Addicted to reducing my footprint

Wherever you are on your climate journey—disinterest, dread, nihilism, rage, optimism, obsession—this app is going to be a great tool for you. One night, I downloaded a bunch of zero-waste or climate-action-type apps (I'm in the "obsession" phase of my journey, you see), and this app is the only one I still use. And I use it regularly. First, it gives you a very rough estimate of your carbon footprint—prepare to be shocked. Hi, it's me, I'm the problem, it's me. Then it gives you categories of "actions" you can take to reduce your footprint, rated from easy to challenging, with the ability to set goals with deadlines in case you can't do it all right now, as much as you might want to. And the app has just the right amount of gamification—it's fun to browse and tap and make lists and such, but behind every compelling button or image is a hard-hitting list of tips, with links to credible resources and organizations doing the really hard work, like advancing policy, or innovating climate tech. And with every "action" you "achieve" you see your big ugly embarrassing carbon footprint go down just a little bit more. It's addictive, in the very best way.

So helpful!

I’m so happy to see sustainability enter the tech world through great apps like this🥰 I’ve deeply cared about environmental issues for at least a few years now, and I’ve recently gained a new sense of hope discovering the recent advancements made in digitalizing climate education. For some periods of time I’ve felt like I was carrying the weight of the world’s problems and guilt over how small the magnitude of my best efforts ultimately always were. But now seeing how much the small online community that fostered my education years ago has multiplied, and strengthened, and continued to stand resilient, is inspiring. Apps like Earth Hero give me the invaluable gift of community. It’s so much easier to maintain strength in my personal fight for climate action when I am able to see all the other people fighting that same fight with me. Getting to have the positive reinforcement drawn from a wealth of tips and information at your fingertips, plus encouragement from people who care about the same values, is really what we need and I love it.

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!!
