Monitor and Measure Your CO2 Footprint

When you launch this app you'll first need to pick your transportation/mobility type. After you do that you're ready to start tracking your activities. When you start your trip you turn it on and when you're done just turn it off. The app is able to then calculate the distance you traveled, factor in the speed at which you traveled, and then show you how much CO2 you could have saved by not driving in a car. It's a cool way to see how choosing different methods of transportation can affect the earth on a larger scale. The transportation types supported are train, bike, plane, car, or public transport.

The app has recently been updated so that it feels more engaging and dynamic, you can now earn rewards by having a low CO2 footprint, and you can compare yourself to other members of the app. The app doesn't have any customer comments or a customer rating at this time and requires iOS 7.0 or later to use.

You can share these choices with friends and family to help educate them and you can compare your stats with other members from around the world, in your country, or in your city.
