Ratings and Reviews
Easy to use, educational, and life changing!
I’m gonna admit that I’m pretty new to the environmental movement, but this app makes it so incredibly easy to get started, or continue, with your eco friendly actions. I love that not only can you calculate your own personal eco impacts with lots of precision, there is also a wide variety of actions recommended in the app that allow you to further reduce your emissions. I’ve learned a surprising amount of things from the scientific resources Earth Hero promotes which makes me feel so much more ready to take on climate challenges and support the right policies for positive change. Plus, I’ve been able to share this app with my family and friends as well so we can all work on climate goals together! Overall amazing app that works wonderfully and, to this day, I have had no technical issues with it! Thanks Earth Hero for helping change the way I look at the world!!

Thank you for the kind words. It is really inspiring to keep going. Thanks for spreading the word about the app to increase the positive impact and help people join together to create a better world! :-)
Love this app!! While I think systemic change should be prioritized over individual action, this is a great app that helps the user keep track of their own personal carbon footprint. I even learned quite a few things from their “actions” - for example, did you know there’s a tool out there where you can type in your bank & check to see if your bank funds oil?! I do wish there was a way you could undo *one* action’s impact on your carbon footprint without resetting the whole thing (for example, I can no longer air dry my clothes, so I know my carbon footprint isn’t as accurate anymore but I can’t undo the “action” by itself) but overall I think the app has a lot of great features, I can tell it’s been updated through the time I’ve had it, & it’s super user friendly & motivating!

Thanks for the kind words and being a part of the movement. We agree that system change is really important as well. That's why we include actions to act as levers to advance system change. These tend to be rated as higher impact as well because they generally are more impactful. If you have ideas for other system-change actions please let us know. Getting in touch through our website (www.earthhero.org) or the app are good ways to do so.
For Air Drying Clothes, it is impacting the energy source that you use to dry (likely electricity). If you check your kWh usage from your energy bill and input that into the Refine Energy section it will give the most accurate measure. The action impacts are good estimates, but your actual figures are going to be the most accurate.
If that does not make sense, feel free to get in touch and we are glad to help you get sorted out.
A good place to start
I got the app to have something to track my actual environmental impact. When I initially filled out the survey, my footprint was higher than I thought, which was a bit disheartening to be honest. Then I started going through their action/goal list, and after checking the things I already do, the number went down, which gave me a little relief to know how much what I did made a difference. Of all the different acts they have, there were only a few I doubted I would ever accomplish. However, the app itself admits that no one person will be able/willing to complete every action; as long as you do something (& hopefully multiple things), you are decreasing your footprint which is a step in the right direction & adding up to a positive impact on the world around you. I recommend this for anyone looking for a starting point & a way to keep track of your overall footprint.
