Evocco is a sustainable food app that helps you track, improve and offset the carbon footprint of your food shopping to get back within planetary boundaries :)
Our planetary boundaries are the safe levels at which we can consume the earth's resources, the safe operating limits of the planet.
Currently, we're outside the boundaries, and we need to reduce consumption and emissions in every sector to get back to safety.
Everybody has a role to play, and what better place to start than with food?
In the app, we've set a monthly target for the CO2 of your food shopping to keep within planetary boundaries.
Try to keep your emissions below 65kg of CO2, and update your impact by photographing your receipts each time you shop for food.
Follow the tips to improve your score, and if you exceed the boundaries you can offset your impact by planting native woodland to get back inside!
Easily update your progress with the receipt scanner. Photograph your food shopping receipt from any Irish supermarket and get a sustainability and climate impact score for the products you've bought.
Get personalised tips based on your product choices. Find out which food products to buy more of and which to buy less of to improve your sustainability score.
Make your food shopping climate neutral by using our offset feature to plant native Irish woodland directly through the app. The forests we plant help restore essential habitats, promoting biodiversity as well as capturing carbon.
More Than Just Climate Impact
Of course, there's more to food than climate impact. To help you enjoy a healthy and sustainable diet we combine the climate impact of a food product with some of its nutritional content. This way our sustainability star rating helps you find the most nutritious food for the lowest climate impact.
Scientific Climate Impact Scoring
Rather than using qualitative (and often confusing!) eco labels to decide whether a product is climate friendly or not, we use a scientific methodology called Life Cycle Assessment (or LCA for short) for our scoring system. We've partnered up with the Swiss LCA scientists from Eaternity (www.eaternity.org) and work with them to ensure that we give you the most accurate climate impact scores possible, no matter what you buy. For more information, check out our blog: https://www.evocco.com/single-post/2019/11/08/The-Evocco-Star-Rating
Evocco won the UN Environment Young Champion of the Earth award in 2018 and has been widely recognised as a game changer for sustainability tech!
With Evocco, eating within planetary boundaries has never been easier. We’re on a mission to help everybody join the climate movement and can’t wait to welcome you to the community.
We got your feedback, and we've made some big changes for this version.
- We've stripped down the Basket Summary page to include just the information you want to see
- We've made the scoring system easier to understand by focusing on planetary boundaries and CO2
- We've improved the UI so it's easier to see scores for all the products that were in your basket
We hope you like the updates and, as always, if you've any feedback or suggestions please get in touch on email@example.com!
Ratings and Reviews
Track your climate impact
I love using the Evocco app after shopping to keep track of my climate impact. The carbon offset feature that allows contribution to re-planting trees in Ireland is excellent.
I love this app, so easy to use and make sure I shop as well as I can. Couldn’t imagine life without it!
This is such a great idea for an app. Checking in with each receipt keeps me on track in my journey to a more sustainable lifestyle. Guilt free!
