Ratings and Reviews
Fun and intriguing; suggestions for updates
This is a great way to really see how much we can have an impact on the environment (and our wallets) by being involved in sustainable actions. I do have a couple suggestions for possible updates for the app, though: 1) I wish we could mark activities with a star or heart and send them to a “My Habits” section/ folder as easy access for the ones we do the most. 2) I also wish we could label activities into a “Least Used” folder, because for example at this point there are some that I just cannot do, and I think it’d be nice if those activities were set into a folder on their own away from the rest. 3) I would love to have to option to label and put activities into a “To-Do List” or “Goals” section, which I think would make it easier to visually see which objectives you aim to do next. 4) Finally, it would be great if the app users had the option to submit their own ideas for new sustainability actions (I like that we can add our own with the “sustainable action” tab, but I mean more along the lines of actually sending it to the app managers to determine if they can add that new activity to the full list of actions)
I love this app, but as other people have said:
-I wish we could delete unintentional buzzes. I’ve accidentally buzzed before without adding the picture, and couldn’t just buzz it again and add it because that wouldn’t be fair.
-I wish there were more activities, because there actually aren’t that many specific to my lifestyle, and although the custom sustainable action is nice, i wish there were more activities with the specific numbers of waste/water/co2 saving specific to it
-I wish we could favorite activities we do a lot, and categorize ones that are impossible for us somewhere else so they don’t clog up all the others.
Fun environmental impact tracking
Who knew tracking your positive environmental impacts could actually be fun and competitive? I don’t think I’ve ever written an app review before but I’m very passionate about the ideas behind this app and it’s so incredibly well made! I’m surprised more people don’t know about this app. You just click a button any time you complete one of the eco-friendly activities like using a reusable water bottle instead of plastic, buy local produce, recycle, or volunteer and the app tracks your impact in areas like waste reduction and water saved. You can add photos and comments and join local competitions. Amazed by this app!
