ēko Villages of Hope
ēko Villages of Hope supports individuals with housing and food scarcity by providing sustainable and durable building solutions.
For housing, ēko makes high-end living solutions with recycled shipping containers and rapidly deploys them to areas affected by natural disasters. To date, ēko Villages of Hope have deployed 20 homes to western Kentucky—an area that was impacted by a massive tornado in 2021. ēko strives to help the community on a path to recovery with the deployment of 200 homes.
ēko Solutions also helps these communities create sustainable, controlled growing environments through ēko Farms. ēko Farms is building vertical farms for schools as a form of education and agricultural solutions.
The Scotty Michael Foundation
The Scotty Michael Foundation is a nonprofit organization tackling a very sensitive issue – assisting families after the sudden and tragic loss of a baby. The Scotty Michael Foundation helps these families get through their worst days with special attention and support. Through donations, LBX was able to donate to Scotty Boxes, which gives parents resources for grief, funding support groups and funding hospital bills up to $1,000.
Beyond Type 1
Beyond Type 1 is a philanthropic nonprofit providing platforms, programs, grants and other resources for uniting individuals with diabetes. Bridging the gap between the diabetic community with modern solutions, the charity is improving lives across the globe. This relatively young charity (founded in 2015), educates and advocates a cure for Type 1 diabetes. But Beyond Type 1 doesn’t discriminate; it offers centers and programs for those who suffer from Type 2 diabetes. Beyond Type 1 supports those with diabetes, from the individual to family and friends. 100% of every dollar supports global efforts on a cure. To donate, visit here.
The Heart Water Foundation
The Heart Water Foundation, founded in 2017, provides clean water for global communities to drink. Their shop sells fun, purple water bottles for anyone to buy online. Groundwater can often contain lethal elements such as arsenic, which poisons impacted communities who access the water. The Heart Water sources the rainwater 100% from clouds and provides it to these communities. More than 20% of profits from every Heart Water bottle provides clean water for people across the world. To donate, visit here.

About Land Betterment Exchange – LBX
The Land Betterment Exchange process enables corporations and sponsors needing carbon offsets to achieve their carbon neutral plan to keep their funds local benefiting their community and environment while still acquiring highly valuable, traceable and verifiable carbon offsets. LBX will work with sponsors to match them with projects that will be tracked using the LBX blockchain technology while also providing time elapsed documentation, imagery and videos of the property being remediation and revegetation.
