Keep score of your eco-credibility with the app – JouleBug
Apps have become more green than ever with an attempt to make sustainable travel and living as simple as possible via your smartphone. We have previously touched on apps that promote eco-friendly lifestyles and trips here and now we are spotlighting a cool app for both iOS and Android called JouleBug.
The concept of Joulebug is simple: according to their slogan, they are a new mobile app that helps you cut out energy waste to save money. Download it for free and save more than $200 a year!
By using a social (the app is integrated with both Facebook and twitter) & gaming element to this app, they want to make people more aware of their green impact on a daily basis, in a fun way that encourages activity. The way to earn points is straightforward, sign up to the app and start racking up points by making sustainable decisions like using eco-friendly cups instead of Styrofoam or skipping the car and taking your bike to work.
The app also includes a way to track your utilities and help you save money by learning how to use energy in a more sustainable fashion. Plus
each action or badge comes with a short informative summary which helps motivate (and educate) your daily actions.
Another cool aspect of this energy-saving app is that its not only for individuals, but also for corporations and organizations that want to reduce waste, save money and help the environment. Joulebug has already teamed up with several organizations in the USA to track sustainable efforts and make better conservation decisions in the future. While this app is not available in every country, we
are already a huge fan of the cause and plan on making this a daily task to earn badges and hopefully save the planet at the same time!
