Reducing carbon footprint is vital to the prevention of global warming, and it relies on each individual to adopt a more sustainable lifestyle.
Transportation is one of the largest sources of carbon pollution, and due to the peaking CO2 level, it is urgent that we rethink how we commute.
Commute Carbon is an intelligent mobile app designed to reduce carbon emission from transportation by motivating individuals to choose more environmental-friendly commute methods.
Before commuting, users can view different routes and transportation methods and compare the carbon footprint. The app can automatically detect when the user is commuting and identify the transportation method. It will track the commute and log the carbon emission. The app incentivizes green commutes by giving awards (such as discounts for green products) to users for carbon offsets. Finally, The app also visualizes the user’s carbon emission from commuting to showcase the carbon footprint.
Utilizing design and technology, Commute Carbon aims to create a positive impact on the global climate.
