If there is one topic that marks our time, quite unarguably it is the human impact on climate change. Between choosing local, organic, vegetarian or fair trade products, it’s hard to understand the impact of our daily choices. So what if there was an app that would tell us exactly that: the ecological impact of individual products?
We can already get a better understanding of the ingrediënts of our products through apps as Yuka, and several NGO’s have already launched their apps that enable calculating your ecological footprint by filling out your daily habits. In France there is the We Act For Good app by the WWF and the somewhat similar 90 Jours and Eco Life Hacks. However, they do not provide information on individual products in the way Yuka does.
So the goal of this mission was:
Create an app that allows consumers to discover the economic impact of a product at a glance.
This is an entirely self-run project that lead to a fully functional prototype.
