7 Apps That Help You Go Green

Monday, May 18th, 2015 by | Filed Under: Android, iOS, Smartphones

Concerns about pollution and global warming mean that more people that ever are doing their best to go green, looking for ways to protect the environment. App developers have noticed this trend and are offering a lot of earth-friendly options. Let’s check out some of the most popular green apps.


Seafood Watch – Overfishing of certain species is a serious environmental issue. If you’re a seafood lover who wants to be responsible about your fish choices, this app helps you identify the best and worst sources.


Ecobee3 – Smart thermostats, like the Ecobee3, are excellent at keeping your house as comfortable as possible while using as little energy as possible. This one connects to a mobile app that lets you control the system and notifies it when you’ll be home. You’ll need to purchase the thermostat first before using the Ecobee3 app.


Locavore – For those interested in supporting local farmers and reducing transportation costs, the Locavore app helps make it easy to find food from local sources.



Carma Carpooling – Commuting in a car each day can cost a lot of money in gas and contribute to pollution. Carpooling is a great alternative, but it’s not always easy to organize. Apps like Carma Carpooling make it easier to find people near you to carpool with.


Leafully – This app lets you closely track your home energy consumption to help you find ways of cutting back. Getting accurate information is the first step towards saving money and reducing pollution.


Good Fish Guide – This is another app that lists the types of fish that are most sustainable, as well as those that are at the highest risk. It’s from the Marine Conservation Society and is regularly updated with new data.


Public Transit Apps – Living in or visiting a city with public transit can be a great way to save money and support the environment. However, planning the best routes can be a hassle, especially when you don’t know when the next bus will arrive. Mobile apps that provide trip planners and live updates are a great way to use your smartphone to take advantage of public transit.


Downloading these apps should be easy. If you’re using an iOS device, simply visit Apple’s App Store. For Android users, the apps can be accessed in the Google Play Store.

People are searching for new green solutions to help protect the rainforests, gain energy independence, and save money through energy efficiency. Innovation and technology play major roles in achieving ecological goals. High-tech solutions like photovoltaic solar panels and electric cars are just two of the countless technologies already being used. Not surprisingly, more people are looking to use their mobile devices as effective tools that will help them meet their ecological goals. This growing field of ecologically focused tech is an excellent opportunity. The market for “green” mobile app development is growing quickly and is wide open for all innovators.
