The average British person emits 800 kilograms of carbon emissions per month. If we want to limit global warming to 2°C by 2050, each global citizen should be looking at a figure closer to 191 kilograms per month.
How do you begin to do that? Well, it helps to know what your personal carbon footprint is in the first place. How do you find that out? Easy. Follow the money.
Yayzy uses open banking technology to give you a detailed and accurate understanding of how your consumption is affecting the planet. Many carbon tracking apps rely on estimates. Yayzy uses your actual outgoings.
Sync the app with your online bank account and you will receive a rich stream of data telling you how your purchases translate into carbon emissions – and where that places you in relation to United Nations targets.
You will almost certainly be surprised at the results. My weekly supermarket shop released HOW MANY kilograms of carbon dioxide?!
Yayzy not only nudges you towards more sustainable alternatives, such as reducing meat consumption or switching to a green energy provider. It also allows you to offset your emissions via a range of climate friendly initiatives, from planting trees in the Cardamom Forest, Cambodia, to investing in wind energy in Mauritania.
You can set up a subscription and automatically offset 100 per cent of your carbon footprint each month.
