Individual actions for systemic change
There’s no denying that the actions you take as an individual can make a difference. Not using a straw could save a turtle, carpooling could save ~6 tons of CO2 a year.
But how does an individual go about saving an entire turtle species, or reducing CO2 by the billions of tons?
The answer (as always), Money. Thats’s where Econus comes in.
Econus is your platform for engaging in the economics of consumption. A platform for raising money alongside your individual actions.
Econus empowers you to connect the things you buy and their unintended consequences — like a tank of gas and the resulting air pollution, or a dollar menu burger and the unhealthy living conditions the cow lived in — and using the spare change from that purchase to fund things like carbon removal or animal protections.
How do we do it? Once you’ve connected the things you buy with the causes you care about most (we call this a Persona), we’ll Round-Up your spare change to the nearest dollar and donate it to the organization you want fighting for your change…with your change ;)
The true power of individual action is in your passion for your purpose and ability to connect with like-minded people.
Imagine creating your Persona, recruiting a crew to follow it, and knowing that whenever someone following your Persona makes a purchase that affects our environment or society, their spare change is being used to offset the unintended consequences of that purchase!
In economics lingo, we are mitigating consumption externalities and moving the needle one step closer to sustainability!

Yay for the environment!!
This app makes it super easy to minimize the ole carbon footprint. Love how you can pick the organizations that you want to support! We all talk about saving the planet but rarely take next steps. This app makes it easy!!!
Easy to use
Very easy way to contribute to causes you care about. Simple and user friendly. I’m a fan!
This is an amazing idea for sustainability, and a great way for the regular “joe or sue” to help a cause they are passionate about! Highly recommend this!
