Here is a quick list of the top 5 apps for a more sustainable life.
Using this app, you can trade some of your items for something more useful to you. The website works with a special currency called BTZ, used for purchasing and trading on the platform and from stores and cafes.
Most of the available places are in Toronto, but the list is always expanding, so don’t worry if you live elsewhere.
With this app, you can discover people around you who are willing to share food which otherwise would go to waste. Just take a photo, a pickup location and with whom to share it. Once you like something, you can send a request to that person and arrange a pickup.
Are you trying to reduce your carbon footprint? With this app you fill in a short questionnaire and determine your impact. Afterward, you will receive some tips and tricks on how to improve it. Viewing how your negative impact on the world reduces is so satisfying. There is also a community in this app, which helps you meet other like-minded people. You can compete against them and redeem rewards. This app is fun and super useful!
This one is also connected to one of the biggest problems of our time – food waste. With this app, you can have a shopping list and a tool for managing the groceries in your fridge in one. You will know how long you have for each item until it expires, which is very useful. You have first to set it up and then keep updating the grocery items. The app also includes a recipe finder when you don’t know what to do with the ingredients. With its help, you can save time, money and stop buying too much.
Do you want to find a compost to throw away the food scraps you have? This app shows you where the nearest one is or lets you become a host if you have compost. As a start, you have to choose the type of account – donor or host. The first ones would give food scraps, and the latter would recycle them. It is an awesome way of being more eco-friendly and saves you a lot of time, which would otherwise go into searching for composts in your current area.
