The scale of the environmental effect of global warming is complex and vast. It can seem ominous to the average person, and produce a sense of helplessness. Solving the issues require long-term commitment to changes in how each of us think and behave. Much of the problem is caused by national and corporate activities such as the operation of industrial waste, energy use, food processing, technology development, and travel. While its true that these large entities produce much of the negative effect on the environment, the collective behaviour of individuals has a large impact as well How we each live on a day-to-day basis has a minimum impact, but when each of our actions are added up the damage to the environment is vast.
As we go about are lives on a day-to-day basis the stressors of the day can push environmental concerns to the back of our heads. An ongoing reminder that provides options, incentives and resources would be useful in helping individuals to make environmentally friendly choices. With this understanding our team proposes a Carbon footprint app that would be supportive to individuals, and communities. This app will empower, educate and entertain.
