Alternative money gNamakeh
 
  Namake is a new slow money born in autumn 2002 from Sloth Club. Eco-papel and Tagua from Ecuador in South America that Sloth club treats as the fair-trade goods are used as the medium of exchanges called gNamakeh.
  Namake has neither any interest nor the term of validity as gift certificates.
  It can be used, for example, between Mr. Aand Mr. B or Mr. C and Cafe D, to realize the exchange of products and services under the condition of the agreement of both sides.
  Real money connects people and nature!
  Also the unique point of Namake is the more Namake is used the more it supports environmental activities in Ecuador. It means that it uses the system to make use of your purchase money of Namake to the activities of conservation of the environment in Ecuador.
  To say nothing of a sustainable material, Namake is a little greedy to tie the relation between the people and also assist in people of the community that works on the environmental protection activities in Ecuador.
   
 
Eco-paper money    
  Eco-papel is a recycling paper made in Bahia de Caraquez that is the town in the coast part known as an eco-city.
 

The forests of the mangrove are destroyed because of the rapid increase of the prawn industry, and the people whose base of life it changed became refugees. Eco-papel is a regional support environment project designed to reproduce the peoplefs life bases. A lot of employment is produced by collecting, and recycling the garbage thrown away in the town, and commercializing it. The circulation and the order by Namake bills bring The Eco-papel project stable employment and income.

  The gNh of Namake shows the unit on the surface of 100 Namake bill and 500 Namake bill, and a doubtful three finger in the upper right corner. There is gin Gaia we trusth under that, which is graciously parodied with gin God we trusth of the US Dollar.
  And the following poem, which is in the classroom of environmental elementary school thatNicola and Dario, who are the members of Sloth club and also the artificers of Eco-papel manage, is printed on the reverse.
 
Cuando el hombre haya talado el ultimo arbol,
Haya contaminado el ultimo rio,
Y haya cocido el ultimo pez,
!entonces!
Se dara cuenta de el dinero no se puede comer.
 
When the man cuts the last tree,
When the man pollutes the last river,
When the man eats the last fish,
Then! The man should notice that money is not edible.
  There is an illustration of the resident Ami Fujioka in the Junin Village that is a three-finger sloth under the forest at the bottom of this poem.
  The feature(characteristic?) of the Namake bill is that it is soluble in water though does not usually damage easily.
  It disappears beautifully if itfs washed by mistake. It returns easily to the soil.
   
  Tagua Coin
  Tagua is the ivory nut. This material used as a high-quality button material has developed as a sustainable fair-trade goods that takes place of the ivory. This is a means of protecting the elephant by the use of Tagua, and also the means of connecting with the thought of gElephantismh of Ryuichi Sakamoto who is a member of Sloth Club.
  Coins are in 7 colors associated with the rainbow. There are three kinds of holes at the center,(that is,) the circle, the square, and the triangle. Allhave the value of 1000 Namake though the color and the shape of the holes are irregular because they are handmade.
  It is just from playful spirit, like "TEIGEI" in the language of Okinawa.
