FC Barcelona is spearheading a campaign to bring sustainability to the forefront in a groundbreaking partnership with Plastiks. This action marks an exciting move at the intersection of sports and the global plastic waste issue.
Plastic waste permeates every corner of our planet, from the deepest ocean trenches to the highest mountain peaks. Every year, humanity discards a staggering eight million tons of plastic into the ocean! This outcome underscores the urgent need to enhance the plastic economy.
Society must be more conscious of waste and its detrimental impact on environmental preservation.

A Remarkable Collaboration Between FC Barcelona and Plastiks
A single football match produces over 8,000 kilograms of plastic waste. FC Barcelona and Plastiks have united to recover at least 1,000,000 kilograms of plastic. This metric is equivalent to 35,000,000 one-liter plastic bottles. Therefore, this recovery will circumvent the consumption of 800,000 liters of oil required for their production.
As one of the world’s most renowned and popular football clubs, FC Barcelona has a massive fanbase. Therefore, the club actively seeks to empower its community by providing sustainability solutions rooted in Web 3.0. They aim to reduce environmental waste by merging Barça’s NFT vision with a positive environmental influence.
To achieve this objective, the duo proudly introduces an exclusive collection of NFTs. The “Unleash Your Passion” collection comprises 3,000 collectible digital art pieces with animal themes. Each NFT contributes to removing 35,000,000 kilograms of plastic from our planet.
The Plastiks marketplace now offers the animal themed NFTs from the Unleash Your Passion collection for $30 each.
