Did you know that eco apps can help you reduce your environmental impact? If you've ever felt lost when it comes to saving the environment, then you are not alone! According to a recent study, 40 percent of Americans feel helpless about saving the planet. ‍However, there are many professional tools out there to help you positively impact the environment; ‍Here are five eco apps that can help you save the planet.

  1. Klima Eco App

Klima is an app that lets you offset your carbon footprint. The app calculates your carbon footprint and then compares it to your country's average person's carbon footprint.

After determining your carbon footprint, the app will provide you with multiple options to offset your emissions.

For example, if you are interested in investing your money in renewable energy, Klima gives you this option.

At this point, you might be thinking, "yes, offsetting is great and all, but how can I trust that my money is  actually invested in renewable energy?." Klima has made it its mission to be completely transparent about where your money is going.

Klima provides you with live updates on the overall CO2 emissions your money has helped reduce.

They also break down to the individual unit where that reduction comes from, be it the number of trees planted, kilowatt-hours of green energy produced, or clean cooked meals provided by your support.

Too Good To Go works with food companies and consumers to help stop 'out of date' food going to waste.

The eco app uses a geo-targeted map to show you restaurants, cafes, takeaways, and supermarkets with leftover food available for pickup. 

Too Good to Go has saved over 30 million boxes of unsold food from going to waste and has prevented 5000 tons of CO2 emissions.

3. Palau Eco App

Food production contributes to ⅓ of all global GHG emissions, yet there remains so little information to help individuals reduce their food footprint.

 Palau is an eco app developed to help consumers reduce the environmental impact of their food. By bringing transparency to the food supply chain, consumers can see exactly how their food products have impacted the environment.

 Palau provides consumers with an ecological and nutritional score out of 100.

Among other things, consumers can then see the amount of CO2 produced during the food product production, at what point in the food supply chain are most emissions produced, and if the packaging used is harmful to the environment.

Palau is bringing power to the people by helping you make informed decisions about the food products you buy.
