As sustainability consultants, we're all about using technology to go green. We're commonly asked in our eco friendly training for the best green apps for living a sustainable lifestyle. Those with an iPhone: take eco action now and check out these top 5 green apps:
- Carbon Tracker: This GPS-enabled carbon footprint application allows users to calculate their carbon footprint from daily commuting, business trips or vacations. Users can also create goals for maximum emissions in a month, then monitors progress. Great for expanding eco awareness in your daily life.
- iRecycle, makes it easy to find recycling locations anywhere in the U.S. Find places to drop-off your old cell phone or other items, get directions and find out what else they accept.
- GoodGuide: Use this app to find out what’s in 75,000 common household products. Reviewers praise the level of detail in the GoodGuide database as well as its ease of use.
- Greenpeace Tissue Guide: Research brands of consumer paper products to find the greenest tissues, paper towels, and toilet paper.
