it's made (prototyped in Menlo Park), is it safe (yes). And personally, a difficult clasp can be a pain in the butt to get on my wrist. This prototype is made with new carbon materials including samples from Carbon Upcycling Technologies and Carbon Engineering.

Check out Climeworks' new service to bury carbon underground in Iceland using direct air capture!

We're looking using this to neutralize the carbon in the manufacturing of the bracelet. What do you think? 


I write a weekly newsletter highlighting the AirMiners community and carbon removal industry.

Every week you’ll get insider perspective and community stories from the cutting edge of carbon removal.

The purpose of this newsletter is to accelerate the carbontech industry by speeding up connections, progress, and coordination. It's ideal for people working in carbon removal already, or beginners who want one individual's perspective. People curious about carbon removal are encouraged to sign up and see what sticks.
