Team fundraising for WasteAid

"Although blockchain technology and waste management may appear to have different purposes, in reality they are both about empowering communities and creating sustainable livelihoods, at scale.” - says Nick Jones, Co-founder of Zumo

At Zumo, we feel as passionate about protecting and enhancing our environment as we do about cryptocurrency. We proudly support WasteAid - a young, dynamic and independent charity, based in the UK but with global reach.

WasteAid shares waste management and recycling skills in the world’s poorest places, helping to improve people’s health and livelihoods and preventing plastic from entering our oceans.

To help  WasteAid’s incredible work, team Zumo is attempting a virtual walk from Edinburgh, Scotland to Yaoundé, Cameroon, where WasteAid has one of its projects.

The challenge

This challenge is no mean feat, with a staggering distance of approximately 3,680 miles between the two locations, but we are confident that as a team we will be able to go the distance and we are hoping to raise the equivalent of ten Ethers (approx. £3,200) along the way.

Please cheer us on and give generously to help WasteAid to do its work.

Thank you,

Team Zumo

Our convertible debit card

In line with our commitment to reduce waste, we will create a ‘virtual debit card’, which we encourage all users to sign up to when it becomes available.

Physical cards will be available but there will be a small levy on these, the net proceeds of which will go directly to WasteAid to help to fund its work in fighting plastic pollution.

In addition, in 2021 we will introduce the ability for our customers to make micro-donations with every transaction, directly via the Zumo wallet.  In the meantime, you can give to WasteAid by donating directly via their website.
