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!!

Get it!!

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 ( 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.
